COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a dark black with light tan head. Smells of plum and roasted chocolate and tastes like plum up front finishing with chocolate. Extremely well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty badass beer at Amerasia. Palate is out of this world silky smooth. The plum really comes out in the taste.

Donít really eat or drink plums so not entirely sure what Iím looking for. Porter but has a fruity sweet smell. Tastes sweet up front but dark chocolate finishe makes you want to repeat the process

Strong malt with a light amount of fruit and Belgian yeast. Very dark amber color with a meduim tan head. Moderate malt beginning with a sweet finish. Palate is light for a porter.

22oz bottle from Proof Roasty malt scent with some raisin and a faint whiff of plum/fruit at the end. Reddish brown color and a little beige head that quickly dissipated. Malt coffee toast taste, mild raisin fruit center with a small hop alcohol finish. Overall good, but expected more on the fruit side.

Dark brown with a medium tan head. Smooth and full, slightly roasty with nice malt and a light sweetness from the plums. Toast, coffee, and earthiness. Mouthfeel is not at all thin, very nice for a stronger porter.

Bottle:   Deep dark cola in color, thin to moderate sandy head, spotty lacing.   Odd roasted malt aroma.   Perhaps Italian plums smell like sweat and old bread?   Somewhat sweet on the tongue, roasty, perhaps faint plum, but also a little coffee and toasted bread.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   A touch ashy on the finish.   This one could stand to be heavier.   Twas clean, but the nose isnít all that alluring.   Yeah, needs to be more chewy to be considered an Imperial Porter, in my opinion.

a new treat from the blackwater series. This black porter offered a half inch head poured from the bottle. Aromas gave a hit of roast and earth but there was the faint plum as well. A unique fruitiness that reminded me of black plums with slight tart aroma. Taste was mostly mild coffee but again finished with the fruit brightness. Good even mouth feel that made it feel more light than its 8.5%abv. a good thing to share but i could have had it all to myself easy.
