Odell Brewing Co. - Cutthroat Porter 4.8%
Taste: More flavour than a lot of stronger porters that I've had recently. More than a hint of wholemeal bread crust and smokey memories. If I was drinking this in the winter in a London Pub, wrapped up in a heavy coat, I would be very happy. As it is, I'm sat in my lounge and it's quite a pleasant temperature, so it's not doing all that it could.
Appearance: Pleasing fish illustration on the label. As for the liquid, it's a slowly effervescing oil pit.
Would you buy 2? I might opt for a stronger porter. Odell has better to offer.
Would you buy 4? Hmmm, I might try that one that tasted like Rum and Rasins again. God, that was good.
Rating (out of 7): 4**** It's pretty nice.
