The Where and What: P. J. Whelihan's Pub in Haddonfield (really?), NJ / Haddon Pub Fest / Victory Smokin' Oats Porter.
The What Have You: OK, we started out Philly Beer Week across the bridge in Jersey, which is cheating a bit, but the Haddon Pub Fest was an official Philly Beer Week event. It was hot in Jersey, like 90+ degrees, and sunny, so beer was definitely needed. PJ's was featuring Victory beers and the very first I started out with was their "Smokin' Oats Porter": Color: Black as a coal digger's elbow. Smell: Roasty and toasty. This will be a nice session beer if only I knew the % abv. Not mealy, very smooth and easy going down. I would have it again.
