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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.
