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.

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. There’s a touch of dark coffee and roasted almond in the middle, then a mouth-watering very dark chocolate finish. It’s very round in the mouth and creamy, even though the dark chocolate taste is prevalent. This is excellent!

Darwenus (547) - 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. It’s 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 (1395) - 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 lovin’ it.

Lonick (781) - 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.

McNeillR (1135) - SCOTLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Opaque black, dirty sandy head. Light gravely smoke and ting of hop. Rounded hop tang throughout, although a bit thin a mouthfeel. Smoky dry tobacco and dusty choc. Picks of chewy pine burried in neat malt. Dry, bittered nicely finish. No bad.

Bottle, Black Friday Tasting
