Our take on an American robust porter. Dark, thick, chewy, chocolaty, and of course, generously hopped.

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.

22 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a quarter of a finger of caramel/chocolate-colored head that almost completely covered the top of the beer in a think lacing of foam.

Aroma: Very strong aromas! Tons of roasted malt, dark chocolate, caramel, molasses.

Taste: Wow! Great flavors of roasted malt, imparting some subtle smoke and notes of toasted bread. There’s also strong notes of dark chocolate, brown sugar-like sweetness, and a touch of cinnamon, and coffee, but without any of the coffee-like bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Slightly chewy and smooth and creamy as hell as there is no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 7.5%, there is no alcohol present on the palate at all.

Overall: Wow, what a spectacular porter!! I love the strong flavors of roasted malt, caramel, dark chocolate and coffee. Such deliciously strong flavors all wrapped up into an extremely smooth quaff! Highly recommended.
