It looks to be a walnut end grain. Here is a good source for butcher blocks. http://chopbloccuttingboards.com/butcher-block-countertops/

What Houzz contributors are saying:

decordemon added this to Cool Countertops: Wood and Stainless
Another big part of wood countertops is edge finish. Super chunky and thick is a great option for those with contemporary taste; bull nose and beveled edges add a traditional look. The island here appears to be some sort of custom, tiered edge which is transitional, it can go either way.
Wood counters have never really gone away and are currently enjoying a bit of a renaissance. Adding a wood top to an island while using a different material for the perimeter counters is a terrific way to add some interest and function. Wood counters require periodic oiling to prevent them from drying out but they add a warmth no other material can.More about wood countertops

Wood counter on center island--other material on the rest. White cabinetry. Darker wood floor. Neutral back splash and built-in cabinets so not ALL white, and plays off the wood counter top on the center island.
