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.

Black with ruby highlights. Dark fruit aroma. Taste is dominated by dark fruit as well. Definite plum flavor along with roasted malt and a touch of coffee. Velvety smooth mouthfeel. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

evergreen0199 (1924) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
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.

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.

Lubiere (9731) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
A dark clear brown porter with a thin brown head. In aroma, sweet chalky and fruity chocolate malt with light grassy hops. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity chocolate with light mineral notes, nice. OttBottShare Dec 15 2013.

Theydon_Bois (7898) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Tap at Craft Clapham, opening night, 06/12/13. Mid black with a moderate tan covering. Nose is light roast, plummy undertones, dark fruit, sugars, light cocoa. Taste comprises chocolate, brown sugars, light plum evident, light roast. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Ok offering but lacking a little depth and complexity for an 8% number.

mcberko (5919) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out loads of plums, chalk, and coal. Flavour brings out lots of chalk and coal, very subtle plum notes and toasted bready notes. Way too chalky and coal-like, with a sludgy body. This is way off - not sure what they were going for here, but it didn’t work. Not enjoyable.
