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.

650 ml bottle @ Christianssand Brygghus. Black body with a big, creamy, long lasting beige head. Not very strong, but nice aroma of roasted dark malt, coffee and some dry fruit. Flavor is nice, quit sweet, more dark fruit than malt actually, mild roast and a bit harsh bitterness, but not in a bad way. Itís nice and smooth. Full body and good aftertaste. A very pleasant one, nothing extreme at all.

Loved the deep nose on this beer...lots of roasted toasted malts, light chocolate and coffee, and more plum thatn in the flavor. Really nice combo that tasted good too, just not AS good as it smelled. This would be a solid malty brew with or without the fruit, but the ever so slight flavor, sweetness and hints of tart and another layer."

Bottle pour. Black, with beige head. Small accounts of webbing. Sweet perfume of candied plums, chocolate milkshake, and some oats. Medium body. Somewhat watery, especially for style. Raisons, cherries, dark chocolate and some tobacco. Rough edges.

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 donít 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 Iíll 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.
