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.

Thanks to my buddy who brought it in from Colorado. Poured from 12oz bottle (no date stamp) into pint glass. Pours a deep dark brown, not quite black with a thin pale khaki head that fizzles away quickly and leaves drippy lacing. Aroma is subtle with a little wafting roast nuttiness and some sweet notes. Flavor packs three strong components: roast malts (more like burnt bread than coffee), powerful sweet flavors, all offset by some strong hoppy bitterness. This porter has normal porter body, but an odd twist...almost like a lactose smoothness that could explain the sweetness as well. Overall a good above average porter!
