Deschutes Black Butte Porter ....

Saturday night and time for a Black Butte Porter from Deschutes Brewery.  5.2% ABV is listed on the twelve ounce bottle.  Their web site shows 30 IBUs.

The Black Butte poured with a brown, medium head.  It is a dark reddish-brown that very little light penetrates.   I get a slight hint of coffee in the aroma, and a little sweetness that seems like honey.  The flavor has some nice hops, with a little bitterness.  I would say it is on the strong side of medium.  A heavier mouth feel, with a malty finish.  Very little aftertaste.
