King Titus Porter

Beer Review #181

Welcome back to another craft beer review. Today I'm tasting King Titus Porter from Maine Beer Company. This dark, robust porter is named after Titus, the silverback gorilla studied by Dian Fossey and benefits the wildlife fund that bears her name. 

This 7.5% ABV porter pours opaque black with a substantial, but quickly subsiding three-finger head of dark khaki foam. 

The aroma folds expected elements of  coffee and bakers chocolate into hints of vinous, floral hoppy goodness. The taste follows suit, however the nature of the hops move forward in the mix creating a surprisingly bitter beer. Wheat and oats in the grain bill round out the medium body with a slight creaminess. Watch the video below for the whole story on this beer.
