Black Butte XXVII
A Note on This Beer
After twenty-seven years of world-class brewing, Deschutes Brewery showcases decades of craft mastery with Black Butte XXVII Birthday Reserve. A debonair amplification of their legendary Black Butte - one of the finest Porters in the world - XXVII is an 11.6% ABV, Bourbon barrel-aged refinement brewed with rose water, cacao nibs, apricot puree, and pomegranate molasses.
XXVII takes the drinkability of Black Butte and dresses it to the nines. Cocoa nibs boost deep chocolate notes with roasted class. Apricot puree softens the boozy bite with nectarous sweetness, balanced by the signature tart of exotic pomegranate. A touch of rose water caps the brew with a spritz of juicy florality.
Fifty-percent of XXVII then takes a 6-month beauty rest in Bourbon barrels, appreciating the burning woody-sweet flavor of Kentucky’s famous elixir.
Bottle conditioned, Black Butte XXVII’s flavor supernova expands as it ages. Deschutes suggests cellaring until 7/20/15 before enjoying, but this brewed sophistication is delicious anytime.
Notoriously difficult to procure, Black Butte XXVII is an exceptional treasure. Clutch onto a few for excellent bribes or trade bait for your friends, or save XXVII for yourself to satisfy cravings for suave decadence.
