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.

A black beer with subtle ruby hues. A minimal cream head popping on the nose with chocolate notes. While the beer label talks of plum it is very subtle, hopefully the one I age will come out more. What you do find is a lot of coco, very similar to their choklat. The base malts must be the same but there is added sophistication. A really nice cold winter night drink.

Jimsal27 (204) - New York, USA - DEC 5, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2013 Aroma of plums, wine and malt. After that I found the beer ordinary. Thin mouthfeel, bland taste. I’ve had better. Southern tier continues to disappoint.

It poured a black color with a light tan head. The aroma was very light and had some sweet plums, chocolate and roasted malts. The taste was sweet smooth chocolate with a light dark fruit note and a little bitter with a smooth finish. Nice.

Coffee straight up with a hint of plum at the end. General fruitiness is more of an afterthought than the main thing.

Deep mahogany with a thin brown crown that reigns over its beer for a long, long time. Aroma is upfront plum and chocolate with dark roasted malts, dark fruits and light caramel. Taste of dark roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and alcohol with a peppery and zippy finish.

wedgie9 (1820) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Tasted on 11/24/13 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle. Pours opaque dark brown with an average tan head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is pretty straight-forward dark chocolate and coffee porter with a very light fruity, almost vinous note. The flavor follows suit with standard porter characteristics dominating and just a light hint of fruit on the back end. The body is medium to full with average carbonation and a long dark coffee and dark chocolate finish with just a tinge of fruit.
