A- growler from Piggly Wiggly, Myrtle Beach. Pours a dark brown, almost murky. Small fizzy light-tan head reduces to just a ring, leaving no lace
S- dark and rich malty aromas up front with huge notes of dark fruit, the plums are definitely noticeable. Sugary sweet with just a bit of alcohol and some toast, very pleasant
T- sugary sweet dark fruits with a slight burnt crust ,rich and sweet malt with flavors of dried plum, a bit nutty with some toasted bread crust, the finish is sweet with a warming alcohol that lingers on the palate, fig-like notes linger, just a trace of grassy hop
M- med-heavy body, slightly viscous with low carbonation providing a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a smooth, warming finish
O- dark fruity notes dominate the palate, a nice sweet sipper that serves well as a nightcap on a cold night
Serving type: growler

S: Sweet plums, plum pudding or plum pie, fruity, brown sugar, alcohol, raisins.
T: Fruity, plums, brown sugar, alcohol, dark toasted notes, plum skin, slightly tannic
M: Thick syrupy body with medium foamy carbonation.
O: I really like this style, and its well done by Sierra Nevada. Yes, it has the plum theme all the way through. Drank at Turkey Creek Rd, Clyde NC June 28 2014 my daughter’s 2nd birthday.
