22 ounce beer shared at RBWG brought by GT2, thanks dor the share. Poured a dark brown color with aromas of light chocolate, roasted malt, earth, and some ash. Flavors were burnt chocolate, ash and earth. Decent porter overall, thanks for bringing my first DC tic.
March 22nd, 2015 - Another classy tasting here, with the DC Brau Penn Quarter Porter served out of a plastic hotel cup. Darker brown and with the thinnest of heads, it gives off a gorgeous scent of soy sauce, yam and cumin, and the enticing aroma of Japanese style "Yaki Imo." The flavor mirrors the aroma, both sweet and earthy with a deep savory-sweet blend. The aftertaste vitiates the beer's profile through, running both short and a little flat. But that is a marginal mark against an otherwise solid and deep flavored porter. Capa (3623) - DC, Washington DC, USA - JAN 12, 2018
Draught at the source. Dark with a tan head. Lightly roasted malt, some cocoa, a bit bitter on the sides. Full bodied. Light earth and roasty malt in the finish, which is dry. Nice. downender (9008) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2017
Can from Craft Beer Cellar, Washington DC. Near black in colour, with a thin, beige, head. Plain chocolate, toasty malts, a bit thin in the mouth upfront, but more complexity came through in the dryish finish. Enjoyable. Jabah (562) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2017
6-pack in cans from Total Wine & More/Vienna, VA. Was hoping on more of a maltier version of the style. Some smokiness here. Super dark brown appearance with a mocha head. Texture is is ok...but could be creamier. Decent beer but kind of forgettable. This was actually my favorite so far out of the 5 or 6 samples from this brewery.

An ok beer on tap at Industry Robinson. Aroma was decent. Chocolate and roasted malt. A little light, but ok. Pour was a dark brown with a thin tan film for a head. Taste was good. I don’t see any mention of smoke in this beer but it had a distinctive smoky character with chocolate and just a hint of coffee in the finish. Mild carbonation.

Hope I didn't get this mixed up with Boulevard tough kitty, looks pretty close. Tap IPH. Not as dark as expected. Some cloying smell in this and it carries over to the first taste, such an influence. Yes, some sticky smoothness. The cloying sweetness, wants to take over but I ignore it. A little difficult for a sweet stout, needs some civility. Tolerable for a beer. jeremeh (25) - Yukon, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 17, 2017

Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can from shrubber85 poured into a glass. Black with small/mediumbeige head. Aroma is roasted malt, medium body, lower carbonation, and some small-bubble lacing. Taste is roasted malt and cocoa. shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 15, 2017
Can. Chocolate malt, ash, and dry orange peel aroma. Very dark brown with moderate brown head - nice lacing. Lightly sweet chocolate malt, and moderately bitter ash, hay, and orange peel flavor. Nice body. Very good.
