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.

Doofgoblin (423) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Sturdy porter and a snappy hat. Aroma is slightly underwhelming but the taste delivers with in your face roasted malt followed by faint notes of coffee and chocolate with a light body. Doesnít have that cloying sweetness that some porters have; however, itís not overly dry either. Very nice.

Pours very dark brown, almost black. Aromas of dark roasted malt and some chocolate. Flavor follows through to the taste. Finishes mostly dry, with slight residual sweetness. In balance and tasty.

$1.95 can from Wine Warehouse, CHO. Pours dark brown, nearly black, with a tiny quickly disappearing brown head. Smells of chocolate milk and coffee. Taste: First sip: interesting and different! Chocolate, nuts, roasted chestnuts. Bitter coffee finish. Extra point in taste for being different, but not a favorite.

floydslip (247) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Deep cola-colored beer with a medium foamy dark beige head. Bitter roasted nose of unsweetened cocoa, dark coffee, and a bit of smokiness. Flavor is rich, but milder than the aroma would indicate. Itís definitely more on the bitter side with burnt chocolate and coffee thatís evaporated in the pot most prominent. It could use a bit of sweetness to counter balance it, but overall a pretty good beer.

12oz can from Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors. Darkest brown with a lacy light beige head. The aroma is nice and rich, loads of molasses and anise with dark bakerís chocolate and roasty malts. The flavor has mild sweetness yielding to an earthy, chocolatey, bitter finish. Thick and slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Pretty solid beer.
