3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another beer shared with Rob and Ally. Thanks! Purchased as my babysitting present for their 4 month old daughter. Aroma: Light aroma overall, but some coffee roast; not a whole lot of plum, but I don’t have a lot of plum experience, either. Otherwise, a coffee balanced porter with a little chocolate. Appearance: Nearly jet black with a foamy tan head that settles into a tan skin. Flavor: Same as the nose. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: Just felt like a solid porter, so I’ll score it that way.

Poured from a bottle while enjoying the World Cup. Beautiful brown 2-finger head, nice lacing, rich color. I can smell the plum much more than I can taste it. Coffee notes as well.

I have to admit I have resisted trying this beer for almost a year in protest that Southern Tier is no longer exporting to our shores, but stocks are almost exhausted so have to pony up and try it. Lovely beer, that is rich and full bodied and the plums fill in the gaps. Damn you Southern Tier for reminding me how good your beers can be, and the fact you no longer sell to NZ. A Creme Brulee sob story.

Eller?? riktigt bra kan drickas även av mindre nogräknade öl gubbar som PQ. Ja såna som dricker allt inte finsmakare som Patrik..
