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.

22 oz bottle. Pours near black with a thin beige head. The aroma was roaster malts, chocolate and cocoa powder, earthy with some black coffee. The flavor is deep roasted malt, creamy chocolate, black coffee with some earthy hops and moderate bitterness to the finish. Nice easy drinking porter.

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.

12 oz can poured. Huge thanks to Eugene for picking me up a DC tick. Old to the shelf, but fresh to me. Pours a near black with an active tan fizz head. Robust toasty aroma. Flavor is chocolatel up front. Solid roasted character. Has a slight burnt feel to it. Hot finish. Toasty malt. Unique stoutish porter here. I enjoyed this.

I only purchased this at Stateline to get a DC tick, even though I feel like I have had DC beer before. Should have checked that date b/c this was BB 01/25/16. DAMNNNN!!!!! Stateline you need to rotate your beer. Very dark brown color with a brown head. Maybe a little staleness on the nose or I am biasing myself. Thick brown malts, earthy. Basically wet, dark earth malts. Flavor a little lighter with a light roast. Very low hops. Sweet end but not sugary. I would like to try it fresh.

Nice even porter. Thick enough to be filling, but not to the point of exhaustion. Nice cocoa taste and some bitter nibs. Can
