From a 500ml bottle.
Glossy black with strong plum smell and flavour. Not much chocolate or coffee but lots of sweet (rather than tart) plum and a hint of smokiness. Body is light with moderate carbonation and a dry finish. An interesting beer - I like the concept - but I'd prefer more porter and less plum.

Titanic Brewery "Plum Porter"
cask via handpump @ Ship & Mortar, Liverpool, UK on 1 MAY 2015

Notes: Dark brown with ruby highlights beneath a thin head of khaki.Good head retention and lacing. Fruity in the nose with some caramel and dark chocolate. There's some plum in the flavor but it's tempered by the dark malts. The caramel malts come through as well, which is nice, and not always the case with porters. Subtly buttery. Moderate to median bitterness balances. Some earthy/dark skinned fruit character gives it a touch of astringency - dry finish with some mild grassy and leafy hops and fruit lingering. Medium-light in body and smooth via cask-conditioning. Remarkably balanced and drinkable while still being a bit of an eye opener (unusual).

Bottled. Very dark chestnut brown. Thick head.
I detected the sweet plum immediately along with some caramel malt.
The initial sweet taste changes to a demi-sec fruit flavour with a light astringent finish.
Quite smooth and very drinkable.

Contains natural plum flavouring. Pours brown/amber, small head. Aroma plums. Low bitterness. Sweet then astringent finish. Overall: A wonderful fruit beer. If it could get a supermarket listing, it would make the brewery millions!

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.
