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!

got this one from bort11 as part of Brews N Tunes 3. thanks tim!

12oz bottle, dated 07 09 07. sampled may 21/08.

pours deep brown, showing some red highlights when held to the light. big dense tan head that drops fairly fast and leaves lots of lace. looks a lot like the bully porter i had before it.

aroma is nice. milk chocolate. crackers. touch of grain. toasted white bread. touch of cardboard? bit of alcohol. vanilla.

taste is nice. milk chocolate. almond. touch of vanilla. bit of coffee. bit of dark chocolate. toasted whole wheat bread. there's that touch of cardboard again, coming out around the edges - not enough to make me dislike it, but enough that i'm guessing this one is past its prime.

mouthfeel is good. medium carbonation level. medium body.

drinkability is pretty good. nice balance, interesting malt profile. i like the lighter chocolate/nut/vanilla thing that's going on, but the cardboard sneaking around the edges takes away a little. i can see the potential though, so i'll be looking for another of these to re-evaluate.
