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.

Super nice porter. Overall just solid. Think of what you want from a porter, and this guy has it. There’s nothing here that will bring out attention, but nothing that will warrant a demerit either. Good stuff.

adnielsen (9417) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle @ home, via rotbox. Pours a very deep brown appearance with a lasting dark brown head. The aroma has a lot of roast, some smoke, coffee, chocolate, and lots of earth. Moderate light sweetness and moderate bitterness. Medium full body. Roasty chocolate flavor with a hint of fruitiness on the back end. A little bit of burnt sugar / caramel. Not all that bad.

In the can it had a tinny and smokey taste that a lot of Porters are incorporating lately. Wasn't blown away and found it very one dimensional ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
