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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Smokey, liquorice smell, rich tasting, fulsome flavour, dark and hoppy!
Another great ale from this Lincolnshire brewer!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Deep ruby-amber coloured, medium-sized - slowly collapsing - off-white head, dry malty nose, dominated by the aroma of dark dried fruits, that creates an almost vinous touch; moderate dry bitter-sweet flavour, soft and almost medium bodied; lingering dry bitter, dry malty finish, accompanied by a certain fruitiness. Quite good...

Mr George’s bottle from b&m Blaydon. Drank 15 months after its sell by date which may have improved its flavour. An extremely dark brown-black beer with sweet red fruity, sherry, currants, liquorice flavours and a slight smoky and roasted finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing. Aroma is dark fruits (raisins, figs?) with some chocolate. Taste is more of the dark fruit with some chocolate malty sweetness and mild hop bitterness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. A little on the thin side for the style, but I still enjoyed this one around a campfire last week.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is sweet malts and dark dried fruit. A dark brown pour with ruby highlights with a mostly diminishing tan head and no lacing. A malt forward porter; initial sweetness with hints of vanilla and dry finish. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel. Overall, an enjoyable porter. Sweeter than I normally like, but would definitely would drink again.

Very dark beer that pours with a foamy, beige head. Coffee-esque flavour that it’s not as full-bodied as you might expect with a surprisingly gentle flavour for the strength.
