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.

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.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2006
Bottle. Dark red. Dirty head. Big coffee aroma, roasty. Coffee dominates taste, quite dry. Palate is medium. Roasty. The coffee flavour reminds me of instant coffee.. but it works surpsrisingly well. Shared a small bottle by four, sufficient.

madsberg (10608) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2006
Bottled. Dark reddish brown coloured. Brown fluffy head. Aroma of cold coffee, fruitsweetness and dusty caramel. Flavour is light roasty and has notes of light brunt coffee. Again quite dusty. Is quite balanced and subdued in the aroma and flavours. Medium bodeid. Dry roasty end. Overall a good coffee touch in this very drinkable brew.

yngwie (14904) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2006
Bottled. Dark, reddish beer with aroma of coffee and chocolate. The flavor is way too coffee-ish for my taste, one should probably have some food to go with it. Medium mouthfeel. Intensely coffee-ish finish. (061124)

Hansen (7328) - Assentoft, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2006
Dark brown and clear. Lasting, beige head. Aroma like sweet, milky coffee. The flavor has a more pure coffee flavor. Aroma has perhaps also some cinnamon-notes.

Finn (4681) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2006
Bottle 0,33l. Almost black with a mocca coloured head. Strong aroma of - coffee. Taste of coffee. Dry bitter aftertaste making you think that you have just drunk a cup of cold coffee. Too unvaried to become a good beer.
