3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours brown, not as dark as I thought it might be. Think full city roast versus french roast on this one. Translucent, somewhat thick light brown foam. Aroma is dark chocolate and malts more than it is coffee. Tastes like dark chocolate, "bready" malts, banana (it’s there!),and hints of dark roast coffee. Palate is a bit too cloying for my taste -- almost strikes an elegant balance, but it’s just a bit off. Tasty, but not my favorite porter by a fair stretch.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
As a whole, the English tend not to be as intense with coffee infusion as we are across the pond. While I love tasting lots of roasted bean in the glass, sometimes a lighter touch is good. Meantime’s Coffee Porter pours brown and shows a reddish hue when held to direct light. It has a lovely fresh coffee aroma that’s earthy, fruity, and (thanks to the Arabica Bourbon beans) a bit boozy. The coffee notes are more mild in the flavor but you won’t forget it’s there. The Porter base is extremely tasty, too. Some chocolate and vanilla flavors coming out of the roasted barley. Feel is rich and creamy. Hard to beat this as an after-dinner option.
