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.

freretoc (1686) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 26, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la maison, couleur noire, mousse et effervescence presqu’inexistante. Nez café et malt grillé. En bouche attaque café, moka et café frappé, pas super top en fin de bouche limite astringente. Un côté café du lendemain matin pas très agréable.

nybol (1431) - DENMARK - MAR 12, 2016
Har efter anbefaling fra bryggeriets hjemmeside prøvet den til en gang "bacons and egg"...Jo, lidt tidligt for øl, men skal det være så lad det være denne her. Tydelige toner af kaffe (hvilket der sjovt nok også er i), under middel kulsyre, og en god lang brændt eftersmag.

Bottiglia 33 cl. Marrone scuro con poca schiuma. Aroma di caffè e malto tostato, idem in bocca. Corpo medio - basso. Non male ma mi aspettavo di più per essere una porter.

Biroholik (876) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 11, 2016
Kolor : Cudowny wiśniowo-rubinowy. Piwo jest klarowne.
Piana: Fantastyczna! Beżowa, bujna, wysoka. Struktura piany głównie drobno pęcherzykowa, gdzieniegdzie pęka tworząc średnie i duże dziury.
Zapach: Ciemne owoce, kawa, czerwone wiśnie, czereśnie. Jest też słodki karmel i toffi. Kolejnym w wyczuwalnych aromatów jest aromat zbożowy w postaci palonego słodu.
Smak: W smaku spodziewałem się dominacji kawy w każdym aspekcie-w końcu jak sama nazwa wskazuje - Coffee Porter. Tutaj spotkało mnie miłe zaskoczenie. Kawa była ale daleko na końcu. W smaku pojawiła się bardzo smaczna nuta wiśniowa. Wiśnia ta mieszała się przyjemnie z mleczną czekoladą jak w słynnych czekoladkach z nadzieniem wiśniowym. Prócz tego były czereśnie i maliny. Goryczka raczej niska. Minimalnie kwaskowe.
Wysycenie: Średnie. Po nalaniu masa drobnym bąbelków na dnie szkła.
Podsumowanie:
Smaczne piwo! Bardzo pasowała mi tutaj na wiśnia w czekoladzie! Mniam! Aromat i smak czerwonych owoców a na finiszu kawowa goryczka. Dobór składników - perfekcyjny. Bardzo dobre piwo i wysoce pijalne.
