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.

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.

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 (1639) - 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.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2015
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.

Pours very dark. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and coffee. Taste similar, malty, coffee notes. Overall a very pleasing porter.

micmillon18 (37) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 24, 2015
12oz can poured into a pint glass. Aroma - Dirt, roasted malts, touch of coffee. A hint of bacon? Appearance - Two finger, chunky mocha head. Deepest, darkest black complexion. Taste - Roasted malt lends a distinct coffee and chocolate character. Bitterness, both from the aforementioned malt and hops, make a reserved but lasting appearance and adds some acidity on the finish. Palate - Medium bodied with a creamy, slightly slick aspect. Bone dry. Overall - Robust is the proper word for this quaff. A great American porter.

Can at SBWF. Dark brown with mid sized off white head. Chocolate and coffee aroma with some roasted notes. Mid sweet taste with coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. Mildly bitter finished. Nice porter.
