BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

Boy, oh boy. Try as I might, I can't get passed how flavorless this porter is. What stands out the most is how clean and refreshing the water is. Not exactly the impression a porter should give.
The smell, if you concentrate really, really hard at it, is a faint combination of roasted malts, burnt sugar and chocolate. It tastes of water, hops, water, sugar and water.
It's sessionable alright. Purely because it bears little resemblance to a porter. Disappointed with this one.

It pours dark with a light tan head, almost white. The smell is of dark roasted coffee, no chocolate presence. Feels very lite, almost watery. Hoping it would be a little bit more robust. The taste is completely lacking chocolate, not even a hint. It leaves the after taste of dark roasted coffee and water. Overall, a little disappointed, not sure why this one is rated so high.

07/10/07- Purcahsed at "The Liquor Store", in Jackson Hole, WY.

Presentation- 12oz bottle with a best by date imprinted on the lower side of the label. Poured into a standard pint glass.

Appearance- Deep brown in color approaching black. One inch head upon the pour and leaves a nice ring of creamy foam on the finish. Off white in color with lace patches here and there.

Smell- Very deep roasted malt. Smells like a tad burnt as well. Maybe a whiff of bitterness from the hops to come.

Taste- Hopes vanished after the first sip of being a tasty beer. Very watery. Best way to describe this beer is carbonated water with a bit of super roasted malt and a dash of liquid smoke. Some bitter hops to back it up, but just not flavorful at all.

Mouthfeel- As stated above. Carbonated water carbonation and super thin.

Drinkability- I'll pass on this one if I ever see it again.

I read a few reviews before getting this one.
It feels like I'm getting a watered down version of what most people are tasting.
Very thin mouth feel and almost no flavor. Nose is also weak.
Could it be a bad batch?

On tap at Barley’s. Some floral and citrus hops with roasted malts. Vary dark brown to black. Full, lasting, tan head, with good lace. Light roast flavor. Little bitterness. Fruity. Pretty thin. I think this is supposed to be a robust porter. Somthing is wrong. I may re-rate some day.

A - Pours a dark reddish brown. The lace does not stick for very long and the head dissipates quickly.

S - Smells like chocolate. A slight copper hint to it.

T - The taste of this beer is chocolatey. Slightly roasty but the taste falls quickly.

M - The body is light and carbonation seems to be slight or almost unnoticeable.

O - A light crisp beer. Something I would not really purchase again but an average porter.
