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.

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.

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours deep brown with a slight ruby tone and a creamy mocha head that settles to a firm layer and leaves some nice lacing.

S: Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, a bit earthy, and a hint of burnt toast.

T: Roasted malt, coffee, hint of chocolate, a little smokey burnt toast, earthy, dark fruit, and a little bready toffee sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Very solid porter. I wish the chocolate in the nose came through a little more in the taste.

12 oz bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a robust foamy tan head. Nose of chocolate and smooth roasted malt. Medium in body and smooth creamy mouth feel. Flavor is dark roasted malts with nice chocolate. Finishes bitter.

Not my favorite style but a certain winner amongst the choices available at HEB. My girl loves it. Light bodied but flavorful, coffee roast beer. Light mouth feel, inoffensive but full of robust flavors. Even if you don't drink coffee there's something to appreciate here. Balanced, tasteful malt profile and a dry finish. Good beer.

I didn't know a beer could taste like that, kind of like a zesty coffee soda. The only porter I have to compare it to is St. Arnolds Icon series Coffee porter, along with a Xocaveca stout by Stone which it is nothing like. Exceptionally clean finish.

A little on the light side for a porter, It makes it a little more smooth but lacks in flavor as a downside. It's also light on the ABV% as most porters are more than %5.
