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.

12 oz bottle. 4.8% abv.

Very dark mahogany color, thin tan head leaves a bit of oily lacing behind it.
The sweet, dark roasted malts dominate this one..with some bitter chocolate and coffee, and a little dark chocolate also. The body is simply too thin to carry the flavors effectively. It goes down alright, but the lack of anything unique and the weak body would probably discourage me from drinking this on any regular basis.

We sampled this one at the Odell Taproom with some friends, a few Saturdays ago. Not much to distinguis this one from the regular tap version. Poured a nice dark brown/black color, with a creamy beige head. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malt and light coffee. On the palate, medium bodied and hollow tasting, with flavor s of dark chocolate, roasted malt and cocoa.

Poured this 12 oz. brown bottle into a Samuel Smith tulip glass. Dated best by 070907. The body was dark brown/cola colored and free of sediment. The head lingered and was an off-white color.

Smell was cocoa powder and ground coffee. Pleasantly acidic aroma.

Taste was tart/tangy. Roasted malts, mildly burnt toast. Bittering aftertaste. Nicely balanced elements.

Mouthfeel was very carbonated and medium in body. A bit too much for my idea of a fine porter.

Sampled from 12 oz. bottle.

Large light brown head, well carbonated. Color is very dark brown, almost black. Aroma is chocolatey sweet and roasty. Flavor is coffee and chocolate throughout. Like a bitter vanilla latte (says A). Medium body. Aftertaste is sweet, chocolatey. Alcohol slightly noticeable towards finish as it warms.

This is not a bad tasting beer for some beers lovers but this is not not a porter with great qualities.

I poured this porter into a nice little chalice. This is not a black black porter. Cutthroat is dark but a little thin texture, which is expected in a porter, but also in color. Looking down I can see a lot of brown, darker brown. The head was a little soft even after a pretty hard pour.

The aromas were exceedingly average.

The taste is good. It's not that sweet and I personally like sweet so I compromise and gave it a 3 average. Cut Throat is heavy on coffee with a bakers chocolate. A little malty. A little sweet, but weighs more on the bitters. Could be a great taste for the dry side beer lovers. Just not me so I rate the taste as having good quality, but a 4 for me.

The texture is a little too fizzy my preference. I won't compromise. I find it it somewhat hard to swallow. LOW MARKS!

This porter is built for some wonderful Australian electronic music. I would prefer LAWRENCE ENGLISH "KIRI NO OTO"

[Best served in a Nonic Pint glass]

The pour was a murky dark brown with a large (2-3 finger) frothy light brown head that to some extent lasted throughout and produced some really nice spotty lacing.

The aroma was kind of mild of a roasted dark bread malt and an earthy yeast with notes of chocolate, coffee and just a bit of toffee.

The taste was mildly sweet and malty with a slight toffee note in the beginning with a taste progressing into a slight bitter sweet roasty flavor with a noticeable infusion of chocolate and a moderate coffee presence at the end. The flavor lasted only a short while with the chocolate coffee flavor fading fast.

Mouthfeel was just about medium in body and smooth and creamy in texture with a nice soft carbonation.

Overall a slightly passive tasting Porter, with that being said it is still quite delightful to drink.
