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.

Brought back from Denver by a very good friend. Poured into a HF glass at about 40 degrees and let to warm throughout.

A: Dark brown, light tan head, 1 finger, some retention/lacing

S: Wow, quite aromatic coffee and dark chocolate with roasty malts. Very nice!

T: Coffee and chocolate with bitter malts are quite nice even when served cold. Even better when it warms.

M: Medium body, wet throughout the taste but a little dry on the finish, carbonation is medium and the beer on the whole is pretty smooth.

O: I'm a big fan of this porter. Reminds me a lot of Edmund Fitzgerald, might even be better. Doesn't try to do anything special, but really nails exactly what a porter should be. Love it!

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into an oversized wineglass. Best by 051213 on label. Purchased as a single by my brother Greg for $1.99.

A: Black with 1-2 finger beige colored rocky head with good retention and plenty of lacing.

S: Big chocolate and roast aromas meet dark maltiness with a little stone fruit flavor along with raisin, caramel, and toffee. Hoppiness is low-medium for the style with some herbal hoppiness in there.

T: Great classic porter flavor that comes down slightly more on the sweet side with chocolate, black coffee, and roast meeting delicious light caramel and herbal hoppiness. Dark chocolate is the strongest flavor with dark maltiness and roast playing strong supporting roles.

M: Smooth and silky with excellent drinkability, medium body and low carbonation.

O: A superb AMerican porter which serves both your sweet tooth and appetite for roast. A great classic American porter.
