Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 05-19-2001

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.

Classic example of the style. Even better when you can get the nitro draft!

From the bottle, a rich dark brown color with a light tan head (about 1/4 inch) dissolving to a lacy foam in about a minute. Light malty slightly sweet aroma with a hint of something maybe earthy or charcoal. Toasty malt flavor with notes of coffee and molasses. Very lightly hopped. Pretty mild overall with only a slight bitterness. Very drinkable, not sure about the 99 from Bros.

Not bitter at all. Very complex for a porter.

A: black as the night, at some moments you can see through the dark carmel hue, marvelous..

S: typical sweet porter smell, to me that earns a 4.5! I love it dark :)

T: Its a porter, but on top of that, dark, sweet, smokey, ooowee. what is this? 4.75

M: Thick and smooth, reminiscent of summer BBQs. Wow, I can't fathom the idea of a brew with all these attributes but damn, here it is.

O: yuuuup

355ml bottle from Blackfriars, Glasgow (£4.50):
Quite a nice and definitely an enjoyable beer, one that went down quite easily despite not being just as good as I had been hoping going in. The taste was a little basic perhaps with the roasted malts and cocoa seemingly dominating without overpowering. A solid effort but I'm not confident it's a beer that I'm likely to pick up again.
