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.

A very dark brown edging toward and possibly into black, this porter also has a red hue to it. A soft-looking but clearly strong tan head easily reaches one finger tall and a but more. Retention is good and lacing is left in nicely thick patches.
On the nose, a nice strong roast leads into exactly what the label promises: hints of chocolate and coffee. There's something a little creamy in there, almost buttery, with a slightly nutty something. There's a good strength to it as well as balance, nothing overdone but with plenty of depth. A ghost of toasted barley sneaks in under the other notes here.
Not all of the complexity translates to the flavor, but this is a very good porter. There's just a bit of bitterness that speaks of floral hops along with the big, roasty malt. There's no acridity or harsh edge.
Crispness gives just enough without going overboard for the style, while moderate carbonation is consistent. It gets quite a nice smoothness to it overall.

12 oz bottle pours opaque black with good tannish head and lacing. Good meaty and smokey porter aroma. Taste is dark roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and a hint of bacon. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with a drying finish. I have a fondness for porters and this one is very well done.

Bottle dated 6/1/13B. This was my wedding day, and the beer was picked up on my honeymoon in Colorado... Better ask the wife i I have to keep this bottle.

I got a finger of tan head over a deep dark brown body. A thin froth stays up top, and lacing readily clings to the side.

I smell toffee, coffee, roasted malt and chocolate.

Taste is to the nose, with a hint of dark fruit up front, and a taste of roasted nuts near the end.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied. It coats slightly and finishes slightly dry.
