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.

Can, shared by Cunningham. Very dark brown in color, topped by a dense finger thick light tan head. The aroma has lots of licorice and molasses, as well as roasted malts and some coffee. Quite sweet on the palate, with molasses and some licorice. A nice bitterness too, lasting for a long time. Full body and soft carbonation. Lasting finish. A really pleasant one, could easily drink more of this. 140214

Really enjoying the DC Brau brews I recently got from a trade - thanks, Andy. Pours a dark, translucent brown, with a medium light brown head. Enticing aroma of cherries and roasted barley. Tastes great, plenty of interesting flavor while still smooth and relatively light for the style.

Can thanks to Bytmesis for my DC tick. poured into a snifter. HUGE chocolate nose initially that kinda fades in a minute or so revealing some grassy hop presence. moderate brown head that laces nicely. dark brown to black in color. Initially a full mouhtfeel with flavors of chocolate, deep, rich, dark chocolate. WOW. Very solid and full for 5.5%. Thick, viscous and not too sweet. slightly bitter in the finish from roastiness and helps dry it out. this is one of the damn best porters I have had in a while! Glad I got this for my DC tick!

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

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 (534) - 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.
