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.

Found a can for 3 dollars at the House of 1,000 beers. Into a pint glass.

A - For such a low ABV this beer sure is rich and thick. Very pitch black with no hue at the base and the head is excellent well of a 1/2 inch that settles to a thick lace ring. Very sticky.
S - Very rich porter with some chocolate malts, ashy roasts, herbal hops, and some dry yeasts.
T - Somewhat herbal, very smooth dry finish like woody. Taste of balanced chocolate malts and ashy roasty. Tasty.
M - Simple, sticky, slick and creamy. Medium bodied goes down smooth.

Overall a very well crafted porter. I would pick it up again.

Mouthfeel: heavy bodied, but not syrupy
Overall: Great winter beer. This is a porter I'll return to, preferably with a peppercorn steak.
