My second shot with the hard to find Oregonian.
My first time with the Black Butte Porter.
Ok I first thought that it was Obsidian Stout but its actually the Black Butte Porter. Here's my first taste of it...
Craft-y brewer, Deschutes Brewery out of Bend Oregon are starting to get on my nerves. Why? I just had a pint of Black Butte Porter with my brother Ron. He had a couple stashed away from a foray down in Oregon. Anyways, the taste is utterly amazing and it's best summed up with the lyrical description from the website:
"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."
And, it's not available up here. Thats why I'm mad! One of the finer porters I had the pleasure of enjoying and I can't go down to the local and grab a sixer. Oh well, before turning for home I decided to ride off the frustration... in the rain.
Yeah, I still like you Black Butte Porter!
