Very dark coal color. Sweet, but not much that reminds me of a pudding. Nice touches of plums and cinnamon, though. RichTheVillan (8550) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2018

December 2017 - Bottle picked up in Richmond and shared at One Canada Square, just before Christmas. As 'Wiper and True Plum Pudding', 6.8%. Brown with an orange hue, opaque, foamy light brown head leaves light lacing. Aroma is nutty, woody, piney, floral. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is nutty, demerara, rounded malts, also quite woody-piney hops. Very drinkable with both good malt and hop character. Tasty. (7-4-7-4-15=3.7)

Pours very dark brown with an off white head. Aroma is dark coffee and spice. Taste is moderately sweet up front, leading to a very lightly spiced middle, ending with a fair, dark bitterness. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Pretty decent. drjoeng (1481) - SINGAPORE - JAN 12, 2018
Poured out black brown. 34ºSRM.
Nose has wet woodsmoke, hint of old leather, coffee, dark chocolate, fruity sweetness like the drying nectar of a ripe plum. Maybe even a hint of sweet tobacco.
Mouthfeel is watered honey and almost juicy. Palate has flavors of honey, dates, oatmeal, animal crackers and biscuits, toasted black bread. Hop flavors are charred wood, charcoal, with pine, pine sap and resin. Earthy hop flavors include some cilantro and fennel which tend to be pretty pronounced when the ale warms up.
Finish is medium with an earthy, sappy, resin flavor. mR_fr0g (14241) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2017
