500ml bottle - Very deep dark coloured body with a large dark tan head with good lacing.Roasted grainy malt aromas. In the taste it was a little bit of liquorice upfront, some burnt chocolate and also coffee, the citrus is there with a bitter ending. Not bad really.

Bottle. Dark reddish brown beer. Small head. Faint roasted malt aroma. Taste is a little coffee and roasted malts. A little bit of spice and fruits. This is no where near as good as the Salem Porter on cask, I am disappointed in this Porter.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a very thin head. Taste is almost a tad sour. Nose is much the same. I never would have pegged this as a porter. Not a great one.

Bottle 500ml. The aroma is mostly malty with notes of cereal chocolate and the slightest hints of nuts. It pours a dark reddish brown with a deep tan thick laced head that lasts the distance. Taste is of caramel chocolate, through to a burntness and coffee with a slightly bitter lasting finish. Stouts are never my thing but this one was actually quite drinkable.

Dość dobry porter, ale jak dla mnie zbyt mało wyrazisty. Ładny machoniowy kolor, piana średnia, aromaty goryczkowo-chlebowe. Słód pochodzenia ekologicznego.

Nice combination of crystal and roast character, textbook colour. A bit sweet for my tastes as a porter but a nice smoky finish.

The "other" Dark Lord. This poured a darker red to brown color with a biege head. Aroma was of light roast, some caramel, and cherries, but pretty subdued. Flavor was lightly sweet, mild chocolate and roast too. Nothing offensive here, just too bland.

This beer came as Mr. George. Quite dark, but not black. Sparkles nicely in the glass. Very mild typical slight roasty porter aroma. Decent flavor but comes across a little watery on the palate. Perhpas there is some of that mild wild attribute in there. Simple clear olfactory emerges. Yas, overall a porter whcih is not over the top and has some of that old world feel to it.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2013 Dari ruby red almost black and a tan, foamy head. Smells of roasted malt and all that comes with it, chocolate, coffee, burnt, caramel with raisin. Thin light body. Tastes of toasted malt, pepper notes with coffee and caramel/butterscotch. A nice porter that stays sweet without going too far into the roasted and stoutness. Light fruits and spices make it a great.
