3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear medium to dark garnet brown with a 2 finger, creamy kakhi head that has great retention and leaves very nice lacing. Aroma is full of nutty light roast coffee, dark caramel, roast, toffee and very light fruity esters. Flavor is definitely coffee centered, but a bit more floral and fruity than the aroma, some caramel, roast and char, but the coffee is definitely in the forefront. Light to medium bodied, with a creamy, sticky entry, light, but fairly sharp carbonation and slightly more dry finish. Good, but not a great implementation of coffe in beer, it tasted more like a coffee sweetened with malt syrup than a beer brewed with coffee.

Botella de 33 cl en el Lupulo. Septiembre de 2013. Cuerpo ligero y color negro muy bien equilibrada se bebe fácilmente quedando un gusto bastante agradable e intenso a café y malta tostada. Buena para repetir o como primera elección

Light translucent mahogany brown. Big coffee nose, seriously almost on par with bourbon county. Thin, coffee and toasted and caramel malt. Good, but one dimensional and thin for my taste.

Much better than expected...Not a huge fan of Meantime, but this is a solid coffee porter. It is creamy, smooth, and nicely laced with their fairtrade coffee.

Pours dark black with a hint of amber, small head. Burnt coffee, toffee and vanilla nose. Taste of big burnt coffee, which becomes bitter towards the end. Has some dark chocolate notes, mint, roasted malts and spice. Light mouth feel and feels watery.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Láhev 330 ml. Velmi příjemné, silné aroma pražené kávy. Pěna je lehce nahnědlé barvy, jemná, nízká a průměrně držící. Barva samotného piva je temně hnědá. Chuť má silný kávový střed, okraje připomínají slazenou černou kávu a to celé finišuje příjemnou kávovou hořkostí. Toto pivo má opravdu autentické kávové aspekty, je to velmi příjemná kombinace kávy a porteru.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle into a nonic.
Pours a very dark brown with a half finger thick tan head. Very good head retention with just some stringy lacing.
Aroma has a fairly sharp metallic note, unfortunately, but underneath that, there are some milk chocolate notes along with a touch of light roast coffee. Some dark toffee and caramel as well.
Not metal in the flavor, thankfully, and the chocolate/toffee notes are very nice. Coffee is present but is much more subdued than I was expecting. Caramel is in the background and a very light, delicate, hop character just lending enough bitterness to balance the sweetness. The mouthfeel is probably the best feature of this beer. It is silky smooth with plenty of body.
Overall, a decent English Porter but way overpriced for what it is. I wish the coffee was a little more pronounced.

Great aroma and nice porter taste. The hint of Coffee ads to the beer without over powering to give you a nice nutty flavor. Not as good as their London Porter but a nice alternative if that’s not available.
