I’ll admit it is not the parting of the Red Sea, not the Seven Loaves and Fishes, it’s not even water into wine but it is a miracle none the less…. We have just received 10 more cases of Deschutes Black Butte Porter XX. I’m just as surprised as you are.
Here is what the brewery has to say about it......
Black Butte XX is a tribute to Black Butte Porter, the revolutionary Deschutes Brewery beer that has excited beer enthusiasts since its release in 1988. This special Reserve Series brew is an extreme version of Black Butte Porter that the Deschutes brewers enhanced with several pounds Bellatazza coffee, Theo’s Chocolate cocoa nibs and by aging parts in Stranahan’s whiskey barrels. These regional partners from Bend, Seattle and Denver, respectively, each provide quality artisan ingredients that give this commemorative beer a truly handcrafted complexity.
