COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Penn Quarter Porter is our first in a line of draft-only limited-release beer, and it’s 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.

12oz can poured into a pint glass. Aroma - Dirt, roasted malts, touch of coffee. A hint of bacon? Appearance - Two finger, chunky mocha head. Deepest, darkest black complexion. Taste - Roasted malt lends a distinct coffee and chocolate character. Bitterness, both from the aforementioned malt and hops, make a reserved but lasting appearance and adds some acidity on the finish. Palate - Medium bodied with a creamy, slightly slick aspect. Bone dry. Overall - Robust is the proper word for this quaff. A great American porter.

kramer (5760) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Clear dark brown body with a small wispy light brown head. Nose is chocolaty and nicely hoppy with lots of citrus. The flavor is chocolaty with light roast and minimal bitterness. Nice chocolaty finish. Lighter bodied with soft carbonation. Nice Porter, a little lacking in body for a robust porter, but tasty.
