She's a Butte, That Ol' Number XXIII

Black Butte XXIII,
Deschutes annual take on the Imperial Porter style, has arrived in Albuquerque. The ingredient list reads like a crock pot recipe, with Seville orange peel, cacao nibs, and pasilla negra chiles all added in the brewing process. Add on the fact that 25% of the beer was aged in bourbon barrels and then blended in for the final product, That sounds better than my pot roast any day, though I'm not sure my Black Butte XXIII leftovers would be quite as welcome at work. The limited-release Butte goes for $11.99 for a 22 oz. bottle.
