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.

Maklean (50) - Ontario, - APR 7, 2013
Pours dark ruby with an average creamy head that diminishes with no head. Light hops aroma are overpowered by heavy roasted coffee. Slick mouthfeel doesnt compensate for the strong astringency, but overall a good one-time beer.

katrinaez (1152) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Sweet aroma of coffee and raisins. Very carbonated with small bubbles of effervescent style. Dark brown color that’s a little translucent. Taste is a little watery upfront but a nice roasty aftertaste. Nice burn on the roof of your mouth. Bottle.

nybol (1264) - DENMARK - MAR 12, 2016
Har efter anbefaling fra bryggeriets hjemmeside prřvet den til en gang "bacons and egg"...Jo, lidt tidligt for řl, men skal det vćre sĺ lad det vćre denne her. Tydelige toner af kaffe (hvilket der sjovt nok ogsĺ er i), under middel kulsyre, og en god lang brćndt eftersmag.
