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.

330 ml bottle of Meantime Coffee Porter; Nose of coffee, roastiness, and cocoa; medium brown with a small tan head; flavor of strong roasted coffee, with some chocolate and caramel notes. Decent coffee stout (or is that porter?)

Bottled. Dark ruby red/black colour with mediumsized white head. Aroma is roasted coffee beans. Flavour is roasted coffee beans with some slight acidic sour hints. In some kind of perverse way I like this very much.

NachlamSie (2832) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Bottle split with Tronraner. Pours a dark brown with amber tints and a fair tan head. The aroma has plenty of coffee. The coffee is nicely acidic and aromatic with plenty of chocolate/caramel as well. Mouthfeel is a little thin for a porter, but again, I think it works well with this type of beer. It reminds me of iced coffee. Great milky, chocolaty malts for balance. Really nice drink, and being a coffee fan, I particularly enjoyed it.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - MAY 20, 2007
330 mL bottle, as Meantime Coffee Porter, split with NachlamSie. Pours reddish amber with retentive beige head. The aroma is smooth coffee, a little bit of chocolate, and a stray malty tone. The flavor is much like chocolate covered coffee beans. I must say, I like the coffee selection here. Acidic but smooth, it complements the malt profile very well. Chocolate and caramel come around in there, too, and the finish is roasty and slightly bitter. Milky sweetness comes out in the aftertaste. There is a ton of coffee in this brew, but I gotta say I like it.

From Badgerben. Meantime has made one of the best coffee beers I have ever tasted. The aroma is all coffee, but it is pleasant and not harsh, just the right balance. Flavor has just a hint of mint and more coffee, but here again the balance is excellent. This is a really good coffee beer.

Dark brown with off white creamy head. Strong roaste chocolate/coffee aroma. Soft carbonation - light thin body. Chocolate, vanilla & coffee flavor mainly. Drinkable & pleasant! Light bitter end!

badgerben (4510) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Dark brown color with no head. Aroma smells like an iced pot of fresh coffee. Holy god... this beer makes no bones about being a coffee beer. It is pure coffee, plain and simple, with a little mint bitterness. Out-freaking-standing!

Skyview (5272) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Bottle shared by Badgerben. Pours a dark, near opaque, brown brew with an off white fast dissolving head. Aroma is mostly rich dark coffee and espresso. Taste is cold coffee with a bitter aftertaste. If coffee is your preferred palate you will not be disappointed.

As the beer pours, it looks dark red and extremely thin coming out of the bottle. It becomes a dark brown in the glass with a thin off white head. Aroma is dominated by what seems like quality coffee. Flavor is a nice rich roasted coffee flavor without much else going except maybe a hint of coffee. I already thought the normal Meantime Porter had a lot of coffee hints so this one is sort of over the top. Not bad and seems to give a bit of a caffeine boost.
