COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cold fermented and lagered. Only available in 330ml bottles.
"Porter style Ale. Chocolate and beer! Are we Mad? We’d rather say passionate. We marry the soothing flavour of this complex malt barley grist with a hint of dark chocolate. This is a beer for your more self-indulgent moments. Great for lazy afternoons or long evenings, it is best served chilled with your feet up, watching the sun go down. Like we say – chilled."
"A silky-smooth suppertime beer, created using dark malts and chocolate. Pronounced vanilla notes fuse the chocolate and malts together to give a rich, warming, flavour that also works well as a complement to fruity desserts, summer puddings and autumn berries."

Butelka 330ml. Piekny brunatny kolor z palona piana ktora szybko zanika pozostawiajac obrecz.w zapachu dominuje czekoloda i alkoholowe nuty. Smak slodki o wyraznej czekoladowej barwie ale i karmelu i kawy.cos dla smakoszy...

mariuspoenari (1288) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2015
Dark brown, semi-opaque and clear, with a beige head with decent retention. It has a smell fresh, with cocoa, vanilla, milk chocolate, roasted malts. The taste follows the same notes. Bitter-sweet finish, very light body (could have done with a bit more thickness) and medium carbonation.

sjogro (2265) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2015
Fles bij Van Alsem. Beetje te waterig, te slap en te zuur voor de smaken die t moet dragen. Zure chocolade is niet zo lekker als zoete. Backlog from 2015/03/31.

BeerViking (3981) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2015
Excessively cocoa nose, more cocoa on the palate plus a dry bitterness. Too obvious yet also too shallow.

Rownolegle pite butelki Meantime Chocolate Porter i Coffee Porter. Z wygladu oba piwa podobne - ciemne (choc daleko od czarnych - bursztynoiwe przeblyski ewidentne), przejrzyste (choc to malo widac) z dosc szybko redukujaca sie piana (w wersji coffee nieco wyzsza). Aromaty w obu w tle podobne - czyli karmel, palonosc lekka, w wersji czekoladowej... hmmm... aromat chemiczny jakis faktycznie czekoladopodobny zas w wersji coffee cos na ksztalt kakao. W smaku zwlaszcza wersja czekoladowa jawi sie jak piwo smakowe, zdominowane sztuczna, niefajna czekolada. Wersja kawowa wypada duzo lepiej, smakuje jak porter a nie jak piwo smakowe, choc bardziej powiedzialbym, ze okolice kakao niz kawy daja sie wyczuc. ale kawa tez jest. Oba piwa mocno slodkie, bez jakiegos zrownowazenia, w obu dosc mocno wyczuwalny karmel. Oba stosunkowo wodniste, malo ciala. Oba srednio+ a jak na styl to wrecz mocno wysycone. oba z niska (hmmm... praktycznie bez) goryczka. Wersja kawowa: akceptowalnie w calosci, wersja czekoladowa w calosci nieakceptowalnie ;) czyli powiedzmy 3.0 i 2.5
