Titanic Plum Porter Review
Titanic Plum Porter is produced by the Titanic Brewery Company, in Stoke On Trent. This brewery which was formed in 1985 has grown to become a multiple award-winning, popular producer. Going from 7 barrels to 3 million pints a year, the accolades speak for themselves.
This particular porter is multiple award-winning, from a Gold in the Champion Beer of Britain to West Midlands CAMRA – Beer of the Year. The Staffordshire brewery is run by local brothers, Keith & Dave Bott who still take an active role in the brewing process alongside 150 local employees.
What’s In It
The brewery notes are “This beer is dark strong and well rounded; the richness of such a rotund beer is brought to an even keel by the late addition of Goldings hops and natural plum flavouring. Take the opportunity and go for the low hanging fruit, this sumptuous beer really is a plum!”.
A heavy but refreshing porter. You get the aroma of the plums before you get to taste it. I found this slightly bitter through the hops which were partly cancelled out by the sweetness of the plum. At 4.9% it’s a deep, dark porter with a decent head.
Beer Enjoyment Score Total;
Although not too unenjoyable, this isn’t one I’d rush out to buy again. The plum and bitterness kind of clashed but didn’t really do it for me. Decent gravity is one attraction to this drink, but sadly this isn’t just enough.
Scoring a slightly disappointing 4.5, this doesn’t quite make the grade.
