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.

Bottle from Total Wine Sterling. Pours back with a thin khaki head. Doesn’t leave much lacing. A bit of chocolate roast on the nose. The slight roast note on the tongue gives way very quickly to bitterness which in this style of beer I find a bit off putting.

Norfolk can. Opaque pour with a small, bubbly, team head. Nice aroma of coffee and sweet malt. The flavor drops the sweetness and brings in bitterness from cold coffee. Nice.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2013 This beer is widely available on tap & in can in my area, and I always find myself going back to it. That said, I go back to it because there aren’t that many good examples of porters in my area...this one could be a bit thicker. Very thin, kind of sour, but decent enough.

Can. Says limited edition for some reason. Roasted malty nose. Hints of toffee chocolate and espresso. Dry. Solid porter. Hopefully not limited in the 6 pack cans! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(22oz bottle) Pours an opaque black body with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, anise, dates, and graham cracker. Flavor of chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, bread, and coffee with a bitter finish.

Dark appearance with notes of chocolate to taste and roasted finish. Some good flavors in this porter.

Elwood (3176) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours black with a very large and lasting brown head. The nose has a mix of roasted malt, coffee, cocoa powder, and earth. The flavor follows suit with an unusual fruitiness arising as it warms. The bitterness seems a little rough and the coffee notes a bit stale. Too much burnt and mineral character as well. Medium bodied with plenty of softer carbonation leading to a medium finish.

On tap at ACBF 6/1/2013 Rich chocolate and roast with some caramel and a solid bit of earthy hops. Creamy silky mouthfeel. This is a fantastic porter.

Bomber. Malty, coffee aroma. Poured a dark brown with a khaki top. Taste of cocoa, coffee, roasted malts. Medium carbonation. Delicious!
