On tap at the Thirsty Moose in Portsmouth NH.

Bold, dark look and smelled of chocolate, hops, and burnt smoke. Taste of chocolate upfront and some nice bitterness from the hops. Slick, smooth mouthfeel makes for one tasty porter. Again, Maine Beer Co. has outdone themselves. Really liked this porter.

A- Dark brown/black with a thin tan head. Some decent lacing left behind.

S- Coffee, roasted malts, chocolate/cocoa. Smell slightly underwhelming.

T- Dark chocolate, coffee, slightly bitter. A slightly smokey taste is also present. Slight alcohol taste. A great tasting porter.

M- Medium and smooth. Decent carbonation. Bitter and dry aftertaste. A slight alcohol burn on the way down but nothing big deal.

O- Second only to Founders from what I've tried thus far for Porters. Well done.

The beer is near black with a thick, soapy, beige collar. The aroma brings beautiful roast character and milk chocolates. Chocolate forward with moderate bitterness in the back. Smooth on the palate with a zesty kick from the hops. A solid example of the style. My primary complaint with Maine Beer Co. is the price. $7 per 500 mL is too much to pay for porters, IPAs, pale ales and the like.

More than a review, this is a discussion of the Maine Beer Company. These guys know what they're doing. King Titus is up there with Edmund Fitzgerald as far as smoothness and drinkability are concerned. This is truly an excellent porter.

Back to Maine Beer for a moment. I've never had a beer from them that has absolutely blown my mind with its flavor profile. But their beers are so well-balanced, it's almost criminal. If they brew it, it's gold. King Titus is no different.

A: Dark, black cherry/cola transparency, and leaves a fast-rising 2", burnt leather head. Lacing is very good
S: Burnt toffee, chocolate. Big on the chocolate.
T: Interesting use of Centennial and Columbus hops make this beer taste like Godiva's dark chocolate orange slices. The bitter is a nice compliment to the caramel notes, and combines to make something reminiscent of chicory.
M: The acidity of the hops leads towards a dry finish, spicy aftertaste. It is not a sryupy beer; almost refreshing sharp with a light and lingering sweetness, that would be a good choice of style to drink on warm Maine nights as cold winter days.
