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.

It's a beautiful thing seeing this beer fill a pint glass. Blackish brown with a considerable tan head that has staying power. Lacing left the whole way down.

Smells of cocoa and coffee. Chocolate and roasted malts dance in the nose of this.

Taste follows suit. Rich, rich malts. Sweet and wonderful.

Mouthfeel knocks this thing out of the park. The nitro-infusion is remarkable. If my taste buds were scorched off I might mistake this for chocolate milk. So amazing!

Overall, I love this beer. So drinkable and so enjoyable. Best served on a cold evening with good friends.

this is a fantastic porter, shouldnt be surprised from odell... pours a THICK dark brown with a small mocha head. smells like a coffee milkshake with a strong roasted backbone and a slight alcohol tinge, dark chocolate, and a bit of sweet. tastes like much more than a standard porter, huge profile complimenting the nose. full bodied and mellow as it warms. drinkable despite the full body, might become my go to this winter. yum yum yum

dark brown with a nearly black look to it and a nice two inch head of tan. The aroma was loaded with chocolate and rich roasted malts. Big sweet profile here. As I go in for th first taste I am over whelmed with cocoa and rich dark tones. Nice touches of molasses and rich sweet flavors that carry over into a huge sweet finish. Big body on this and a great easy drinking feel.

Purchased From: Mass Bev, Lawrence, KS

App- A very dark brown pour with two fingers of a medium receding head that falls to a sliding pond layer. A good amount of cling.

Smell- A full nose of roast and grain with some malt and a bit of dark chocolate.

Taste- A very good porter. It was roasty, malty and a bit thicker than most. As it warms it opened to more of dark chocolate flavor and a bit grainular.

Mouth- Medium bodied and medium carbonated. Warm malts and some chocolate powder with a very good grain bill.

Drink- A very tasty porter. This was warm, malty, and roasty. Very smooth and easy to drink. Up there with Deschutes and Great Lakes.

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

A - Pours a dark mahogany colour, ruby red hue, finger of mocha head with solid retention and lacing.

S - Light mocha notes, dark cocoa, milk chocolate, and hints of espresso.

T - The milk chocolate and cocoa notes shine on this one, the espresso sneaks up on the finish and a touch of leafy green hops offset the sweet with just enough bitterness.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and wet.

O - A fantastic porter that gives you a perfect bitter-sweet balance. Easy drinking and delicious. A sessionable porter for sure.

Presentation: 12 oz longneck, typical Odell bottle and label. Best by date and ABV printed on the label.

Appearance: Very dark with just a hint of ruby when held to the light .. nice tan colored head with good retention and lacing.

Smell: Lots of roasted aroma, with coffee and cocoa.

Taste: Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Roasted flavor, quite a bit of bitterness.

Overall impression: Nice drinkable porter - medium mouthfeel isn't too heavy, so I could definitely drink several.
