2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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)

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 bottle purchased when leaving the St Albans BF ’06 and enjoyed at home on a Saturday evening after dinner. Very nice bottle design! Pours a rocky brownish foam over a black red-tinged body. The foam vanished to almost nothing after a while. Well rounded aroma of dark chocolate with a noticeable touch of licorice. Taste of roasted coffee beans supported by a few notes of peppermint and a discreet yeasty bitterness in the ending. Crispy and a bit thin mouthful (11.11.2006).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy, dark brown with a big brownish head. Interesting and quite sweet aroma with roasted notes. I have a hard time picking up the coffee though. Flavour is sweet, again with roasted notes. But unlike the aroma, the coffee is very present here. Also has a sourish touch. Bitter finish with lingering roasted notes. Remote notes of hops. A nice beer, but a bit too sweet in both aroma and flavour. 03-11-06.

33 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Black colour with a little white head. Great aroma of mild roasted coffee. Very soft flavour of coffee and coffee, if you like coffee you’ll like this one. Hard to think of anything else than coffee.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2008 Bottle from Waitrose. Black coffee in colour with a malty brown head. Looks especially elegant in the appropriate Meantime glass. Nose of espresso and malts with hints of cinnamon and traces of alcohol. Woody taste of rich, roasted black coffee. Bitter finish of organic dark chocolate. Brutal in strength and drinkable only in small doses. Perfect with champagne truffles! Further proof that this is no ordinary brewery. London should be proud.
Bottle, again from Waitrose. Deep, reddish amber in colour with a nice beige froth of head. Nose of sweet malt, chocolate, caramel and roasted coffee. Smells like a candy bar and tastes much like one also, actually, I often have a Twix and a coffee at work and that’s exactly it. Malty and chocolatey with some caramel and a bitter slightly hoppy coffee finish. Wasn’t expecting to like this as much second time around but it’s lovely! A slight jiggle of the numbers sees me up a point but I think i’m slightly biased. The Twix and coffee combo is something my nan instilled in me at an early age, so here’s to you Nan, cheers!

Black with a medium tan head. Lots of coffee & roasted malt on the nose. Taste is also mainly coffee with some black chocolate. Mouthfeeel was a bit surprising with some astringency as well some ashes. Not unpleasant, just unexpected. An average coffee stout, which is still a good beer. Gotta love those little Meantime bottles, I always feel like rubbing them until a drunk genie comes out.
