COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Sold as Mr George’s Ruby Porter in the US due to trademark issues.
Note: According to sources, currently (2012) Dark Lord and Salem Porter are the same beer - named Dark Lord in bottles and Salem Porter on cask.

A dark ruby beer with a rich flavour and spicy finish. The hop grist adds a hint of citrus to complement the roasted malt character. Dark, Delicious and Delectable.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - APR 4, 2008
Bottle, from Fin. Thanks mate! Nice start with an attractive ruby-highlighted brown pour and sticky tan head leaving a lacey ring around the glass. Blackstrap molasses aroma, with that unrefined sugary twang. Much dryer than the aroma would indicate. Just a hint of brown sugar sweetness and roast, fairly aggressive carbonation and a rather short finish. Just a bit of lingering plum. Fun to try the other Dark Lord...

Bottle. Red brown colour with a beige head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasted. Flavour is malt, roasted, fruit, coffee, chocolate. OK beer, but need more body.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear, reddish brown with a nice, beige head. The aroma is nice and chocolatey with coffee as well, but it sort of lacks something. The same goes for the flavor, there’s coffee and chocolate, and a little hoppy bitterness, but still there’s missing something. In addition, there’s a touch of vegetables that I didn’t think too much of. Medium body, sweetish and dry. A quite nice beer, but as mentioned, it lacks something. (080215)

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2011 1) Dark malt, cooked sugar and sticky sweet fruit aroma. Stouty with ruby edges and a thin white head. Sweet, buttery and vaguely smoky, with brittle chocolate, liquorice and caramel notes. Can’t taste any hops. Thinnish but tasty. 2) (as ’Mr George’). Bastards got me- should’ve spotted the 9fl oz on the neck. Dark chestnut beer with a fine beige slick. Decent, boozy aroma; charcoal, sticky black breads, marzipan, black cherry peppered with aniseed. House Bateman’s stuff, blackened. More watery, typical Bateman’s taste; black cherry, brown sugar, aniseed. Thin, sugary. Faint dusting of roast. 736313.

500 ml bottle. Very dark red body, almost black. Medium beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, liquorices and chocolate. Flavor is sweet, roasted malt, liquorices and hints of chocolate. Quite nice, but something is missing to be really great.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2008
Very dark brown with a beige head. Pear fruit and caramel in the aroma. Sweet caramel taste with mid bitter finish. Rather liked this; reminded me of some rum fudge granny brought back from the Lake District in 1959.

Bottle, from Morrisons, 11-02-08 Poured dark brown with beige head (quite largeish head actually) some fruit and caramel on the nose, fruity flavours, with sweet dark malts, a bit of bitter chocolate and bitterness is ok if a little safe, ok.
