UPDATED: FEB 10, 2012 Poured deep, deep red/mahogany with a nice two-finger off-white head that retained well and left very nice lace. Strong roasted coffee aromas with plenty of semi-sweet chocolate to back it up. Toss in some dark cherries. raisins and toast to create a complex, well-balanced profile. Flavors follow, with the coffee taking enter stage, the chocolate more subdued and the dark fruit coming forward.

Very pleasant aroma of chocolate and cocoa. It’s a clear, dark brown color beer, with massive, beige head which is formed from rather big bubbles. Great lacing. Beer is flat, almost no carbonation, it’s highly drinkable. The taste in this beer is growing. Starting with light and calm and it ends with nice bitterness, and a bit of coffee in the aftertaste. It’s a good beer.

W barwie ciemne, rubinowe. Piana nikła, słabo się osadza. Aromat słodki, słodowy, zdominowany przez palone i czekoladowe nuty. W smaku wyczuwalny słód, słodycz z przyjemnym czekoladowym finiszem. Piwo nie zalega i jest bardzo pijalne. Warte polecenia.

750ml bottle served in a pint glass. Dark brown with a light beige head. Aroma is almost non-existent (although in fairness I had come from a DIPA). Mouthfeel is thin for a porter but ok and the flavours are sweet orientated with little bitterness (again I came from a DIPA). The main flavour I was able to pick out unfortunately was smoky bacon and no matter how I tried I was unable to get past it. This was a return to the beer as about 10 years ago before I was able to drink beer (they were all too bitter) I quite enjoyed this - along with Samichlaus. I think the reason has become evident as the sweetness and lack of bitterness in both beers is childlike and not well balanced but a good introduction to beer in general.

750ml Bottle from Whol Foods, Giffnock (£5.06):
This one was quite a nice beer and one that I’m actually glad came in the larger, 750ml bottle as it gave me extra time to fully appreciate the beer and enjoy it as it went down. The beer was a very easy on to drink thanks in no small part to the excellent balance of the beer but also because of the smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel and the touches of sweetness that appeared throughout. Definitely a beer that is well worth picking up if your lucky enough to stumble across it but it’s not a stand out Meantime offering, just a solid and highly drinkable beer.
