For the first time in a long while I came across some ale from the Titanic Brewery. For reasons I am not 100% sure of, a lot of my local haunts have stopped stocking them, which is a damn shame as I am rather partial to the Iceberg and the Chocolate & Vanilla Stout.
The Plum Porter is the current guest Ale at the Mytton & Mermaid in Atcham and at 4.9% it is not exactly a driver friendly ale, so I would advise that being a passenger is the best approach.
It is quite a full bodied ale and the Plum taste is quite rich but not overly sickly as can happen with some ales. It is certainly a winter warmer and was a nice drink for a wet afternoon and hopefully it will be showing up in my haunts as we approach the end of the year and head into darkness.
