Sample at a tasting. Dark with a medium head. Roasted malt and a pretty unpleasant tobacco flavor in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BB 08.2014, 0,33L bottle. Pours black with ruby highlights. The head is very light tan, it stays. The aroma is coffee, roasted malts, little metallic, some sweetness. Taste: coffee, roasted malt, tart, creamy, hints of fruits. Finish has some hints of dark chocolate bitterness, but is very short. Overall: rather similar to the chocolate porter, only this time it’s coffee instead of chocolate. It has the same general problem for me - it feels too light to really enjoy it.

Bottle. Pours brown with quickly settling tan head, moderate lacing. Aroma is coffee, toasted, toffee, and nutty. Flavor is sweet coffee, toasted, nutty, and caramelized malt, with a nutty, toffee malt finish. Soft carbonation, light body and smooth texture, perhaps a bit thin.

Bottle pours a dark dark brown with a decent tan head. The aroma is mild, mostly coffee. The taste is very very strong with the coffee, nice and malty.

Botella de 33 cl en el Lupulo. Septiembre de 2013. Cuerpo ligero y color negro muy bien equilibrada se bebe fácilmente quedando un gusto bastante agradable e intenso a café y malta tostada. Buena para repetir o como primera elección

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light translucent mahogany brown. Big coffee nose, seriously almost on par with bourbon county. Thin, coffee and toasted and caramel malt. Good, but one dimensional and thin for my taste.

Much better than expected...Not a huge fan of Meantime, but this is a solid coffee porter. It is creamy, smooth, and nicely laced with their fairtrade coffee.
