TheEnemy (562) - Chicago, USA - FEB 25, 2012
On tap at the brewpub, notes from Dec 29 2011

Pours dark brown/black with a nice little tan creamy head on top of it. Solid aroma of roasty dark malts, notes of chocolate, a little bit of toffee in there, and a little bit of hop spice. Flavor: starts out tasting like toffee and sweet dark chocolate, then gradually gets drier as it sits on the tongue; first to a oatmeal-biscuit grain then to a mildly astringent crunchy dark porter. Surprisingly lively palate with medium-thin body & mouthfeel and a crunchy dark-grain and mild hop spice aftertaste. While it’s not an overpowering example of a porter, I’d never guess it was a second-run beer if I hadn’t been told.

On cask, same session:
Same basic color and general appearance as the tap version from the head down, but with much larger and more foamy/frothy head. Aroma is a little nuttier, less sweet, not as much toffee on the nose. Flavor comes through quite a bit weaker than the tap version; this is more of what I expected a second-run beer to taste like. Palate is flat and a little watery. Much prefer the tap version, sacrilege though that may be to "real ale" fans.

3.7 for the tap version, 3.3 for the cask version, works out to about a 3.5 overall.

BLADT (590) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2014
On tap. Dark, oily black in glass. Thin head. Lots of toasted malt aromas. Some faint field hops. Dark bread flavors. Hint of smoke. Dry. Finishes bitter. Overall, a nice porter with a head to place, but nice grain profile.

HighWine (951) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Tap flight at the brewpub. Darker-than-cola brown color with a well laced beige head. Aroma is dark roast that reminds me of Italian coffee beans or toasted rye seed (as far as I know neither coffee nor rye is used in this beer). TAste is similar with considerable roast and what I would swear is rye spiciness. Clean finish with a flavor profile bigger than the name indicates. Very drinkable anytime.

Quite liked this beer .. . pours a deep brown .. mild foam, lacing is quite good .. . mmm, spot on london .. . very tasty, and impressive seeing this is a second runnings beer .. . . One particle of unobtainium has a nuclear reaction with the flux capacitor - carry the ’2’ - changing its atomic isotoner into a radioactive spider. Fuck you, Science!

This poured a dark brown color with a beige head. Aroma was light ot medium roasted malts, some dark candy sugar, and light brown sugar. Flavor was a bit bland and water, althoguh refined and well put together. Would make a pretty decent session porter.
