I just got word that the Deschutes Black Butte XX is due in the first part of July. We are now taking pre-sell orders. That means we will fill the order sequentially and it’s first come first served until our allotment is gone. The price is tentative; there may be a small adjustment up or down. I’ll let everyone know if the price is higher.
This was the review from last year. I"ll post a new one for this year as soon as I can.
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.
