From Main Street Brewing in Vancouver comes their “Barking Mad Plum Porter”. The beer pours a fairly light brown colour with a tan head. The aroma consists of mild roast, plums, ash and fruit that I can not quite pin down. The flavour is of plum, mild roast, earth, mild bitterness, coffee, ash and chocolate. The alcohol content comes in at 5% with an IBU of 15. This was quite a bit lighter than I expected but that does not take away from the fact it is a tasty beer.
Commercial Description: Barking Mad is a brown porter with a complex malt bill, including crystal, brown and chocolate malts, along with golden naked oats, for caramel, grain and chocolate flavours. Generous plum additions give this beer a rich, fruity flavour and aroma.
