Served on tap in a goblet at the Rail House, Waverly NY. The plum in the name may scare some away from this imperial porter, but do not be afraid!. The plum is hardly noticeable in this richly brewed porter. Sinfully smooth. Dangerously easy to drink for a high abv.

A-Black in the glass, one finger tan head, clear ruby around the edges, some lacing.

S-Mainly roasted malt, some plums and burnt notes. Dark chocolate and vanilla as well.

T-Good balance with the roasted malt and plums. Some coffee and burnt notes. Dark chocolate as well.

M-Medium bodied, creamy and nicely carbonated.

O-Still could have used some more plums, a good beer nonetheless. However Jahva and Mokah were superior.
