Black Butte Porter, an American Porter by Deschutes Brewery

Share This Review

Black Butte Porter is an American Porter brewed by Deschutes Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip pint glass from a bottle.


The ale pours black and is topped by a thick cap of tan foam that reduces slowly. The reduction leaves a smattering of lace on the glass.


The aromatics are pleasant with a scent of dark chocolate and roast malt.


The palate follows the nose with flavors of chocolate, roast, and coffee meeting a mild hop bite.


Its body is smooth and creamy with a medium body and low carbonation.


The Black Butte Porter is thoroughly enjoyable and an excellent representation of the style. Not so surprising that it’s won so many awards.

About the American Porter

The American Porter is a malty dark brew whose palate is complex and flavorful dark malts and varying hops. Historically, it’s an aggressive variant of the English Porter and Pre-Prohibition American Porters. It’s more assertive than an American Brown Ale but not as strong or bitter as the American Stout.
