A Note on This Beer
It’s been pretty rough these past few months, which is why you deserve a swig of something strong, savory, and bold.
And Hoppin’ Frog’s big, juicy Plum Tuckered-Out Double Double Porter is just what the doctor ordered!
That’s not a typo in the name either — the brewmasters at Hoppin' Frog added the extra “double” because of the marathon of fermentation that pushes this Porter to a mind-blowing 17% ABV.
And then, they infused it with plum purée!
So, while the huge booziness of this powerhouse Porter entices you into sweet relaxation, the creamy, sweet revelry of dark fruit decadence really seals the deal.
The plum infusion adds deep juiciness rarely found in dark brews, delivering wave after wave of jammy serenity. Deep aromas of figs, raisins, and nutmeg dance on the nose, while the full juiciness of the plums parades across your palate. All the while, dark Chocolate Malts surge through the middle amid notes of toasted almond and espresso.
Mmm, this is the good stuff. Or, as fans like @beger5 on Instagram say, it’s “plum fantastic!”
It would be very easy to down a bottle of Plum Tuckered-Out by yourself over the course of a few hours, but I can’t, in good conscience, recommend you do that.
So, if you don’t have anyone to share in your relaxation time while social distancing, maybe consider sticking it in the cellar for a bit. It will only get better with time!

Very tasty porter
Raisins. Chardonnay. Steaming tarmac. Sardine mocha.
Delicious but threw me under the bus fast. A little too boozy. Definitely one to share with one or two other.
An elixir of prune juice and molasses that will mess you up. Except better.
Surprisingly good and slightly sweet
A pure form of “getting lit” in a cup
A little to sweet.
Plum, smooth, sweet. Sneaky ABV
A little too much sweetness for me - leaned into barleywine territory.
Wow. Lots of plum and dark fruit, with some notes of dates and dried figs. Rich and mildly sweet and rather boozy. Very nice.
Smooth sweet and boozy
Tasted like a good porter.
Get this one every year. Tasty porter
