BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Odell Brewing Company
Colorado, United States
odellbrewing.com

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

Availability: Year-round

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.

12 oz bottle poured into a Shaker pint, yields a dark beer with a medium head that fades quickly, leaving a lot of long lasting lacing.

At this cafe, the bottle was quite cold to start, so both the smell and flavor were muted. My overall impression is of smoky roasted malts. There's some bitterness.

This may seem contradictory, but this beer has a big flavor and yet is watery. I liked everything about the taste except the watery character, which I can't get past.

Pours a beautiful, large rocky tan head with a very dark black with red ruby hues when backlit.Smell is of roasty malt and hint of yeast character. Taste is instant balance of hop bitter, roast malt, and carmel sweetness. Easy to drink. Mouthfeel is good and stays with you. This is a solid American take on English porter. I will drink more of this during the coming Winter months.

L: Pours a pitch black color with a creamy white head that dissipates rather quickly, with some nice ring of lacing.

S: A roasted dark malt, with a few notes of smoke, a slight bit of chocolate. Very inviting.

T: Roasted dark malt, notes of smoke and some bittersweet chocolate. Slight bitterness. Slightly dank hops.

F: Creamy full body

O: I love this beer, a classic stout.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Look: dark but not quite opaque, tan head with some lacing

Smell: light, sweet, malty, roasted

Taste: has a nice roasted maltiness, followed up by a very nice coffee flavor that sticks around into the aftertaste, extremely faint hints of chocolate.

Feel: smooth and a bit creamy, not overly carbonated

Overall: A very well balanced beer that manages to be on the lighter side while not being watery. The coffee flavors stand out to me here and work well with the malts. This is an incredibly underrated beer and my favorite porter so far!

My second one gave me a better impression than the first. I bought it cold and drank the first bottle medium cold. Apparently it is more bitter when cold. Which is not good because it does not have the sweetest roasty base.
. I left it out of the fridge and drank one after work and it was not too bad. Good carbonation. I don't judge the head because I drink from the bottle. Fer shame.
