3.3/5 rDev -19.7%
Poured this 12 oz. brown bottle into a Samuel Smith tulip glass. Dated best by 070907. The body was dark brown/cola colored and free of sediment. The head lingered and was an off-white color.
Smell was cocoa powder and ground coffee. Pleasantly acidic aroma.
Taste was tart/tangy. Roasted malts, mildly burnt toast. Bittering aftertaste. Nicely balanced elements.
Mouthfeel was very carbonated and medium in body. A bit too much for my idea of a fine porter.

Sampled from 12 oz. bottle.
Large light brown head, well carbonated. Color is very dark brown, almost black. Aroma is chocolatey sweet and roasty. Flavor is coffee and chocolate throughout. Like a bitter vanilla latte (says A). Medium body. Aftertaste is sweet, chocolatey. Alcohol slightly noticeable towards finish as it warms.

Acquired via trade. Pours a light mahogany color with a ruby-red halo. Thick foamy tan head that lasted pretty well, and nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Flavor is sweet, mostly malt with some chocolate and cocoa lingering. I felt everything was a little on the thin side though. Mild hops in the finish, but overall the beer was a little too soft.

[Best served in a Nonic Pint glass]
The pour was a murky dark brown with a large (2-3 finger) frothy light brown head that to some extent lasted throughout and produced some really nice spotty lacing.
The aroma was kind of mild of a roasted dark bread malt and an earthy yeast with notes of chocolate, coffee and just a bit of toffee.
The taste was mildly sweet and malty with a slight toffee note in the beginning with a taste progressing into a slight bitter sweet roasty flavor with a noticeable infusion of chocolate and a moderate coffee presence at the end. The flavor lasted only a short while with the chocolate coffee flavor fading fast.
Mouthfeel was just about medium in body and smooth and creamy in texture with a nice soft carbonation.
Overall a slightly passive tasting Porter, with that being said it is still quite delightful to drink.

This is not a bad tasting beer for some beers lovers but this is not not a porter with great qualities.
I poured this porter into a nice little chalice. This is not a black black porter. Cutthroat is dark but a little thin texture, which is expected in a porter, but also in color. Looking down I can see a lot of brown, darker brown. The head was a little soft even after a pretty hard pour.
The aromas were exceedingly average.
The taste is good. It's not that sweet and I personally like sweet so I compromise and gave it a 3 average. Cut Throat is heavy on coffee with a bakers chocolate. A little malty. A little sweet, but weighs more on the bitters. Could be a great taste for the dry side beer lovers. Just not me so I rate the taste as having good quality, but a 4 for me.
The texture is a little too fizzy my preference. I won't compromise. I find it it somewhat hard to swallow. LOW MARKS!
This porter is built for some wonderful Australian electronic music. I would prefer LAWRENCE ENGLISH "KIRI NO OTO"

It poured a finger and half of tan head on a dark brown body.
The aroma is roasted malt, chocolate and nuts.
A roasted malt flavor to start, mild bitter in the middle, a short finish though.
It has a fizzy texture with moderate carbonation and medium body.
This beer looked great and smelled nice but the taste was pretty average. Easy to drink though.

A: 1 finger width head quickly giving way to decent lacing down the glass. Dark brown purple color.
S: Smells like being in an aspen forest very weird but very cool. I also got plenty of coffee smells and sweet malts. Once the beer warmed up more I really got the coffee smells.
T: It had a very sweet mocha latte flavoring but has a weird latex finish. I decided to let this one sit after my first taste to see if the aftertaste would subside and instead I got a really bland beer so don't let it get warm.
M/D: Grainy feel but not heavy, sweet but not bitter at all. Very drinkable for the masses not the best though.

Poured into Great Lakes snifter.
Pours about 1/2 finger of beige head that fades to a ring fast. Pours a copper brown, but settles black in the glass.
Aroma: Very roasted here. Almost has some smoked flavors. The malts almost seem burnt. It also has some sharp rich cherry/raisin flavors. As it warms, notes of dark chocolate and coffee roast show.
Taste: Very big roasted flavor again. I think I taste some cherries in here as well. It has chocolate and coffee with some fresh earthy hops to add a touch of bitterness to it as well.
Mouthfeel: Roasted, rich, and crisp(odd). Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends very roasted.
Overall, this beer is a ton of roasted malts. It has some decent flavors and I think it is fairly good. However, this is a porter you need to be in the right mood for. Relatively drinkable.
