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.

Poured into a standard pint glass. The beer is a coffee black, with a slight ruby tint when held up to the light. The cream colored head dissipates fairly quickly, but leaves a thin film. Lots of sticky lacing. The beer smells of roasted malts and bitter chocolate. This is a solid tasting porter. It does all of the obvious components well: roasted malts, bitter chocolate, a smokey quality, and there is a slightly sweet addition in there somewhere. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slightly dry finish.

Overall, this is just a well balanced, solid porter. It looks good, it tastes good, it feels good. Odell do a lot of things well, and their porter is no exception.

12oz bottle poured into New Belgium globe. Pours black with beige head that dissolves to a thin film, not much lacing. Appears a bit oily although not thick.

First smell is espresso grounds, some alcohol comes across and it's only 5%. Bittersweet chocolate, roasted almonds, leather.

Light bodied, medium carbonation but very tasty. Black coffee, raw sugar, slightly metallic. Bitter chocolate on the back end. Peppery bitterness really lingers, slight saltiness. Starts lacing the glass after several sips and increase in temp.

An excellent, very drinkable porter. Personally I'd prefer it a bit thicker but overall this is very good and I wish I had access to Odell in FL. Thanks to ShawnBGP for including it as an extra!

Really like this beer. I just learned what a "session beer" is, and I'm all giddy to review one so soon after learning what they are.

Pours black with copper bubbles and a mocha head, but it looks like a dark mahogany when held up to a light. Lots of strong coffee smells.

The taste is what I'm guessing makes this a good "session beer." It's 5% ABV — not much — but the flavor packs a wallop. Lots of brewed coffee and toasty malt flavors. I tasted traces of hops, but the beer was very well balanced. Clean finish as well. Good mouthfeel, but not as much as I'd want.

What can I say? It's rich, flavorful and easy to drink. I could see myself drinking this with breakfast and not feeling ashamed.
