    Yes, really can't get on with Plum Porter, but would try the Cherry Dark as and when I see it.

    and the Cherry Dark, I suspect it's a bit of a Marmite beer, like Plum Porter, but fans should love this one.
    I'm not a fan of fruit infused beers-I remember not really enjoying Kissingate's Black Cherry MILD. It didn't seem to work for me,although I love Cherries, and enjoy Mild.

    I take your point about the Cherry Dark. Must admit I found the Turbo Plum () a bit of an anticlimax, probably a bit over-hyped.

    Wantsum-Black Prince 3.9%abv. Oddly my first experience of this excellent dry dark MILD.Smokey and roasty.
    A previous BOTW of mine, also. At the time I commented it had a lovely richness for its strength. Mind you, I thought it was a few months ago and was rather alarmed to find it was Nov '17!

    My gut feeling is if you don't like the Plum Porter, you'll struggle with it, but who knows?
