2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Meantime Coffee Porter has a medium, beige head, a dark brown appearance, minimal lacing, and visible tan yeast chunks floating about. The aroma is of lime, turned or semi-rancid ale, and cheap, off-brand coffee. Taste is the same, with a unpleasant acidic bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and slimy, and Meantime Coffee Porter finishes semi-dry and sour. RJT

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe (£1.85):
Great stuff from Meantime here, a very nice coffee porter that was full of flavour from the start with a lots of coffee present throughout, you wouldn’t really expect anything else though given the name. The beer proved an easy one to finish with a nice touch of bitterness right at the end to see things out.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bold, dark, & beautiful! It pours nearly black w/ a big foamy head that slowly fizzles into a lot of lacing. The aroma is dominated by the coffee w/ a hint of dark chocolate. The taste is similar w/ the chocolate notes upfront followed by some roasted bitterness from the coffee in the finish. The mouthfeel is quite nice for everything that’s going on here. Lovely porter!

Bottle. Aroma plain roasted, light plum. Single-dimensional. Clear dark ruby-brown colour. Good head. Taste is spent coffee, roasted, slightly harsh, no astringency though. Average tasting to me. Overall a good beer though.
