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.

Thick black brown in color with a sturdy chocolatey tan head that leaves an impressive cascading lace behind. The aroma brings a definite milk chocolate with a hint of orange citrus wheat. Very nice but not too strong. The flavor follows with more bitter coffee blended with the chocolate. There's arguably some lemon edges and touches of malt sweetness. It's very tasty and leaves clear ashy charcoal at the finish. The feel is velvety with some chalky sensation and although it is a medium bodied brew it has a slightly aqueous quality as well. Overall this an easy drinking and very likable porter.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- a really deep dark brown. About one finger of fizzy mocha head that hangs out a while a leave nice lacing.

S- roast malt dominates and a little alcohol lives in the background

T- big roast malt flavor. A little but of coffee and some hop bitterness

M- a bit thin and fizzy. Not bad but not the best.

O- a solid but not outstanding porter. Would definitely drink it again.
