First had it a 07 DLD. It is the 2nd running’s of the Dark Lord. Like a Dark Lord Porter or something, right? Very drinkable with toasted malts and cofee along with the FFF hops, it is very drinkable. I wish I could have some more please.

On tap on premise. Muddy black pour with tan head. Aroma was roasted malt, some sweetness, and hops. Had a sweet creamy taste with a little bit of the roasted malts coming out. Knowing it as a second run, I tried to not compare it to DL, but I did notice it was much lighter on the palate.

Draught at the pub. Opaque dark brown. Foamy, creamy, light tan head, big bubbly lacing. Roasty malt aroma with evident hops. Very roasty with some floral hops in the finish. Bitter coffe roast evident. Light bodied and very drinkable.

On tap at DLD ’09. Pours a very dark brown body with a big, two-finger width, brown, fluffy and creamy head that dissipates slowly leaving an abundance of lacing. Aroma is surprisingly citrus. I was not expecting this in a porter. It smells like the Dreadnaught. Lots of fruity, juicy pineapples and oranges, and even some melon-peach. Some light roasts and cocoa powder come in as it warms. Flavor is pretty solid with more of the surprising citrus explosion as well as a dark roasty bitterness. Definitely has my kind of porter taste to it with lots of the standard FFF juicy, fruity hop taste. Some cocoa powder in the finish and a big, long-lasting roast flavor while remaining very hoppy and citrusy. The palate was the only thing that really irked me about this beer. It was light and watery and really dropped off the tongue instantaneously. Overall, a very solid beer all-around, but the palate really bothered me. I’m not sure if all second running beers are like this, but after tasting this and the Omeganaught, it just may be a consequence of using spent grains. Despite that, I love the concept of second runnings and look forward to trying more examples in the future.

Poured draft at the brewpub in an imperial pint (Munster, IN). Pours an incredibly dark roasted brown with black notes, and pretty murky. Moderate light tannish head that laces, dies to a small amount. Aromas are echo Dark Lord a bit, but push a touch more chocolate than the coffee bomb it is. A bit sweet and creamy, with some light roasted notes. Nice. Initial is lighter in body, nice coffe pushes in, light, yet some decent flavors. Roast, chocolate, coffee. Decent. Light bodied, a touch too light / watery. Ok. Has some notes oor flashes of goodness. Finish has light roast and bitterness, a bit watery. Cheers!

Draft @ DLD 09: Pours a dark black with a small tan head. Big-ass hoppy nose with some roasted malt and dark bakers chocolate notes to add. Pretty thin on the palate...flavor started with a bit of roasted malts and chocolate and finished on a typical FFF’s hop kick. Good stuff, though I wouldn’t seek it out.

Tap at DLD. I dont like these second runnings beers. Thin and watery. Just is weird. I do smell the chocolate and hops. but when it comes time to taste it everything falls short. Smart business move to make these beer, but not so good IMO.

Big black pour with ran head. Chocolatey, hoppy aroma. Flavor is awesome three floyds hops and great chocolatey goodness. What can i say? its an awesome three floyds porter.

If the description gets you excited, don’t be. This is better compared to Alpha Klaus, and a thinned down version at that, than to Dark Lord. Big on the citrus hops, just like Alpha Klaus, just a little bit thinner and has a bit of a harsh aftertaste that’s reminiscent of coffee.
