look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a dark brown color and a thick texture. There was a massive, tan-colored, long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: A nice aroma of chocolate, malt, and some light coffee notes.

T: Tasted of roasted malt, chocolate, a little coffee, a burnt quality, and hops in the finish. A very focused, well balanced flavor. No one ingredient is overpowering, allowing for a good drinking experience.

M: A fair amount of carbonation with a dry, bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Like Maine's other beers, King Titus is a well made and tasty beer. Very much drinkable.

Had on tap at the American craft beer fest, then again reviewed from bottle. Colour is black with generous lacing and film.

S- rich dark maltiness, caramel, dark hot chocolate/mocha, earthy and robust. Hops come through with a piny resiny level ontop of the rich treacle caramel. Smell also has done black licorice and rich foresty notes.

T- smooth dark chocolate, pine, and citrusy hops with grapefruit, salted caramel, coffee notes come forward but the beer as a whole is quite fruity and forward, cherries and toffee, some florals from the hops. It all comes together really nicely to yield a moderately bitter, mildly roasty, but deliciously complex porter.

M- quite a full porter, nice body, with a mild/moderate carbonation, bitter dark chocolate and smooth bitterness on the finish. Quite crisp, with a lingering toasty and pine character.

A full bodied and well hopped porter, with a great balance and depth of flavour. Assertive hop flavour blends well with the dark malt. Not much else to say than this is another really well put together beer, very drinkable with a satisfying and intriguing complexity. Nothing disappointing about this, outstanding hoppy porter.
