Style: Porter
ABV: 5.2%
7.5 Stars

Fall is upon us here in Michigan and with it comes lower temperatures, bonfires, and hoodies.  For me, it’s also time to shift away from Summery wheat beers and grab a darker, heavier beer to warm my belly.  Deschutes’ Black Butte Porter is the perfect transition beer from Summer to Fall.  It’s dark but is not as heavy as a bold Wintery stout.

Black Butte Porter pours with a medium, white head, and smells of malt with hints of coffee and chocolate.  It has a dark black, almost amber color and a creamy, medium body. The medium body is what distinguishes this porter as a good choice in the Fall.  The beer tastes predominantly of malt and chocolate with a slight roasted character, and a smooth yet lingering finish.

At 5.2% ABV and the medium body, this is an easy drinking, session beer.  You’ll be right at home in front of a roaring fire, sharing stories with friends, and sipping this delicious porter.
