COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & bottled; Regular.

This beer is dark strong and well rounded; the richness of such a rotund beer is brought to an even keel by the late addition of Goldings hops and natural plum flavouring. Take the opportunity and go for the low hanging fruit, this sumptuous beer really is a plum!

Towey1989 (133) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) Deep ruby brown colour with creamy beige head. Aroma mainly sweet plum with hints of roasted and chocolate malts. Taste is sweet plum which dominates but has prune and roasted malt notes. Oily mouthfeel and light bodied. A long, roasted bitter finish. A pretty nice fruit porter.

Deep dark porter, that hits you full in the face with a fruit taste at first, followed by a milder hoppy taste, only took a few tastes to make this one off my favourite beers. Tasted from cask direct from the Titanic brewery.

What a beer. Dark and inviting. It begins with that fruit attack on the tongue and then the hops linger just enough to make you want more. So go back to the bar and order another one !

Tap(CBC Clerkenwell):Deep amber coloured with a ruby sheen; moderate sweetish plummy and toasty nose with distinctive herbal hops in the background; moderate, but pretty distinctive, bitter-sweet flavour, soft and almost medium bodied; lingering more herbal than roasty than plummy finish. A good oneÖ
