On tap at the Thirsty Moose in Portsmouth NH.

Bold, dark look and smelled of chocolate, hops, and burnt smoke. Taste of chocolate upfront and some nice bitterness from the hops. Slick, smooth mouthfeel makes for one tasty porter. Again, Maine Beer Co. has outdone themselves. Really liked this porter.

While I'm new to appreciating beers, I've really taken to Maine Beer Company's brews. I picked this up tonight as it was the first time I had seen it at my preferred store. Bottled on 10/27/12.

Poured into a 22 oz. standard pilsner glass and the one finger head remained for a while. Aroma is a clean, with a noticeable malt and coffee combination. I love the chocolate flavor on initial tastes and the finish is incredibly clean. The ever so slight bitter hops almost fade away too quickly for my tastes.

Overall this is an incredible beer. I was expecting a heavier feeling upon drinking it similar to Mean Old Tom and other stouts and porters I've tried recently - but Titus left me appreciating it's lightness enough to wish I brought some more home.

Enjoyed on tap at Plan b in Simsbury, CT. Absolutely delicious porter. Pours very dark and with a tan-colored rocky head. Mouthfeel is full - bodied and rich, it is full from start to finish. Chocolate and toasted malt flavors dominate without tipping into stout territory. I haven't had anything from Maine Beer that disappointed, and this is no exception.

Bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Pours dark black with a nice 1 1/2 finger mocha/brown head that leaves a nice lacing.

S - Dark roasted malts with subtle hints of chocolate and coffee.

T - Hello delicious Porter! Roasted chocolate malt up front with caramel, coffee and hops through the middle and a really nice finish of bitterness and dry chocolate.

M - Medium body, creamy, nicely carbonated and very smooth.

O - One of the best porters I've had. Maine Beer Company is quickly becoming one of my favorite breweries and they nailed this one. Great balance of roast, chocolate and hops.
