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.

Had a nitro pint with dinner at the Tap House in Steamboat Springs yesterday for the HH price of $3.00.

Beer poured a translucent black with a beautiful head from the nitro tap.

Nose was chocolate with some coffee.

First couple of sips were fantastic with a huge chocolate and coffee profile from the nitro pull. The flavors were less intense with subsequent sips.

Mouthfeel was initially extremely smooth from the nitro pull. Subsequent sips found that it is a lighter abv porter lacking a full body.

Overall this was an enjoyable beer. Not sure if the age of the keg had something to do with the fading quality of my pint. Nonetheless it was good.

thank you kindly to pokesbeerdude for sending this generous extra my way! enjoyed from my hill farmstead tulipy wine glass.

a - brew poured a pewter black with almost 3 fingers of foamy mocha cream colored head. as the head dissipated there was big chunks of lacing on the glass.

s - really nice blend of powdered chocolate and char that gives the beer a vanilla vibe too. robust roastiness too.

t - wow, that's huge...and robust. black malts. powder chocolate. char. roast. a bit intense.

m - char. burntness. fairly full bodied for a porter, but overall light to medium bodied. tingles in my mouth. fairly aggressive.

o - overall this is a big porter. extremely full robust flavor profile. i like my porters to be a bit more subdued.

Always liked this beer, but its only been the past summer where I have really begun appreciating the english style porters and now I definitely love this beer.

Pours dark, black in the center and brown towards the edges. A nice off white head and good lacing. Aroma is rich and roasty; dark chocolate, light roast coffee, a little bready. Flavor is pretty similar with a dominating roast throughout that is continually evolving; starts of with the dark chocolates with some coffee hiding out underneath, but things progress the flavor tend to trade spots and a nice light roasted coffee grinds takes the forefront with the dark chocolate hiding out underneath. A touch bready I suppose, a touch of brown sugar too. The roast can provide a touch of mild bitterness to it as well. A medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a fantastic porter here. With my newfound appreciation for english porters this one is sitting right towards the top of my favorite porter list.

Poured a nice dark color with a nice thick creamy head.

Date on the bottle was July so little past prime but I wasn't disappointed. Not much on the nose, but the taste was classic -chocolate roasty. They hit the taste of what I think a porter should be like 100%. Great lacing and great head retention.

Mouth feel is okay.

If I could get this more often I would buy it all the time, but sadly Odell is not in Texas yet. Hopefully that will change.
