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.

12 oz can in a trade, thanks Devin. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, and a nice roasty malt. Flavors are chocolate, coffee, light smoke, and a great roasty malt. Great beer. Really loving all the dc brau beers Iíve had so far.

Flavor is chocolatel up front. Solid roasted character. Has a slight burnt feel to it. Hot finish. Toasty malt. Unique stoutish porter here. I enjoyed this.

I only purchased this at Stateline to get a DC tick, even though I feel like I have had DC beer before. Should have checked that date b/c this was BB 01/25/16. DAMNNNN!!!!! Stateline you need to rotate your beer. Very dark brown color with a brown head. Maybe a little staleness on the nose or I am biasing myself. Thick brown malts, earthy. Basically wet, dark earth malts. Flavor a little lighter with a light roast. Very low hops. Sweet end but not sugary. I would like to try it fresh.

Nice even porter. Thick enough to be filling, but not to the point of exhaustion. Nice cocoa taste and some bitter nibs. Can

Can thanks to Sarah! Pours black with a brown head that dissipates it the edges. Aroma has lots of roasted malts with some dark grains and a bit of chocolate underlying. Flavor has lots of roasted malts with dark grains and a bit of chocolate backing.

Pours a black brown color with a foamy light brown head that quickly melts away to a ring. Notes of dark chocolate, roasted nuts, stale trail mix.

guzzler67 (1650) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2016
Totally dark with an average size mocha colored head that left good lacing. Roasted malt aroma with traces of molasses and chicory. Flavors fall within the comfort zone of well made porters, with the bitterness of the hops pairing up nicely with the roasted, mildly sweet malts. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel. Long lasting finish.

Pours pitch black and opaque with a two finger mocha head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Good retention, taking a while to settle and leaving streaks of soapy lacing on the way down. Slightly smokey, deeply roasted dark malt aroma thatís countered by sweeter, dessert-like lighter malt notes. Robust with hints of liquid smoke, burnt toast, dark chocolate and gourmet coffee bean followed by bakerís chocolate, caramel, toffee and fudge. Well balanced aroma with the sweeter notes standing out a bit more as it warms. Smells good but nothing really stands out or elevates it above slightly better than average. Lighter body than expected with tight carbonation and a nearly acrid, roasted dark malt flavor that lingers over the sweeter notes into a bone dry finish. Strong burnt malt/overly roasted robust coffee grinds along with some charcoal, oatmeal and bitter dark chocolate. Not overwhelmingly dry/overly roasted, however, with prominent sweet malt backbone. These sweeter notes really stand out as it warms with some toffee, caramel, light chocolate and alcohol. Not nearly as complex as the nose suggests and the sweeter, dessert-like notes are severely muted. Decently drinkable but lacks balance and complexity.
