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.

Poured into a standard pint glass: color dark, near black, not even any brown or amber edges; head is tan, almost dark tan, fine and medium sized bubbles that present 1/2 inch thick then dissipate to a solid top with some nice lacing on the glass.

aroma is exceptional, very nice and aromatic, coffee, chocolate flavors dominate, some subtle grassy and earthy hop aromas are present.

taste is also very good, very forward in the sweeter flavors but also dry in the finish; sweeter flavors follow the aroma with chocolate and coffee forward; hops are earthy and grasy

mouthfeel is very pleasant, nice lingering flavors on the tongue and cheeks with the drying quality on the tongue

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.
