Very impressed with this big Porter. As promised, this is a robust, hop forward, complex offering with plenty of body and an outstanding tan-dark appearance with a head to boot.

Look - Upon first medium pour, very dense, one inch, mocha head. This eventually dissipated into a mismatch of small bubble sizes. The curtain of fine carb does its best to hang on the sides as the beer disappears.
Smell - Heavy to Medium roast, and light char are apparent in the smell. These two are mingling with very light sweetness and the most very faint vanilla aroma.
Taste - Balanced and bold porter with a fine mix of roast and hops.
Feel - Nice and smooth. Body is bold.

Overall - This is a quality crafted porter.

Easily one of my favorite porters. Has a bolder body than most porters and its silky smooth and almost no bitterness.

King Titus is a great American Porter. It is dark and thick and has a great mouth feel and is a great sipping beer.
