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.

BeerViking (3813) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Red-tinged black, with a tan coarse head that settles very quickly to look a bit lifeless in the glass. Nose is light strawberries and toffee, body is dry-sweet with burnt caramel, red fruit, a faint wine note and just a hint of liquorice, coffee and citrus on the finish.

Mr_Pink_152 (3120) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
500ml Bottle: Deep amber coloured, last off white head. Malty aroma with dark dried fruits. Dry bitter-sweet flavour, but not really a Porter as the style suggests.

Beerdedone (3156) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2014

bgb1991 (131) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 29, 2013
Roasted aroma and some sour saltiness. Only a mother could love this beer’s looks. Mushroom and beef pie flavour, disgusting. Thin on the palate. "God" awful.

Melkart (431) - Porto Alegre, BRAZIL - DEC 21, 2013
I think this beer is more to a english ale than to a porter. It is a little bit sweet. Weel balanced and medium body.

mt_hall (181) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2013
Bottled. A very dark red-brown with a small, light-brown head. Muted malt and yeast aromas. Smooth coffee flavours underneath, but slightly let down by an acidic overtone.
