Staffordshire Craft Beer Review: Plum Porter from Titanic

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Staffordshire craft beer review is for Plum Porter from Titanic.

Share It!

I was kind of a hold out on this beer when it appeared at the pub. Fruit beers and porters just are not my bag. But finally it was the only I hadn't tried and after one sip I must concede that I could have got seriously shitfaced on this strangely purple and deliciously rich liquid.

It was like drinking a strawberry milkshake. Practically purple. Soooo fruity and boozy, sweet and also with a bitter like coffee and a richness of deep dark chocolate. A hint of vanilla. 

So heeeeere's a crazy thing! This was the last beer I had before going to Belfast for the weekend. The very same city in Northern Ireland where the Titanic was built. However, Titanic beers are NOT built in Northern Ireland, they are built in Stoke-On-Trent. And for some reason I seem to remember my dad, is familiar with that area, knew someone whose great uncle or something was the captain of the Titanic. Which isn't that weird because the captain of the Titanic was born in Stoke-On-Trent. Ta Da!
