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!

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.

Red brown colour. Aroma is full of fruity syrup. Flavour is like a fruity tea. Forest fruits. Dry finish.

Definitely in my winter top 3.... gorgeous plum aroma which fools you into believing it may be just another sickly sweet porter, but no, after a millisecond of sweetness you are smacked around the taste buds with plums, coffee, chocolate, nuts, toast, Aardvarks, Kumquats....you name it, it is in there somewhere

Dark porter beer with a plummy aroma, a fruity plummy spiced flavour, with adryish bitter finish. A typically distinctive beer from titanic.

the aroma of sweet plum, caramel, milk chocolate, toffee, lollipop and raisin... the taste is caramel and fruity with notes of plum, toffee, berries, candy, vanilla and chocolate... sweet, bitter and dry aftertaste...

Bottle : Deep ruby red with thin beige head, strong clean fruity aroma. Lovely strong plum off sweet taste, slighty dry finish. Very nice.

StueyD (1549) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2015
A dark reddish brown coloured beer with a frothy but weak pinkish white head. A potent fruity aroma, definite plum element and slightly spicy. Dry mouthfeel. The taste reflects the aroma, a strong plum fruit flavour, thus is underpinned by a rich nutty malt taste, this in turn is followed by a mild bitterness towards the end. The finish is bitter and full of plum flavour. Bottle from Lidl, Fakenham.

Live rating of a 500 ml bottle from Lidl, served cellar cool in a pint sleeve. Pours deep clear brown with a tan head. First aroma I caught was old fashioned sarsaparilla tablets and juicy fruit gum. Flavour took me back to the long retired Cain’s raisin beer, but if I’m honest, the fruitiness in this beer is a bit muted and synthetic, and the hop bitterness slightly jarring. Also, the texture is a bit wattery and thin. "Natural plum flavouring"... hmmm. A low overall score, but it would be nice if they tried again.

500ml: A vibrant nose with rich plum , roast . deep purple that morphs into brown and a decent khaki head : palate is tangy , rich and oily. the plum notes are rich and not as generic as I assumed. some coffee roast , dry bittersweet too. not gross at all considering what some fruit porters are like. nice .
