I just didn't know what to expect from this one. The thought of Pinot Noir and Plum brewed in a Porter sounded so interesting.
From there I left my words.
Poured pretty dark, nothing specific. I could not detect any fruit from this porter. I was hoping for some more. No hoppiness or citrus nose from this. The taste was rather non-carbonated, sort of round with not alot going on.
Finish was ok, but there was some after taste that I could not detect. I will give this one another try in the Fall, but for now, it just didnt do it for me.

Pours a dark brown with a fine tan sheet over the top. Smells of plum, quick chocolate cocoa powder, some soil, some black olive. Flavor is fruity with a dimatap character. Some dust, some cocoa, some bitterness and a mint in the background. Not really impressive. Medium bodied with a silky feel and a nice off dry finish - feel of this beer is really good. Overall, nothing special.

22oz. bottle into a Cigar City snifter. Shared by schen9303.
Pours pitch black and thin with a 1.5 finger light mocha colored head with moderate retention. Lacing is sparse and stringy with good cling,. Oily legs. Solid.
Nose is plum, anise, liquorice, roasted malt, smoke and sweet ash. A touch awkward. Aromatic.
Opens smoky and ashy plum and liquorice. More plum, roast and smoke in the middle with a grainy, smoky malt finish. Ashy and abrasive on the aftertaste. This is not very good.
Medium bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly in the mouth and goes down bubbly and foamy. Finishes messy with a lingering, sticky aftertaste. Okay.
Not a winner. The concept sounds delicious but the execution is just not there with this beer.
