For the twelfth day of Christmas my craft beer store gave to me, Black Butte Porter by Deschutes Brewery.
The Deschutes Brewery is based in Bend, OR and has a wonderful array of craft beers available. I was hoping to get my hands of this years Jubelale, but wasn't that lucky. I was able to grab a six pack of Black Butte Porter while on vacation in Arizona, which was very pleasant. The Porter poured as a dark beer, and as Deschutes flagship brand, it provides a great drinking experience. According to the Deschutes Brewery website, Black Butte defined Deschutes as a radical player. It provides a slight hop bitterness up front followed by a rich roasted chocolate finish. This beer has a smooth finish that gives it an intense flavor. This is a fantastic beer that has been awarded several medals from many different contests. If you can find this beer, or any beer by Deschutes, grab it when you can.
I hope you enjoyed the 12 Beers of Christmas series. I hope next year it will be as successful as this year. If you have any comments or suggestions please feel free to leave them in the comments section.
