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.
Bottle from Aldi. Backlog rating from bottle collection and historic scoring. No tasting notes kept, just rating.

Barwa ciemna jak cola. Ladna bezowa piana dlugo sie utrzymoje. Aromat slodowy z domieszka karmelu
W smaku palony slud I calkiem mila goryczka. Caly efekty psuje wysokie nasycenie. Piwko na raz drugim go nie kupie. john44 (3392) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle. Dark ruby colour. Malty (roasty and caramelly). Sour fruity (berries and citrus). Spicy peppery hops. Thin bodied. Unfortunately, an unremittingly bitter roast taste, which leads to a dry finish. Not for me. (2008)

Bottle from Co-op in Sutton Bridge. Dark brown with a smidge of black purple. Very little off white head. Chocolate malt aroma with slight grassy hop. Sweet malty taste with bittering hop sneaking in for the finish. Chocolate fudge in the aftertaste. Nice full body. Simple but effective. Maakun (6433) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2016
Bottle shared at home. Finally the real Dark Lord! Very dark brown with beige head that leaves a small film. Raisins, dried fruits, some dark chocolate, some light cardboard, light spices, dates, old stale coffee. Light sweet and bitter. Under medium bodied. Decent.

En god mørk øl, med smag af citrus og brændt malt, og næsten en humlesmag, i hvert fald bitterhed. God fylde i den, der gør at eftersmagen bliver ekstra lang. Rigtig god "hygge Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2016
