Plum St. Porter is named in honor of the unique Northeast neighborhood section of Bozeman, where the brewery is located. An eclectic and somewhat eccentric mixture of homes, businesses and art studios. Plum St. Porter is a rich blend of six different malts including wheat, brown and chocolate for a velvety smooth texture. Full malt bodied with a deep dark coffee color and a subtle hop dryness to make this porter extremely enjoyable. Starting Gravity of 1.056.

Six pack from the Bozeman airport. Solid, dark appearnace. looks like a porter. Malty, obviously. It’s heavy on the chocolate and caramel notes. The palate is medium heavy. Flavor is pretty sharp, a little astringent even. Notes of nutshells, caramel, chocolate, gas station coffee. Finishes ashy. It got better as it warmed.

Less roasted malt and coffee than in an average Porter, but pleasantly heavy on the caramel, with complements chocolate. Lower on the abv spectrum, but not flavor or body.

APPEARANCE ? perfect blackness, light beige head. NOSE ? great coffee notes backed by some malty sweetness. FLAVOR ? backs up the great scents well. Solid porter, almost approaching a stout level of roastiness and depth.

12 oz pour from a refrigerated can into a shaker pint. Black and opaque with a solid tan head. Very chocolatey nose. Sweet, milky, caramel aromas as well. Taste reflects the nose, but with the milky caramel flavors coming through even stronger. Great balance of sweet and dry. One of the best sweet porters I’ve yet had.

Spirited, without the heavy or gritty feeling some porters come with. I'd drink it in a pinch, but not my top porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Transfer from BA review on 5-4-14- Poured from can into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours deep –deep brown color with a huge thick tan colored head. The head has a fantastic level of retention slowly fading to leave a rings of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite delicious with lots of sweet smells of caramel and toffee as well as a great showing of milk chocolate and roasted malts. Along with these aromas are some very light hints of vanilla and some light dark fruit aromas. Quite chocolaty, sweet, and smooth. Taste – The taste begins with a roasted malt and caramel flavors with some mild dark fruit flavors of a fig and raisin nature. The fruit and roast flavors remain relatively constant throughout the taste with the caramel gaining a bit of strength as the taste moves on. Along with the increase in the caramel, there is also an arrival of some light coffee and chocolate flavors. The chocolate remains very weak, but the coffee does grow a bit in intensity (although it still remains relatively light overall) with the mix of flavors left on the tongue at the end, leaving a semi-smooth and sweet roasted coffee flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is average as well. A bit of a lower carbonation level and a thicker and creamier body would have been better for the brews darker flavors, really accentuating them over the sweeter flavor of the brew better. Overall – A decent porter overall and very drinkable but nothing really all that extraordinary.
