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.

SamP01 (515) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 6, 2013
A dark espresso with a bit of a red tinge on the pour with a large lasting tan head, very good head retention and lacing. Aroma is of dark roasted caramel and espresso malt. Taste same as aroma with some mild espresso bean bitter notes. A medium body with a slightly sticky and oily texture, smooth drinking with , mild carbonation. Sweet caramel and cacao espresso malt flavors on the tongue and a lingering mild espresso bitterness on the end for balance. A well made, flavorful and enjoyable after dinner drink.
