Black Butte Porter

Deschutes Brewing Company - United States

Available in 12oz bottles

Alcohol Content: 5.20% by volume

Towering high above Central Oregon, jetting into clear blue skies, Black Butte can be seen for miles. From its base flows the legendary Metolius River--with its source hidden deep beneath ancient lava flows.

Black Butte Porter, crafted from chocolate and crystal malts, is Deschutes Brewery's flagship brand. With a rich and distinctive flavor, this porter has enjoyed a loyal and passionate following since its first pint in 1988.

One of Deschutes's original triumvirate of craft beers and still the best reason on record to visit Bend, Oregon. If you can't taste one over a hot baked pretzel at their mid-Oregon brewpub, the company obligingly ships it southward to those of us thirsting for maltbased honesty and integrity. Completely free of that disappointing wet-newspaper-in-the-mouth taste of lesser porters, it's a vibrant, elastic brew that goes the distance with power, style and Lance Armstrong-like pacing.
