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.

This one is pitch black with a nice, light brown head. My nose is met by a distinct coffee aroma, and after a while I also sense other notes of roasted malt and a weak hint of smoke. The same goes for the flavour. This must be the ideal beer for a coffee lover. It was a fun, nice and exciting experience.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2007 (Bottled) Hazy, dark reddish brown with a medium, tanned, lacy and partly lasting head. Dryish, quite delicious coffee-liquour/coffee beans aroma. Dry, slightly ashy flavor - much like mocca-filled chocolates. Medium-bodied, slightly thin palate with medium carbonation. Surprisingly pleasant and interesting. I think you could call this a "special brew" for a reason.

KnutAlbert (6386) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2007
Bottle. Dark ale, thick and creamy milk chocolate head. Lot of lovely coffee flavour. It’s a nice coffee, flavour, mind you, sweet and milky, but it overwhelms the porter totally. But there are afternoons when I want bot a beer and a coffee...

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2007
Another decent ale from meantime. Aroma is dry coffee, some biscuit malts come through at times and some strange but good hopy notes. Taste is similar however perhaps a little overly carbonated.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of brown sugar and coffee. Flavor is chocolate, vanilla and more coffee leading to a dry, slightly dusty end. Smooth mouth feel. The finish is slightly bitter and with a pleasant coffee aftertaste. A very simple beer, which does what it does really good. Marvellous!

Good, but seconds lingering, yellow-brown head; dark red-brown beer. Pure freshly milled coffee - with chervil for...? this is pure cappucino without the cream: freshly ground coffee, bitter cacao, and carbonation giving a balancing acidity. Very slick, smooth beer, creamy texture. I’m not a coffee drinker, but this gets extra points for originality. Thanks to Mark Dorber.

Dark, reddish beer with slight tanned head. Coffee, chocolate, hay and malty. Medium body and beautiful balance.
