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.

Thanks to tastybeer for sharing this one evening. It might have been a bit past its prime but showed some promise. I would love to try a fresh bottle to see if it is better (as I suspect).

Aroma / Appearance - The fluid black base offers promise of a rich experience. A chocolately mocha head releases coffee, chocolate, and sweet hints. The evidence of problems comes in the form of a slightly bitter tang.

Flavor / Palate - Tartness permeates through the coffee. If it were intentional I’d say it works well but knowing it should not be there detracts from a balanced profile. Take that away and this would be a nice run of the mill local.

ScipioA (377) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 30, 2015
Good looking porter, it’s cola brown with a large tan head. Aromas are roasted malts, dark chocolate, and some alcohol. Delicious flavors of chocolate, some herbal hops, a little coffee. There’s some caramel sweetness to balance the roast notes. Soft and light mouthfeel with a frothy carbonation makes this very easy drinking.

thedm (5034) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 29, 2015
This draft brew from the brewery poured a head of foamy tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque black brown colored body and a fair lacing. The nice aroma was roasted malt toasted malt and chocolate. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering roasted malt aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of semi-sweet roasted malt toasted malt chocolate dark malt and hops. A wonderful best in class brew.

Steverus0 (222) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - APR 16, 2015
Love this caramel rich porter. Lovely black pour with light head. Aroma of rich brown sugar, mild hops and rich caramel malts with hints of coffee. Comes through with the same over the palate and just a hint of spice. High effervescence and heavy body make for a pleasing, lingering brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
