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.

Pours black/reddish with a quite decent yellow-ish head. Aroma from coffee and sugar. Flavour is carbonated coffe and brown sugar. Not very exciting. To qoute my girlfriend Bodil: This has an Irishcoffe finish.

Crazy! Like an iced coffee drink more than a beer. Coffee flavour itself a bit sharp though. Interesting, but I prefer a cuppa.

GarethYoung (1109) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 22, 2005
[bottle from sainsburys] Pours black with a moderate and lasting head. Nose is overwhelming coffee. Body is thin and bubbly , far too thin to support the heavy coffee taste. has a slightly bitter finish. If this were a coffee i would give it 20/20 for having alcohol in it, but as its a beer i give it 9/20 for having nothing but coffee in it.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - MAY 21, 2005
Dark brown, dissipating head. Aroma mostly coffee, hint of chocolate and malt, no hops evident. I didn’t enjoy the mouthfeel, seemed thin an un-beerlike. Roasty finish, in a cold black instant coffee kind of way.

RichardGretton (4229) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2005
Bottled. Plain light black beer with a brown hue. The aroma is coffee and chocolate and the flavour is initially weak coffee then strong coffee. Overall it is a coffee drink therefore it does would it says on the label, whether it is a beer that will stand the test of time I don’t know.
