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

a great american robust porter on tap at the brewery. it pours a dark Hershey syrup color, plenty thick, with a half inch or so of creamy tan head. the nose is pretty hoppy for a porter, complimenting the very dark chocolate malts and burnt toast grain aroma. cocoa powder and toffee hints as well. the taste is all of this, but more bitter than even the nose could give a clue to. its hoppy and all, but most of the bitterness appears to be from the burnt barley here, and there is a touch of smoke too. creamy texture, fuller bodied, but still a little thin somehow, despite being so decadent, and a mellow but adequate carbonation level. visiting maine beer was a real treat, all the beers were exceptional, and king titus is one of the better porters ive had in a while, just expertly made.

Annoys me that you guys rate this so highly. It tastes like crap. It's almost as bad as Firestone Walker Reserve's Porter. Not sure what it is about porters that if they are not good I want to pour them out. But I'm hugely disappointed by this one. It's just the taste - the color, smell, mouthfeel is all fine. But unfortunately the taste it most important to me. Up front it's OK, like any decent porter, not great. But the aftertaste is just totally lackluster like dirty cardboard dipped in soda water.
