uckelman (803) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2017
Black, opaque. Small tan head. I don’t get a huge aroma from this, but there’s a complex flavor. Raisins, rum, coffee. Not bad at all.

3.1
sarauckelman (542) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2017
Black with tan head. Not much aroma, but there’s hints of raisins and rum, with a hint of coffee. More dry than sweet, with hoppiness and burnt coffee being the primary flavors. I don’t taste much of the fruit, or any caramelized sugars, but it may be just a bit too cold at the moment. Palate is a bit harsh on the end.

3.3
Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2017
500ml bottle. Darkest brown with short head. Notes of plum, cola, roasted malt, tobacco. Decent hop presence to balance the sweetness. Not bad.

MarcoDL (5028) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2017
Bottle at Drie Dorstige Herten. Black pour. Aroma of roasted malt, plums and sweet creamy chocolate. Smooth flavor of sweet fruit, plums, creamy roasted malt, chocolate and some spices. Soft mouthfeel. Very nice.

15/20 smooth port with a nice cheeyness to it. Don't really taste the plum but there's a nice subtle lemon to it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gerbeer (3782) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2017
500 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with light white head. Aromas of dry clean chocolate and roasted malts. Flavors folllow same with additional dark fruit (plum skin), orange chocolate and licorice. Scrubbing carbonation. Porter or stout - I don’t know - but very good.

3.6
weordie (1218) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2016
Pours black with a foamy head. The aroma has hints of cinnamon and alcoholic fruit. There’s certainly cinnamon in there but it’s subtler than most spiced beers, some lightly roasted malts too. Very subtle flavours.
