COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Plums are a diverse group of species, with somewhere between 19 & 40 varieties depending upon whom you ask. We’re using what we consider to be the best to brew with. the Italian plum has beautiful dark skin & the flesh is perfect for fermentation. Plum Noir’s mild sweetness is derived no necessarily from the many malts we use. A bit of plum flavor is present as well as earthy, toasted grains, & hints of caramel with mild coffee overtones.

RRistow12 (255) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Tasted from draft. Pours a dark brown with tan head. Great lacing. Strong aroma of roasted malt. Taste is sweet roasted malt and caramel. I don't get any plum. Very well balanced. Hints of coffee but not much. Minimal bitterness. Nice feel on the palate. Moderate the heavy body. Very smooth drinkable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not detecting much plum in this one, but it is a pretty great imperial stout nonetheless. Pours dark with a tan head, aroma of coffee, dark fruits, and booze. Taste is smooth malts and dark fruits with hints of coffee and tobacco. Good beer!

Pours a two finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Black color, no highlights. Good carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Roasted malt nose and flavor is light malty sweetness with some bitter chocolate. Not finding any plum. $9.49 for a 22oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Marlboro, MA

PhillyBeer2112 (2525) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Dark garnet almost opaque, smallish head no lacing. Aroma is restrained, some dark malt notes like molasses and burnt sugar but also def plums. Flavor tends more toward the chocolate malts with a nice pleasing rounded sweetness from the plums. Balanced finish with bittersweet cocoa, light hopping. Somewhere between semidry and semisweet making very drinkable.
