Bottle from Lidl.
Wanted to try this for a while, quite a surprising beer. Very interesting.
This beer changes quite a lot during each mouthful, starts very sweet fruits but quickly transitions to bitter English style hops. It is actually very bitter to my palate and it has a roasted almost burnt toast finish. Glad I bought three bottles.

Sreved on Hand Pump at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham into an English half pot.

Mid brown in colour with a ruby hue, very light in colouration compared to a typical porter. Small white head upon serving but this quickly dissipated.

A sweet plum and floral aroma, certainly smelt like what it said it was on the tin!

In the taste, even 'plummier'! Quite a sweet tasting beer, but not overbearing, but glad I only went with a half pint as I've not got a massive sweet tooth! Maybe some other fruits in the background?

Also some caramel and sugars, slight trace of nuts in the background but very subtle in this respect - it really is all PLUM !!!

Finishes with a bitter sweet aftertaste where as when supping it is all sweet

Mouthfeel was not as you'd expect from a porter, that said it is a 'thin' porter and hardly resembles what you'd expect from the style

Not a watery beer, a good mouthfeel, just not what you'd expect before ordering!

I'd have this again, just stick to a half unless you've a sweet tooth!
