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, courtesy of Travlr, who brought it to NZ with him for a tasting session with Jimthechap and I, thanks a million! This is laptop black with a thin russet head, and a very stimulating aroma fo chocolates, roast malts, berries and allspice. The flavours follow the same ingredients, with the addition of hazelnuts, ashes and butter. Very buttery feel, more than many milk stouts. Tremendous porter. I love it and I will forever keep an eye on for its presence anywhere.

My grateful thanks to Travlr for dragging this across the earth for me and Cantabrian. It appears inky-black in colour with a robust mocha head. What is that smell? It seems like perfumey jasmine with char, cinnamon, cardamom, vanilla, redwood chips, currants, dates, muscatel sultanas... Wow. The flavours are just what it says on the label: robust with an immediate foamy mouthfeel which subsides and becomes bitter, crispish and has lengthy fruitiness. Wow. Landmark beer.

Very dark and very thick pour. Big froathy head that is golden brown. Aroma of chocolate and coffee and the taste follows through with the same. Robust is a good description.

Foxbush (1283) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2013
12 oz can. This was gift while on the bay. The porter poured a deep black with a large tan frothy head. The head dissipated to a small collar with modest lacing. Coffee and chocolate attack your sense of smell. The taste of roasted malt and coffee dominate your taste buds. An excellent porter a full array of favors of a porter. The medium body beer had average carbonation. The finish was of a sweet burnt malt.

Can shared by jayhawk73. Thanks Jeff. The beer appears dark coffee brown with a quarter inch of oily tan head. The aroma brings dark roast, malt, coffee, chocolate. Smells nice. Great flavor. What a solid beer. Medium bodied with appropriate carbonation. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Total Wine Sterling. Pours back with a thin khaki head. Doesnít 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 arenít that many good examples of porters in my area...this one could be a bit thicker. Very thin, kind of sour, but decent enough.
