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.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, - SEP 17, 2009
Bottle 370ml. Poured dark ruby with an averaged sized, dense, frothy, beige head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was dominated by instant coffee and coco powder with toasted malts, dusty carob chocolate, caramel, currents, earthy/woody notes and hints of nuts. Flavor was a light earthy hop bitterness with roasted malts, toast, coco powder, chocolate coated coffee beans, carob chocolate and a dry finish. Well hidden alcohol content. Medium bodied with medium carbonation, a dry toasty mouthfeel and a good length finish.

sudomorph (490) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2014
11.2fl oz bottle. Pours a clear, deep, ruby/brown with an off white, film of a head. Aroma is deep with smooth notes of coffee, and dark chocolate. Taste is balanced. Mild coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted malts with a short, coffee bitter aftertaste. Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a slightly dry finish. Very drinkable. Overall a great coffee porter. The coffee is there but not overdone like a lot of others. Very drinkable.

Geruch geht krass Richtung Zartbitterschokolade und Röstgerste. Im Geschmack leicht sauer, zusätzlich Aschegeschmack. Kaum Bitter. Schmeckt wie ein Aschenbecher.

DocJitsu (826) - Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2014 Pours a clear, ruby-tinted brown color with a tan head. Pungent, pleasant, freshly ground coffee aroma. Medium body. Wet texture. Coffee flavor up front, but bitters a bit too much and too quickly.

Dark brown pour. Dark coffee in nose, but taste had strange iron and pepper in it. Appropriate body, just not too great.

Interesting coffee flavors. Tastes like a darker roast. The head when poured was less than one finger. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
