Dark brown, nearly black and opaque with a thick beige head that settles slowly. Low aroma of faint raisin and Cabernet, perhaps a touch of Cabernet. Interesting flavor of rich dark malt, darkly toasted, not roasted, with rich dark fruit flavors. Not sweet, but rich and well complemented to the malt. Firm bitterness against the malt, but no hop flavors. Rich and full mouthfeel, good beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - a very dark brown color, with a tan head and good retention.

Smell - a sweet chocolate malt smell with the plums coming in as well.

Taste - Like the smell, it is a sweet chocolate/coffee malt taste, with the plums adding a fruity and tart element to it.

Mouthfeel - It is a bit light for a porter, carbonation is perfect.

Overall - It is a good combination of sweet and tart flavors, very good beer.
