Notes/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.

3.85/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz can into a dimpled mug.

Appearance: deep, rich brown hue, which lets no light through. Head is a thick finger of creamy tan foam with OK retention and not much in the way of lace.

Smell: slightly sweet malty aroma with a good chocolate character. It's got a nice roastiness, but not a big astringency, which I like. I'm a fan!

Taste: much roastier than the aroma with a little bit of burnt malt right up front. This subsides into a more balanced, but still quite roasty, porter profile. Bitterness is a little high, with hop character a little bit vegetal. Not bad; definitely robust.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and a decent creaminess.

Overall: I find this beer quite drinkable indeed. I wouldn't mind if it were available here on the West coast.

Serving type: can

3.65/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Classic dark chocolate color with mocha tan head. Poured into snifter, 2 finger head. Poor head retention/lacing qualities.

S: Light caramel, baker's chocolate, light cherry smoke. Weaker than expected even for such a light ABV, and it takes some time for it to warm and develop.

M: Good amount of bite immediately, medium carbonation, less bodied, but balanced with flavor. Semi-dry finish.

T/O: T: cinnamon macchiato, coffee ice cream finish, roasted grains, hazelnuts, orange bitter, white chocolate accents, balanced b/t sweet and roast. It makes a very good morning/breakfast beer.
