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.

thebeertourist (4660) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2006
Bottle. Almost black with a big beige creamy head. Potent roasted coffee aroma. Good, fresh roasted coffee flavours. Good bitterness, including some bitter chocolate. Sparkling and creamy mouthfeel. This is good stuff

Skinnyviking (6383) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2006
Bottle. Light brown creamy and lasting head. Black body. Strong black coffee aroma. First impression smooth and sweet coffee flavor, later an acidic bitterness, not unpleasant.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2006
A pitch black beer with a slight reddish shine when held against a light source, witha dense brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of both coffee and chocolate - with the bitterness that both both bring. The flavor is sweet yet bitter - the bitterness coming from the coffee, which also lends notes of chocolate - dark bitter desert chocolate, more than coming from the hops and the dark roasted malt. But the flavor also has notes of roasted malt and rye bread. The bitterness makes the end dry, and the coffee notes lingers for a long time. Nice.

MortenGrud (6) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2006 does not count
Aroma: Freshly ground coffee beans and cold coffee. Perhaps some vanilla? Appearance: pitch black, light brown head that fades away. Flavour: Freshly ground coffee, somewhat bitter, a bit of sweetness. Body: Medium (should have been fuller I think). Texture: Nothing special, should have been more creamy. Carbonation is lively, should have been softer. Finish: Like a good cup of coffee.

Theis (12769) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2006
Just like having your favorit cup of coffee - but now its cold - Black. Brown head, creamy, goes with toffee.

henrik (41) - Århus, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2006
Pitch black, brown foam. Aroma of freshly ground coffee and cold coffee. A hint of vanilla. Very bitter flavour - a sharp, almost unpleasent bitterness. Too much carbonation -- more than the medium body of the beer can handle anyway. But now to the point that makes this a good beer anyway: It has a very long finish of very good coffee!

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Dark brown with a brown head. Strong coffee aroma. Big coffee flavor. Too simplistic with little to compliment the coffee flavor. The body could be punched up also.
