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.

I am not a big fan of the can beer. It was a little rough of the edges. I am porter fan but this had a little bit of a coating on the mouth. We were doing a tour of the east coast and this was kinda of a road block on the tour. DC beer that was to be the best of the batch, it was a little rough.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a mug. Pours pitch black with a nice brown head. Smells of coffee, chocolate, and very slight fruitiness. Tastes of slight berries with a very strong coffee. Beer is full bodied lighter carbonated but very drinkable. Overall, a very good beer.

A: dark, dark brown to black, nice giy edge head with significant lacing.

S: roasted grain notes and coffee, coming through more with warmth

T: dark roasted grains, some medium body coffee, just on the bitter side of a balance against sweetness. The middle taste I get a little oat flavor. The end taste is a bit of generic green (shrub-like) hops taste that lightly dries the mouth.

M: besides the light drying, which I like better than a hop-bomb ending in porters, the overall feel is just a tad weak. The taste does hit all parts of the mouth, though, so I'm between a notch higher and what I gave it.

O: I think to me it's one of the best porters I've had as far as enjoyment. Roasted malt characters backed by a light, dry bittering effect in the back, that's what I enjoy. This one is also right I the edge of being a stout, maybe that helps.
