Plums are a diverse group of species, with somewhere between 19 & 40 varieties depending upon whom you ask. Were 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 Noirs 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.

Funknmilla (742) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Rating from October 2013...Bottle...This beer starts out bitter...the toffee, the coffee, the grains & no plum, what a shame....Pours dark brown with a small head...as it warms up I start to get so....a smooth body that switches to bitter effervescence....a hint of plum shows up...some more cocoa and some bitter coffee and earthy grain taste....a little caramel tucked away as well...kinda hidden in the bitter....not my favorite type of porter, but good

VsXsV (4088) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2013
Bottle. Clear deep brown liquid with ruby hue and small tan head. Aroma of dried fruit, raw sugar, raisins, toffee, bread, biscuit, toast, licorice and light chocolate. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of dried fruit, bread and licorice. Light to medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Bit thin. Smells great but too light bodied.

Draft at Khyber Pass. Pitch back pour that showed as a clear red under bright light. Thin tan head leaves some delicate lace. Nice strong dark malt flavors. Rich plum notes. Good spicy pepper finish. Another great offering from Southern Tier.

Slipstream (2552) - USA - NOV 2, 2013
Here is an imperial porter brewed with plums. The aroma is malty and yeasty, with a dash of tart plums. The flavor: sweet coffee, malt, and a warm tingle on the back end. There is a little compote and caramel too, and it is easy on the hops. A good brew.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottled 02MAY13 Pours a dark brown with a fine tan sheet over the top. Smells of plum, quick chocolate cocoa powder, some soil, some black olive. Flavor is fruity with a dimatap character. Some dust, some cocoa, some bitterness and a mint in the background. Not really impressive. Medium bodied with a silky feel and a nice off dry finish - feel of this beer is really good. Overall, nothing special.

beerbill (3616) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear deep reddish-brown with a moderate beige head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of sweet malt and plums along with a few notes of roast. The flavor is similar to the aroma with sweet malt and plums along with a bit of roasted malt. Mild bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. Solid.
