look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Dark brown with a plum tinge. It’s a deep red purple tinge when held to the light. Looks clear not cloudy on first pour, no visible carbonation. A finger of beige head with a light purple tinge.

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.
