COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Plums are a diverse group of species, with somewhere between 19 & 40 varieties depending upon whom you ask. Weíre 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 Noirís 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.

This is primarily a nice chocolatey sweet porter. Iím really looking for the plums. Iím just not really getting any. Maybe a vague fruitiness in the aroma.

Average trash head on cloudy brown body. Nice chocolate ash taste that while the plum notes donít come through i believe it sweetness rounds out this port.

MrBeerFanatic (1005) - Friona, Texas, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Pours much like dark pepsi with a frothy creamy head. Big aromas of roasted malt, light smoke, zesty hops, coffee, and caramel. Flavors of big roasty malts, caramel, plumbs are almost hidden behind the big roastyness, coffee, and zesty hops. Lightly silky. Light to medium bitter smoke/bitter aftertaste, light to medium sweet.

The aroma is very toasted and has chocolate, coffee, and burnt molasses but no plum. The appearance is red brown with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma and bitter and a touch fruity but not plumy. The palate is average. Overall itís an average I/porter but I donít get the plum.

Dark brown pour with tan head. Aroma of toasted caramel and a bit of dark fruit. The taste wasnít as sweet as I anticipated. The body was a bit weak but roasted bittersweet finish. Not as much plum as I was hoping for

June 26, 2013 - 22 ounce bottle from Zipps. Black pour with some head that faded quickly. Aroma was chocolate, hops, coffee and caramel. Taste was roasted malt, smoke, chocolate, mild caramel and slight bitter finish. Some carbonation and medium bodied. Did not get the plum and wanted this to be more wine like, disappointed.
