Beer Advent Calendar – Day 8: Cutthroat Porter presented by Billy Brew

To celebrate the Holiday Season, and have teamed up with beer bloggers around the country to host the first annual beer bloggers advent calendar. This is the season of sharing and we intend to share our love of beer with you. 31Bloggers Blogging – click here for the running list of beers/bloggers.

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.

Why I selected the Cutthroat Porter:

Odell dedicated this beer the Colorado state fish, the Cutthroat Trout. We love our beer and outdoors equally, and never hesitate to link the two.

Cutthroat Porter certainly meets the criteria for the porter style – dark, lighter bodied, coffee and chocolate flavors. But it’s got that little something extra that lifts it above competitors who merely “check the box”. It’s that intangible quality that Odell brings to all of its world class beers.

Cutthroat Porter goes down smooth and leaves you yearning for more. Wonderfully balanced and flavor rich, it satisfies your taste buds without delivering a knock out punch. You’re not gambling when you put down your money for this beer – it’s a sure thing.
