Deschutes Brewery–Black Butte XXIII

23 February 2011


Here’s your first look at the 23rd Birthday Reserve release of Deschutes Black Butte Porter XXIII.  I’m a big fan of Deschutes and I always chase down their beer when we hit Spokane every year.  Black Butte will come in 22oz packaging, come in at 11% ABV and come with a cool tag stating it is best AFTER 11/15/11.  Hopefully after last year’s reclass of the 22nd version of BB, they have the quality issues worked out.  Black Butte XXIII is a “Porter with cocoa nibs, orange and natural flavors added, with 25% aged in bourbon barrels.”  The nibs come from Theo’s and there are also Pasilla Negra chilies in the crazy mix.

I’m also giving you a peek at the new Red Chair Seasonal keg packaging (6% ABV Northwest Pale Ale), Mirror Pond Pale Ale keg packaging (5% ABV) and Black Butte Porter (non-Imperial version—5.2% ABV)…all just approved today.

Just brought one of these home and drank it before reading the "best after" fine print. Now I have to buy another to keep around for a while! Mine says best after 6/15/2012. Fantastic beer. The wood flavor dominates, but it is amazingly balanced by the malt flavors.
