  • That Other Deschutes Beer

    Apr 22, 2005 by Bruguru is a Lead on Epinions in Restaurants & Gourmet
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nicely balanced, great roasted notes and aggressive hopping.
    Cons: Hard to find in most areas.

    Summary: I kind of feel bad for Black Butte Porter. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a wonderful little brown porter, and I really love it. But I think it falls victim to the middle child syndrome, if you will. It gets overlooked and falls into the shadow ... read more

  • One of my favorite porters.

    May 8, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Bold flavors and great example of the style.
    Cons: Not widely available

    Summary: When my wife and I travel, we love to find beers that are not available in our area.  On a recent trip to Las Vegas, we stopped in at the Pour24 bar in the New York New York Casino.  Since we cannot obtain beers from the Deschutes brewery and I ... read more

  • Hey Baby, Gimme Some o' yo' Soft, Sweet, Sexy Black Butte...

    Feb 20, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Makes me happy.
    Cons: The bottle eventually goes dry.

    Summary: If you think "ale" is just another word for beer, then you're not the kind of drinker who would appreciate porter. Porter is a dark ale, though way back in ye olde England of 1722, it was being invented as a blend of three different types of ale. Oh yes, ... read more

  • Great Oregon Beer

    Apr 24, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Dark flavorful beer. Brewed 20 miles from home.
    Cons: nothing!

    Summary: Porters are one of my favorite beers especially Oregon Porters. They have a thick taste to them almost oily but that is not a bad thing. Black Butte is a fine example of what a porter should be and if you are lucky enough to live in the North West you ... read more

  • I've tried most of 'em, but this one....WOW!

    Feb 3, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: A very outstanding Porter.
    Cons: Sometimes a bit pricey, but Safeway frequently has a good price.

    Summary: I've tried most Porters on the market, at least whatever I can get in Oregon. It's good to to try the others out there because you have to make comparisons. That's the goal of a true beer afficianado....making those comparisons. BBP still has the ... read more

  • A Beautiful Black Butt

    Jul 31, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy drinking, pleasant coffee, caramel, toasty, smoky balance
    Cons: Distribution

    Summary: For my second beer of the evening I thought it would be appropriate to stick with the Deschutes brewery, and this time try their porter. For those of you not familiar with the style, porter is the founder of stouts, and is a little lighter in body and ... read more

  • A Perfect Porter?

    Jan 25, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Rich flavor and bouquet, a hint of bitterness, pleasant aftertaste
    Cons: It's not as cheap as Coors.

    Summary: I've been drinking Black Butte Porter for a few years, and it's managed to hold the throne of "Favorite Brew" since I first drew a pint at the Horse Brass Pub, in Portland, OR. It is, without question, a fine porter -- a robust, dark, earthy ... read more

  • Oregon's Best Porter

    Jul 27, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Everything a porter should be
    Cons: limited distribution

    Summary: It was a hot day. I was eating ribs off the main street of Sisters, Oregon on my way back from Bend. I thought, "what's the local beer like?". I ordered Black Butte Porter and the day got better. The full body and rich taste make this beer ... read more

  • Fantastic Porter!

    Jul 8, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: smooth, not too malty, not too hoppy
    Cons: none

    Summary: Black Butte Porter is the best example of a porter that I have ever sampled. It also ranks as one of the three best beers in the world, along with Hale's Pale Ale and Aventinus, a German wheat dopplebock filling out the holy trinity. For ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: GREAT taste, smooth, real good porter
    Cons: I can't find it in Colorado

    Summary: ok so I was in Oregon staying at the Marriott in Beaverton. I ordered dinner to my room and found that they also served beer. (I'm really saying that they served *real* beer) Budweiser, Coors, Michelob etc don't cut it and really don't have a lot to ... read more

  • Dark beer for winter, BAH drink this year round!

    Feb 3, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Smooth, wonderful aftertaste, full bodied
    Cons: Very hard to just drink one!

    Summary: I'm no beer expert, but I do enjoy a variety of beers. I especially like dark beers. Black Butte Porter is one of my all time favorites. Ten minutes from my house is a small pub that has Black Butte Porter on tap. If you can find such a locale ... read more

  • An enjoyable store bought micro-brew.

    Jan 29, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great flavor, no after taste.
    Cons: A bit pricey compared to average beer.

    Summary: I am quite a fan of our local micro-brews, but when it came to buying a grocery store beer, I was left flat! Most had such a bitter nasty after taste, that the initial enjoyment was ruined. A good dark micro-brew has a smooth full flavor, without any ... read more

  • Your Reward for the Work You've Done

    Jan 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fabulous, full, fulfilling.
    Cons: This was my only one. Now I have to go out in the cold to buy more.

    Summary: You could probably get a much more erudite, fact-laden, jargonistic review from someone else, because I'm no beer reviewer. I'm just a guy who likes a good beer once in awhile (very rarely do I drink more than one in a night). So here's what I know about ... read more

  • A Porter to change your opinion

    Jan 14, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Rich, Bold taste
    Cons: None.

    Summary: After turning 21 I started to check out different beers, and what better place than the NorthWest. Since I really hadn't developed a taste for beers yet, most friends recommended a Hefeweisen. I stuck with lighter beers for about a year, till I went ... read more

  • Guinness' ugly step-sister

    Jan 14, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Just a good beer
    Cons: Not for the weak

    Summary: This beer's got 'tude. It's direct, to the point, and all sissys should steer clear. A hearty, bitter nut taste makes this beer a necessity for after work gatherings at the pub, and pool games on Saturday night (or darts at the Green Lantern Tavern in ... read more

  • Oregon's best

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: smooth, delightful
    Cons: not easy to find outside of oregon

    Summary: After living here in Oregon for just a year or so, I began to find out that this is indeed a beer lovers and wine lovers heaven. There are microbreweries all over the state of delicious beers. There are also vineyards scattered all over the state. ... read more

  • Why, oh why can't the East Coast get beer like Deschutes!

    Jan 5, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A dark beer lovers fantasy
    Cons: Very difficult to find. Really only available in Oregon.

    Summary: Deschutes Black Butte Porter was, by far, my favorite Oregon beer when I lived there during grad school in 1996. For those who don't already know, Oregon is a beer fanatics heaven. There are so many wonderful beers available in Oregon that can't be ... read more

  • Best of the Northwest

    Jan 4, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Tastes really really good
    Cons: Not available on East Coast

    Summary: Exiled in the beer-poor East Coast, I'd forgotten how much I love Black Butte Porter until I went to visit in Oregon. Every other porter I've come across since Black Butte first touched my life has paled in comparison. Of course, it all comes down to the ... read more

    Pros: Rich flavor, like a real beer should be. This is not your girlfriends sipping bear.
    Cons: Not on the east coast, that I can find

    Summary: I have to say I've tried a lot of beers, English beer, German beer, and of course American beers and Black Butte is still the best. I live on the east coast and can only indulge in this great beer on the rare occasions when I can get over to the west ... read more
