DC Brau Penn Quarter Porter

What a day, what a day. I’m in the middle of end of quarter and I’m already exhausted. I can’t even say that today was all that bad, especially since I managed to get home at a decent hour. I know next week is going to be exceptionally challenging and I will be getting home late every night, so I guess I should appreciate it while I can. Anyways, I had this brew a week ago. Let’s see how I liked it.

ABV: 5.5%

Style: American Porter

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Penn Quarter Porter was our first in a line of draft and 22oz bomber limited-release beers, and it’s a robust porter! Now available in Cans! 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.”

Random: I’m about halfway through season 1 of “Carnivale” and I still can’t figure out if I like it.

This brew poured with a finger and a half of dark tan head that was very slow to dissipate. It left some lacing on the glass. The body was a dark brown with no visible carbonation due to the color. The nose had notes of milk chocolate with a touch of licorice. It was really fragrant and pleasant. The taste was even better. I got milk chocolate and cocoa powder, and then a marked nuttiness came through as well. After it warmed, there was also some ash with a slight herbal characteristic to it. The body was medium thickness with medium carbonation present. It had a quick finish with chocolate. This was a really solid beer that I thoroughly enjoyed drinking and I would definitely have again. If you see one on the shelves, definitely pick it up.
