Iím fairly spent. Dark Lord is a good beery member name. The lord of the dark may be better. But Mud City kills them both

Bottle from Morrisons 
Dark ruby, clear, frothy off white head, soft bubbles, good lacing
Aroma of soft toffee, light bitter hedgerow hops, some dark fruits, slight hint of coffee, dab of yeast
Taste - Dark caramel malts, some roasted malt, some bitter spicy hops, dab of dark fruits, touch of metallic minerals, bit of yeast.
Palate - Medium carb and body. Finish - little dry, as main flavour, some roasted malts, slight metallic, spicy hop linger
Overall - There is a fair amount of flavour in here, but Iím just not keen on that metallic, mineraly bit yeasty note. Just scraps a 3

This has a very pleasant, almost red wine like quality to it. It is a dark, almost solid color with very little head that does cling to the side. I is favorable with slight bitterness with a hint of citrus flavor. This was Mr. Georgeís bottled as sold in the U.S.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Attractive but undated brown 500ml bottle served in a snifter.
Poured a very dark mahogany color, less ruby colored than expected, with a small tan head that mostly dispersed quickly.
The aroma features dark roasted malts, dark fruits and hints of chocolate and some light spicing.
Taste: Subtle hints of spices mixed with vague dark fruits, dark breads, a touch of toffee and hints of coffee and chocolate: a nice and fairly well-balanced mix.
Mouthfeel: Very smooth and properly carbonated, but a tad watery in the finish.
O: quite enjoyable English porter that improves with some warming (Mine started at about 45F).

500 ml bottle. Almost black with a small tan head. Aroma of fruit, liquorice and coffee. Slightly watery on the palate. A nice enough ale

If youíre going to call a beer the Dark Lord then it really needs to be a beast, something special. This is an acceptable lunchtime beverage to accompany sausage and mash. Thin, strange carbonation, a hint of coffee and too much fruit. Less the dark lord, more the light fingered urchin who lives down the road on the corner.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle. Dark brown with small , grey head. Nose : burned bread, cheese, caramel, toffee, dark fruits. Sip : oily, medium thick body with low carbonation. Sweet burned malts flavor, nuts, develops funky sour notes of sweet coffee but much more delicate. Delicate bitterness. Earthy notes on the end. Always happy to try something new, this one has nothing special. Itís been a long time I didnít drink pasteurized porter.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Slightly sour roasty malt aroma. Deep mahogany with a small tan head. Same as nose, slightly sour roasty malt flavor, with a lingering herbal bitter finish. Light watery body, moderate carbonation. Tastes and smells nothing like a porter.
