Thanks to Cyclone8 for sending this one! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 16.9 oz bottle into a Cigar City snifter.

A: Very, very dark brown with a thin tan head. Nearly opaque with fairly low visible carbonation. 3.5/5

S: Chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Hints of leather add to the richness. Nice aroma, though not particularly complex. 15/20

T: Bitter dark cacao, roasted malty bittersweetness, tobacco, chocolate, less coffee, and some dark fruit (mostly raisins). The roasted malt and bitter cacao last into the hang. 36/45

M: The body is a bit on the thin side for my tastes in this style. Low alcohol presence, and good carbonation sensation. 8/10

O: Good flavors that are very well-integrated. It isn't particularly full-bodied, but coupled with the restrained ABV it's an easy drink. A tasty porter for sure, not world-class. Recommended if you find it around for sure. 15.5/20

Estimated final score: 3.92

16.9oz (~500mL) bottle from benbking (thanks!). Bottled 2/25/14. Served in a goblet.

Pours a chestnut hued, deep, dark brown with a huge three and a half fingers of pale tan head. A nice cap remains and can be rejuvinated at any point with a quick swirl. Large sheets of chunky lace remain on the glass.

Aroma is slightly reminiscent of an America black ale with plenty of roasty malts and a piney hop presence. Also chocolate, milk, mild coffee and caramel.

A delicious smooth blend of flavors. Chocolate, mildly charred malts, subtle pine, light roast creamed coffee, sweet milky lactose, burnt caramel, toast, brown sugar, a faint earthy, herbal note and only an ocassional whisper of alcohol. Super smooth and easy drinking.

Luxuriously creamy, medium heavy feel with supple carbonation. Rich cocoa, roast and some bittering hops linger in the aftertaste.

Even at near six months old (with a note on the bottle indicating this should be consumed fresh) King Titus delivers a truly outstanding porter experience. Definitely a top three for me within the style and highly recommended.
