BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Odell Brewing Company
Colorado, United States

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.

Aroma – light, roasted malt - lasts
Head average (Maximum 2.5 cm, aggressive pour), light brown, creamy with rocks, diminishing to a three mm ring and frothy partial layer
Lacing fair – drag marks from ring, mostly tiny bubbles with some larger
Body – dark brown, opaque
Flavor – roasted malt predominates but not overpowers. Hint of chocolate. No hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl.

Bottle, poured into a tulip glass

L- Deep, dark brown with a light brown head, head dissipates quickly but leaves plenty of nice lacing around the glass
S- Black currant, mocha, chocolate, nutty
T- Dark roasted coffee, very light dark chocolate, toasty. Nice roasted malts.
F- Light for a porter. Also some acidity and light syrup in it as well.
O- It's a good beer! Satisfied with it at 8.99 for a six pack. Not the best porter I've ever had, especially compared to the Taddy Porter, but still worth a try.

A dark Ruby/Brown in color with a thin tan head. Aromas of fresh roasted coffee beans, caramel and milk chocolate, wow! Taste begins with some dark chocolate, then toasted grain. Next is smokey scotch. The finish is vanilla and a hint of earthy hops. Mouthfeel is good. Overall an excellent Porter. The aroma is amazing.
