look: 3 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a snifter.
3.0 A: Black color. One and a half fingers of frothy light brown head. Retention is a tad below average and no lacing is left.
4.25 S: This smells pretty damn great. The plums work so well in this. Soft, but potent roastiness. Chocolate up front with caramel undertones. Plum fruitiness foremost then black currant and grape. It's not overly complex, but what is there fits together so well.
3.75 T: Taste is very good, but it can't compete with the beauty that is the nose. Same flavors overall. Supple roastiness, chocolate and caramel, plum, currant, grape, and a peppery spiciness.
3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. This is missing creaminess. With it, this would fit just perfectly.
3.5 D: Tasty brew with a great nose. Pick this up if you find it.

Grabbed this on sale. Pours cola brown and appears darker as it collects in the glass. Minimal brown head present. The nose features mellow chocolate and roast with a slight hint of plum towards the end. The chocolate is rich and dark, the plum is understated but does bring a nice dark fruit note to the nose. The taste isn't nearly as good as the nose would lead you to believe. There is some chocolate to start but the plum competes with these flavors. It takes a turn to plum juice notes that adds a bit of unpleasant acidity to the flavor. The finish is just a mess and leaves a bad aftertaste. The body is silky with low carbonation. Overall, this beer feels a bit like the base for Choklat, but the plum does no favors for this beer. Too bad.
