COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Penn Quarter Porter is our first in a line of draft-only limited-release beer, and itís a robust porter! In the way that The Public is on the line between a pale ale and an IPA, this is on the line between a porter and a stout - with chocolate notes and a dry, roasted finish.

JAXSON (526) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2013
From a can, thanks GT. Pours black with a rich, tight mocha head. Nose is fresh coffee, earthy, light hops. Flavor is bright and light, a pleasant roasted coffee, light roasted malts, and bright, tempered hops. Light in the mouth with medium carbonation. Seems very fresh and well put together. Neatly dances between two seemingly different styles.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2013 Bottle with Ray and Ryan. Pours black with thin mocha head. Notes of roasted malt, coffee, and dark fruit. I think this may have been infected because it was a bit tart. It wasnít bad but I donít see this noted in other reviews. I have a couple more bottles Iíll have to re-rate later. Re-rate - from a can. I definitely had an infected batch previously. Pours black with smallish tan head. Nose of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits. Medium body. Roast flavors dominate with some notes of hops. Pretty solid porter.

gripweed57 (589) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2013
22 ounce bottle. Dark brown, black color topped by a rocky tan head. Yeasty roasted malt aroma with light banana notes. Flavor is more banana; roasted malt with notes of smoke up front. Medium bodied with coffee-like maltiness and dry resiny hops. Finish is more chocolate and smoked malt. Brief dry finish. Not very complex, but somewhat unique.

Shared at RBWG. Pours a hazy brown with a tan head. Nose is roasted malt, dark chocolate, and some coffee bitterness. Flavor follows with some roast, some chocolate, some cocoa, and some coffee bitterness. Medium in body and very nice overall.

jkwood04 (3740) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 6, 2013
12oz can in a chalice. Pours very dark brown with a big, lacy, tan head. Aroma of a lot of roasted malts, a little chocolate and coffee, a little dough and some floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice amount of maltiness for a beer thatís only 5.5 percent. Average texture. A good porter.
