Bottle as Mr. George. Pours a mostly clear dark brown color with some red. A medium beige head. A sweet toffee cocoa nose. The flavor is more toffee, toast, some fruit. Pretty simple and easy. beeebon (450) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2015
Pours a dark brown, almost cola like with tan head which doesn’t last. Aroma of chocolate, almonds, roasted malt, dark fruits, brown sugar and mild coffee. Taste is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Noticeable carbonation but a slick feel in the mouth. Overall a pretty decent porter, very drinkable. kermis (13480) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2015

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2015 Modern porter from this classic and renowned English brewery, from a 50 cl bottle with historically themed label; not to be confused with Three Floyds’ legendary imperial stout of the same name. Pale beige, thin, moussy head dissolving rather quickly but retaining well on the edges; colour a very dark purplish brown, still transparent. Very malty aroma, impressions of caramel, very strong cookie dough, dried plums, smoked bacon, black tea, liquorice, dried leaves, raisins, cloves, bark, maple syrup, toasted bread, blackcurrant, vague tobacco accent, perhaps a hint of soy sauce. Restrained candied fruit sweetness in the onset, brief and volatile, subtle salty touch, soft carbo (perhaps even a bit undercarbonated even for this style) and somewhat ’flat’ and thin body as a result, multi-layered maltiness, very caramelly, smooth and slick, sweet, toasted, light chocolatey and subtly smoked accents as well as a very soft and elegant, rounded wheat malt sourishness in the background; no real roasted bitterness, herbal and tea-like, earthy English hops in the finish providing some balance. Pretty straightforward beer, centered around the malts with little else, but well-made, no off-flavours and the bittersweet caramelly malt character is surely very enjoyable if you’re a ’malthead’. Closer to a brown ale than to a real porter if you ask me, though. Iphonephan (6988) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2015
From a pint bottle shared at Ryan’s, brought from UK with the "Dark Lord" label. No serious beer drinker would confuse this withs the FFF DL, but this is not bad -- a very drinkable mild English porter, heavy on the malts and smooth in the finish. gegwilson (3708) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle courtesy of Andy and Kate. Pours ruby with little in the way of a head. The flavour is malty with spice. Nice enough. Alexi91 (437) - Bristol/Romsey, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2015 Origin: Bottle. Vessel: Bottle. Locale: House (Bristol). Medium carbonation, sweet bite, rich and meaty. redders1974 (1473) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2015
Pours black with a thin head quite velvety with chocolate notes and burnt toffee flavours. Nice easy drinking porter.
