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.

Dark brown body with a reddish hue about the edges. Chocolate and light roast aromas. Pleasant, but light. Plums add a slight sweetness and is perceptible. It's an easy drinking porter. The plums add both earthy and sweet characteristics with a hint of leather. Southern Tier often goes overboard with the flavored beers (and I mean that in a good way) and this was much more user friendly than I expected. Medium bodied, smooth, average carbonation. Overall, a very good beer. Nothing terribly complex yet a nice twist on the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep brown with garner hues. Nose of cocoa powder, molasses, brown sugar, some dark fruit, sherry, cardboard, and soy sauce. Flavor is roasted malt, cocoa, slightly acidic dark fruit, brown sugar, and soy sauce. Medoum palate. Apparently cannot withstand the test of time.

Had a sample of this at Mikkeller & Friend’s in Copenhagaen last year, I thought I already rated it... anyways, on tap. A nice dark inky black pour with minimal head. The aroma was roast coffee notes, no plum. The taste was more of a straight up medium bodied porter again with no plum. If you put it in the name I expect to smell or taste it, if I don’t I consider the brewer missed the mark. A fine porter but no plum. The bartender couldn’t pick up on any plum either, we both seemed somewhat disappointed.

Pours a light brown head. Aroma is IPA like. Fresh water. Grassy. Mouthfeel is light bodied with very subtle roasted notes. There is a lot going on in this beer.

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.
