COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Avaialable in 330ml bottles only. Cold fermented and lagered.
May be known as Coffee Porter.
Our first formulation of this beer was the first UK brewed beer to carry the Fairtrade logo, and although we have reformulated it to create an even better blend better the malt and roast coffee flavours and can no longer get enough coffee in each bottle to qualify for Fairtrade status, we are still using the same Faitrade Araba Bourbon beans from Rwanda’s Abuhuzamugambi Co-operative. At the Meantime Brewing Co we love flavour, so it wasn’t exactly difficult for us to see how the scents and aromas of coffee and barley would create a perfect match like just like mint and lamb, toffee and banana, peaches and cream, peanut butter and jam. Serve lightly chilled with as many chocolate truffles as your conscience allows.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2015 Lovely coffee aroma with a bit of chocolate. Dark brown in glass. Pleasing coffee & malt flavour, astringency on dark malt in a good way for style. Bitter finish from malt/hops/coffee

Awesome coffee, chocolate, dark bread and roasted malts aroma. Dark brown color, clear, rather poor head. In taste it’s really great. It’s full of high quality coffee, cocoa and dark malt. There is no sourness from coffee. There are also ashy notes. It feels very light, very drinkable. Unfortunately it’s a bit over carbonated, which doesn’t match with a porter. But still, light bitterness gives this beer very pleasant aftertaste and good mouth feel. It’s definitely great beer. Hope SAB Miller will let them brew good beers like this one.

On the patio in scorching Florida sun , with Z...pours a dark brown pour with a clean Java head. Nose is mocha , coffee and deep malt. Taste is sweet, sugary coffee with malt, and rather light. Very easy drinkable porter with a dry finish and ending on the same sweet mocha, coffee notes. Pass TV dessert please ! Quaff Score 7 / 10

Piana drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, sycząca, opada do kożuszka. Barwa brązowa, dość klarowna. W aromacie z butelki wyraźna kawa świeżo palona. Ze szkła dochodzi karmel i jakaś nieprzyjemna nuta zbutwiałego prażonego ziarna. W smaku bardzo kawowe, przypomina blend kawy parzonej po turecku i mocnego espresso, jest lekka słodycz, kwaskowatość od ciemnych słodów, delikatna paloność. Kontrą jest tu likierowa gorzka czekolada i delikatne akcenty ziołowego chmielu. Pełnia średnia, wysycenie dość niskie, drobne. W afterteasie miłe rozgrzewanie alkoholu i palone ziarno kawy. Bardzo stylowy, angielski, mocno karmelowy porter, który dzięki sporej ilości kawy, mniej przyjemnej w aromacie, za to fajnie neutralizującej karmelowość w smaku...

I've been waiting to try this for a while now as they've always sold out wherever I went but I have to say, it's a little disappointing. Quite thin. Good taste but a bit weak in all other areas. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours is dark brown, almost black with medium tan head. Aroma of roasted nuts, dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, malts. Taste is coffee, cocoa, nuts, light sweet, with some acidic notes, but all well balanced. Dry, medium body, slick texture, flat carbonation. Nice one.
