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.

Erzengel (7355) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2014
Thanks to my Secret Santa nimbleprop for this beer. Rating the rest from a cracked can which sadly didnít survive the long journey.
Beer in the glass is black with and intense toffee-caramel and roasted nose. The beer is not as intense as the smell. Hints of roasted malt, toffee and a nice sourness appears, making it highly drinkable. The end is slightly and well-balanced bitter, not too sweet and nicely roasted.
--> nice and easy-drinking porter. Could be a bit more intense as the nose promises. --> 12/13/11/12

BrettTaylor (730) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Poured from a can at 50F into a tall goblet. Pours a very dark brown with a light brown head, lots of lacing. Aroma - crisp malt, dark chocolate, and just a hint of coffee and roasted nuts. Taste - full, rich, dark chocolate suffuses this beer. Thereís a touch of dark coffee and roasted almond in the middle, then a mouth-watering very dark chocolate finish. Itís very round in the mouth and creamy, even though the dark chocolate taste is prevalent. This is excellent!

Darwenus (832) - Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Pours dark brown with a gigantic, creamy head. The aroma is strong, rich, dark chocolate on top of strong, rich, dark chocolate. The flavor is just more of that chocolate, and a little nutmeg. The malt is more smooth than roasty; more porter than stout, to my taste. Itís delicious, but so rich that it gets a little old by the end of the glass. This would be a great beer to share with someone as a dessert.

Can from HOTB. Pours a deep dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma of roasted coffee and malts. Some chocolate. Taste is medium to light bodied. Taste isn't overly roasty. Very well balanced. Medium carb.

This beer pours black with a mocha head, smells really roasty like a lot of coffee is in it, taste of chocolate and coffee along with malty notes. Great beer

An excellent porter. Dark and rich in chocolate and coffee flavor. A bit of licorice rounds out the flavor.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Black with a medium-sized tan head. Overly roasted, burnt flavor; light chocolate and coffee; astringent finish. Not loviní it.

Lonick (1143) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Did not get a great deal other than chocolate on the nose. Vanilla and chocolate on the palate, a bitterness in the middle but right on the end a green cooking apple sourness that just took it away from me.
