4.48/5  rDev +8.2%

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.
