On the dark end of the spectrum, Capitol City Brewing Co. offers the Prohibition Porter. This ale has a deep brown colour, almost black, with a light tan head. It looks quite a lot like cola. The aroma of cacao is dominant and there is also a rich, chocolatey flavour. There is a bit of bitterness lurking near the backdoor. Prohibition Porter is a very mild, drinkable dark beer. It is accessible, and has a nice roasty quality. I tend to prefer porters that are a touch sweeter initially, but this one works nonetheless. If you're in D.C., I think it's worth your time.
