Avaialable in 330ml bottles only. Cold fermented and lagered.
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.

Looks exactly the same as the chocolate porter. Coffee in the aroma, also dark chocolate. Nice dry and bitter coffee taste. I like it a bit better than the chocolate version.

Erzengel (3441) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2014
Schöner süßliche Porter-Geruch, dunkle Schokolade. Der Antrunk ist süffig-dickflüssig. Schöne cremige Schoko-Note. Im Hauptteil vollmundig, dunkel Schokolade mit einem Haus Espresso. Schön samtig-cremig. Der Nachgeschmack ist schön röstmalzig-angenehm, süßlich-trocken und rund abgewogen. Die tollen Schoko-Espresso-Noten halten sich schön lange auf der Zunge.
Tolles Bier, bei dem aber von dem Kaffee nicht zu viel zu spüren ist. 15/12/14/15

Tap@drinkbaar. Black. Roasted coffee nose, dry roasted barley. Some herbs and capers. Lightish body, dry, bit thin. Really good Flavourful though. Lots of ashy roastedness. Sort of ok, but I like roasty beers softer.
