COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - MAR 7, 2010
Poured a jet black with medium thick tan head that lingered to mid-glass and left some lacing. Aroma is strong black coffee with a hint of choclate. Mouthfeel a tad on the thin side, but somewhat tingly, and the taste picks up the choclate coffee of the nose, but to alesser degree. Alcohol never does make itself known, and the finish is of medium duration and okay.

Pours very dark brown with a big creamy and steady dark tan head. Rich aroma of coffee, toffee, cream, bread crust, prunes, a hint of raisins and spice. Taste: medium to high sweetness with light roasty acidity/bitterness. Medium body and carbonation, creamy texture, almost no stickiness. A very drinkable porter with a rich aroma and great looks!

Poured into a snifter from a 330ml bottle. Pours dark ruby with medium tan head. Aroma is a nice combination of coffee, roasted malts, earth and notes of chocolate. Taste is very pleasant coffee with earthy notes, medium bitter-sweet. Medium body with medium carbonation with a long slightly bitter finish. Very nice porter.

freretoc (1584) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 26, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la maison, couleur noire, mousse et effervescence presqu’inexistante. Nez café et malt grillé. En bouche attaque café, moka et café frappé, pas super top en fin de bouche limite astringente. Un côté café du lendemain matin pas très agréable.

Har efter anbefaling fra bryggeriets hjemmeside prøvet den til en gang "bacons and egg"...Jo, lidt tidligt for øl, men skal det være så lad det være denne her. Tydelige toner af kaffe (hvilket der sjovt nok også er i), under middel kulsyre, og en god lang brændt eftersmag.
