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.

Clear deep-brown body with a very thin off-white head. Absolutely wonderful aroma of coffee, chocolate, and toffee. The palate is a bit weak, but very smooth. The flavor, although great, doesn’t quite live up to the aroma. Starts sweet with flavors of coffee and cream, chocolate, and toffee. There’s a slight bitter coffee finish. Nice brew!

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.

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.

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.
