Notes/Commercial Description:
Not quite a stout but definitely no lightweight, Cutthroat Porter is smooth and robust. Inspired by the classic London porters, we use dark roasted malts to create a deep, rich color and flavor that hint at chocolate and coffee. We named it Cutthroat Porter as our tribute to the Colorado state fish – with its own rich heritage and unmistakable dark coloring. And while we’re big fans of small batches, here’s to the currently threatened Cutthroat population reaching mass quantities.

07/10/07- Purcahsed at "The Liquor Store", in Jackson Hole, WY.

Presentation- 12oz bottle with a best by date imprinted on the lower side of the label. Poured into a standard pint glass.

Appearance- Deep brown in color approaching black. One inch head upon the pour and leaves a nice ring of creamy foam on the finish. Off white in color with lace patches here and there.

Smell- Very deep roasted malt. Smells like a tad burnt as well. Maybe a whiff of bitterness from the hops to come.

Taste- Hopes vanished after the first sip of being a tasty beer. Very watery. Best way to describe this beer is carbonated water with a bit of super roasted malt and a dash of liquid smoke. Some bitter hops to back it up, but just not flavorful at all.

Mouthfeel- As stated above. Carbonated water carbonation and super thin.

Drinkability- I'll pass on this one if I ever see it again.

On tap at Barley’s. Some floral and citrus hops with roasted malts. Vary dark brown to black. Full, lasting, tan head, with good lace. Light roast flavor. Little bitterness. Fruity. Pretty thin. I think this is supposed to be a robust porter. Somthing is wrong. I may re-rate some day.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Pours a dark reddish brown. The lace does not stick for very long and the head dissipates quickly.

S - Smells like chocolate. A slight copper hint to it.

T - The taste of this beer is chocolatey. Slightly roasty but the taste falls quickly.

M - The body is light and carbonation seems to be slight or almost unnoticeable.

O - A light crisp beer. Something I would not really purchase again but an average porter.

12 oz. bottle with bottling date of 10-27-04.

Poured almost black, with a tan head that quickly left, leaving only a thin layer of foam.

Roasted malts in the nose, although if I'm not mistaken this beer style calls for black malts rather than roasted malts like a stout. Coffee, cocoa powder, syrupy sweetness. Also an off metallic smell.

Flavor was dark roasted malts with a nice bitterness from hops lasting into the finish. Also got a wet cardboard taste, and I have to wonder if the distributor has let this beer get hot or freeze.

Had a second bottle with a pizza and all of the bad characteristics disappeared.
Good carbonation, nice texture.

I've had Cutthroat Porter on more than an occassion, and have been impressed. The last batch I bought was kind of off too, so I think it's where I'm getting it, not the brewer's fault.

12 oz bottle. 4.8% abv.

Very dark mahogany color, thin tan head leaves a bit of oily lacing behind it.
The sweet, dark roasted malts dominate this one..with some bitter chocolate and coffee, and a little dark chocolate also. The body is simply too thin to carry the flavors effectively. It goes down alright, but the lack of anything unique and the weak body would probably discourage me from drinking this on any regular basis.

We sampled this one at the Odell Taproom with some friends, a few Saturdays ago. Not much to distinguis this one from the regular tap version. Poured a nice dark brown/black color, with a creamy beige head. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malt and light coffee. On the palate, medium bodied and hollow tasting, with flavor s of dark chocolate, roasted malt and cocoa.
