Penn Quarter Porter is our first in a line of draft-only limited-release beer, and its 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.

Draft at Klobys. Pours very dark opaque brown with a creamy light brown head. Tastes like very roasted, very burnt coffee beans and toast. Bitter with a dry feel. Lightly earthy. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells earthy and like booze and roasted grains.

From a can into a pint glass. Pours a ridiculously dark black! Coffee aroma all the way. Mouthfeel is heavy but not sticky. Taste is raisin, coffee, dark malt, some chalk and wood. A little too heavy for a porter but very good. I like the fact that it has a ton of flavor but not too much alcohol. Id buy it again sometime.

jake65 (3514) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Can, thanks to nimbleprop. Dark brown color akin to used motor oil, topped with a thick brown head. Spotty bits of lacing throughout. Nose is heavy roast, dark chocolate, faint espresso, and very light hops. Transitions perfectly to the taste. Heavy roast and cocoa dominate, but still very drinkable. With the exception of being a tad light in the carbonation, it has all of what I like in a robust porter. Good stuff!

BigDbrews (12) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Pours a beautiful dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is all roasted malt. Flavor is roasted malts and more roasted malts, almost smoky character. Very interesting, what I would have expected a traditional English porter to be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can from Crossroads Spirits. Pours black in color with a very small dark mocha colored head of foam. Aroma of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, some dark fruit notes, and a hint of vanilla. Taste of roasted coffee grounds, bitter dark chocolate, burnt toast, caramel, and an aftertaste of vanilla and wood.

Slubgob (320) - West Hartford, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Can into pint. Pours dark black, fairly thick and lingering coffee milk shake head. Lot of malt, dry chocolate in the nose. In the mouth nice balance of roasted malts with a bit of coffee, some bitterness, and finishing with a sweeter note. Long finish that bounces back and forth between sweet and roast, before settling in on a coffee note. Very drinkable and very enjoyable.

visionthing (5133) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 25, 2014
35,5cl can shared by Cunningham - thanks! Pours very dark, almost black, with a minimal beige head. Aroma of roasted malt with lots of coffee, some dark chocolate and hints of wooden smoke. Medium sweet with some lightly sour hints and a fairly mild bitterness. A bit thin, but decent stuff. (2014-02-14 - at Cunninghams place before RBNG-14)

Rune (12071) - Troms, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2014
Shared 355ml bottle. Tan-coloured head to a jet black body. Laces well. Sweet and mid-dry malty nose in a dark chocolate direction. Taste is mocha, almond, and roasted dark chocolate. Fine bodied. Smooth on the swallow. Nice, rather sweet though (at Cunninghams, Halden 14.02.2014).
