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.

Can:   Big chocolate roasty nose, somewhat sweet, also like a dark chocolate that is more bitter sweet.   A little dry and chalky.   Fairly robust.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Roasty finish, sweet, some dark chocolate notes.   Simple yet solid Porter!   Low hop bitterness.   Thanks Brad!

Can. Pours black with a thin mocha ring. The aroma is sweet malt, light bourbon, oak, and vanilla. The taste adds smoke, charred malt on the finish, marshmallow in the middle, and light chocolate up front. I'm pleasantly surprised by how good this is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz can at Marti and Ilde’s wedding in Maryland. Nice and dark with a good sense of bitterness. There’s a bit of cream thrown in to the mix. Very enjoyable and a great wedding too.

italianjohn (2357) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Black pour with a nice creamy layer of beige head and light sticky lacing .... aroma of mostly dark chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla and caramel malts ..... taste is of heavy dark chocolate, bitter roasted malts, light vanilla and caramel malts ..... has a nice stout mouthfeel and the chocolatey flavors are rich and silky/oily ..... definitely a lovely and very sessionable porter for the ABV, but drinks likes a medium to full bodied stout ..... finish is dusty and chocolatey ... loved it

Can. Pitch black with a thick solid tan head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt with a hint of smoke. Taste follows suit and adds light vanilla, coffee and soy sauce notes. Rich mouthfeel with strong carb for the style. Really good.
