Black Butte XXV Aged 1 Year

  • SRM Color : 70
  • Brewer: Deschutes Brewery
  • Brewer's Description:  Dates, figs and chocolate. Black currants, barrel-aged in bourbon casks. The result is an Imperial Porter with a tart berry and chocolate aroma with luscious layers of dried fruit, oak and vanilla. A fitting tribute to the 25th Anniversary of our flagship beer.
  • Recommended Glassware: Goblet
  • Russ' rating: 9.5 of 10
  • With the brew: Waiting
  • Comments: I waited a year to drink this one and I have to say it was totally worth it. Black Butte XXV pours a viscous almost oily black with little or no head at all. The aroma is malty sweet and carries a roasted note dipped in chocolate. The flavor is intense and up front. Rich roasted grains and a hint of coffee flavor, but fades as you swallow leaving no bitter aftertaste. Even with an ABV of %11.3 it is not at all alcohol forward. Exceptionally drinkable. I can hardly wait until next year when I can try it again.
