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.

3.84/5  rDev -6.3%

12oz bottle poured into a nonic pint. Best before 5/3/14

A - Decent clarity, dark brown. Great cap of tan head that holds strong. Tons of lacing.

S - Huge munich malts. Fainter chocolate. Clean.

T - Rich toasty malts that are bright. Roast malts dry up the flavor. Sweetness is minimal. Finish is crisp and aftertaste is short.

M - Medium to medium-light body, medium-high carbonation, semi-dry.

O - Malt pops in the taste and is never really sweet. Great look, very sessionable.

Recommendation - Easy to drink a six pack and well worth it.

Bottle poured into 3/4 glass.

Thick black with an off white head, good retention.

Smell - Caramel, Brown Sugar, Coffee

Taste - Caramel and Coffee all the way through, slight hop kick at the end

Mouthfeel - Smooth, goes down easy, so smooth you can't tell it's 5+%

Good for after a days work and even at a BBQ with a steak.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter on a cold icy Sunday morning. Deep dark and thick with a chocolate brown color...almost black. Nice off white head, dissipated rather quickly. Sticky lacing throughout review.

Mostly bitter dark chocolate on the nose...maybe a hint of caramel coffee.

Nice carbonation on a medium balanced mouth feel...a semi sweet tootsie roll creaminess in the middle followed by a dry dark bitter chocolate finish. As with the beginning of the taste the finish is a hit of tiny bubbles popping in my mouth/throat.

A decent porter from Odell, I prefer mine a little more sweet, the bitter finish lingers a little long for my liking. Gets better as it warms, probably won't buy again but wouldn't turn a free one down...
