Botella. Amber brown like colour. Quite sweet dark fruity plum candy like bit aroma with some roastiness under all that sweetness. Good mouthfeel. Quite sweet flavour, dark fruity plum roasty like, some chocolate too. Rather too sweet.

On gravity at the Tewkesbury winter beer festival, 7/2/2014. Deep brown with a slight, off-white head. Touches of roasted malts and chocolate overwhelmed by sweet fruit juice. A long way below the usual Titanic standard.

Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham. Appearance: ruby red/brown, tiny brown head. Aroma: wow. Plums indeed, figs and prunes too, very berry like nose. Flavour: massive fruity flavour, plums and prunes, tons of red berries. Quite interesting.

The Swan and Rushes, Leicester, 02/01/14. Liquid tunes. Ridiculous unbalanced molten throatsweet flavour, although better than the sherried Attila. Brittle, thin, fake added essence of plum character. Headless ruby. Nose synthetic berries. Not good.

Bottle as part of a gift pack from The Royal Exchange, Stone. Pours a dark brown with a beige, bubbly head. Aroma is very plummy, sweet, slight metallic and a faint hint of treacle. Taste is sweet plum and cherry. With a bitterness comparable to burnt toast. Slightly thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation, overall very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Magpie, deep dark red with a fast-settling head and a distinctly plum-and-cherry nose with hints of treacle. Body is initially malty then bursting with plum flavours that blend into and complement the underlying ashy dry-bitter maltiness really well. Bittersweet finish. Excellent!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Dada, Sheffield. Well, what’s the point of rating this? It’s alcoholic plum juice. With a head, and some malty stuff. Really plummy, and very enjoyable, until three quarters in, when it became all a bit samey.

Cask at the White Star, Stoke-on-Trent. Very dark: a slight purplish hue, or am I imagining it? Intense plum and malt aroma. Massive fruit stays through in the taste, sweet with bitter increasing throughout. Great beer, only drawback it that the flavour does become slightly same-y over time.
