Keg at Craft Beer Co, Clapham, London. A black coloured pour with a thin beige head on top. Plum, chocolate aroma. Tastes of plum, some chocolate, caramel, slightly roasty/bitter/sweet. Expected more complexity from a Southern Tier beer but still quite drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice dark black amber. Plum aroma is right at the front of the nose. Plum notes are up front, but subdued with the malts, give it an interesting flair, but very pleasant and easy to drink.

Bottle pours deep brown/black with a medium beige head. Aroma is predominantly dark chocolate and roast with a definite plum presence. Flavor is light to moderate sweet, with notes of chocolate, caramel, coffee, and faint plum/dark fruit in the finish. Overall body is moderate and creamy with decent roast and a moderately bitter finish. Alcohol is extremely well balanced.

Craft Clapham. Keg. Opaque black - brown beer with a small pale tan head. Palate is light and smooth, semi dry. Fine carbonation. Very light touch of dark malts, no roast or bitterness here. Whisper of chocolate. Mild fruity tang. Smooth but frankly disappointing. Not getting the normal Southern Tier sumptuousness or depth of flavour.
