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: Beautiful. Thick, chunky off-white head. Pours black, with dark ruby highlights. Head sticks around right till the end. Little bit of lacing clinging to the glass.

S: Roast coffee, with a creamy kind of sweetness. Little bit of dark chocolate. A little too sharp for my liking, but still inviting.

T: Roasty and bitter. A bit of a smokey quality that lingers even after swallowing.

M: Much thinner than something like an Imperial Stout, but not quit aqueous. Moderate-high carbonation. Lots of bubbles. Really easy drinking.

O: A porter for the stout lover. This beer is perfect for those times that a stout might be a bit much, but you still want that roasty stout flavor. I love grabbing this one when I want a beer with dinner.

Poured from bottle very dark brown with a slightly tan 1 finger head. Can pick up hints of good roast coffee smell. Head dissipates relatively quickly to a thin ring that has pretty good lacing in the glass. Medium carbonation. Has a medium-heavy mouthfeel, that sticks with you for a while like a good stout should. I get a slight bitter chocolate on the front with a nice semi-dry roasted coffee on the back. Very nice example of an American porter that most stout lovers will enjoy.

Odell Cutthroat Porter pours a pitch black color with a long lasting and lacing head. There is a nice roasted aroma, lots of coffee aromas as well. The taste is very robust, strong and creamy roasted malts, with good hints of coffee and chocolate. Full body, full flavors. Overall a world class porter, fantastic flavors, one of the best out there.
