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.

An ok beer on tap at Industry Robinson. Aroma was decent. Chocolate and roasted malt. A little light, but ok. Pour was a dark brown with a thin tan film for a head. Taste was good. I don’t see any mention of smoke in this beer but it had a distinctive smoky character with chocolate and just a hint of coffee in the finish. Mild carbonation.

Hope I didn't get this mixed up with Boulevard tough kitty, looks pretty close. Tap IPH. Not as dark as expected. Some cloying smell in this and it carries over to the first taste, such an influence. Yes, some sticky smoothness. The cloying sweetness, wants to take over but I ignore it. A little difficult for a sweet stout, needs some civility. Tolerable for a beer.

Can: Just-almost-black with a small dark tan head. Dark, smoky chocolate and coffee aroma. Taste is rich, dark, chocolate malt, smoke and ash. A nice, dry, ashy bittering. Good body.....a solid, excellent porter.

Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can from shrubber85 poured into a glass. Black with small/mediumbeige head. Aroma is roasted malt, medium body, lower carbonation, and some small-bubble lacing. Taste is roasted malt and cocoa.

shrubber85 (11573) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 15, 2017
Can. Chocolate malt, ash, and dry orange peel aroma. Very dark brown with moderate brown head - nice lacing. Lightly sweet chocolate malt, and moderately bitter ash, hay, and orange peel flavor. Nice body. Very good.

Tap at Finn & Porter in the Embassy Suites Convention Center in D. C. Pours dark brown with a darkish tan head. Aroma of chocolate and not excessively toasty dark malt. Med + body. Flavor is very nice. Good chocolate and the malt is right where a porter should have it. This is what I like in the style, and do not frequently get. Good stuff.

phaleslu (10553) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2017
22 oz. bottle from seeswo - thanks, Chris! 2012 vintage. Uh, thanks? Pours a deep, dark, opaque coffee brown with a finger of dark tan head that settles into a lighter tan ring and a wee bit of film. Looks great. Showing oxidation, along with chocolate, light roast, earth, tobacco, toasted sugars, and coffee. Light-medium bodied, albeit thinned over time, with a dry, roasty mouthfeel. A little oxidized on the palate, with a hint of umami. Not bad for the age, actually. But would obviously be better fresh.

Beerdedone (3446) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Can. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and light coffee. Flavor of roasted malts, chocolate, roasted coffee a touch of caramel and had a dry roasted finish.

brownaler (700) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2016
Fresh roasted malt aroma. Rich coca body with a touch of milk. Finish is bubbly and clean.
