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.

A - Dark brown, opaque, with tan head, moderate and rocky, with significant lacing.

S - Roasty notes, a touch of sugar, cocoa, a bit of burnt toast.

T - Primarily roasted grains, a bit of bitter coffee, a touch of minerality, and a strong bitter hit in the close.

M - A touch thin, significant drying in the close.

O - A porter focused on the roasted notes, char and coffee. A bit more bitter than I prefer - I like some sweeter malt notes that are not a focus of this porter - but a decent porter nevertheless.

Right down the middle of the style. Nothing special but very well made.

On tap at brewery. Taster served in plastic cup. Dark brown with tan head. Hard to get a sense of lacing or retention. Aroma is of roasted malts, dark chocolate, and coffee. Flavors are similar with light up-front sweetness and a bitter coffee finish from the hops. A little thin.

At first it seemed a good brew but then towards the end of a glass it seemed gritty, like coffee grounds were settling to the bottom. Indeed a residue was Left behind

An above average chocolaty and roasty porter. Very true to style. The dark chocolate and milk chocolate flavors mix well. That said, I have others in the style that I prefer.
