"Porter style Ale. Chocolate and beer! Are we Mad? We’d rather say passionate. We marry the soothing flavour of this complex malt barley grist with a hint of dark chocolate. This is a beer for your more self-indulgent moments. Great for lazy afternoons or long evenings, it is best served chilled with your feet up, watching the sun go down. Like we say – chilled."
"A silky-smooth suppertime beer, created using dark malts and chocolate. Pronounced vanilla notes fuse the chocolate and malts together to give a rich, warming, flavour that also works well as a complement to fruity desserts, summer puddings and autumn berries."

330 ml. bottle. Pretty cool bottle, pours ana lmost black colour with asamll head that goes away in a minute, levaing some lace. Smell is chocolate, or rather chocolate liquor cream, I can’t smell any other thing, even if chocolate is not really that pronounced. I also expected a thicker body. Taste is chocolate liquor cream, with notes of dark fruits, but again is somehow a faint one. It’s really pleasant, but it could be stronger in every sense. But I’ll try it again if i have the chance.

This is a very well crafted dark chocolate porter, but ofcorse it’s goid, it is meantime :) nice chocolate and cocoa flavour and a very slight coffee and vanilla aftertaste. This is a very good porter, up there with the best!

Clear dark brown colour. Aroma and flavour have an abundance of chocolate and vanilla. Not overly sweet though so it maintains a good level of drinkability.

dunekelbraun, elicht rötlich mit hellem Schaum. Geruch malzig schokoladig. Geschmack malzig, vollmundig, deutliche nicht übertriebene oder künstlich wirkende Schokoladenaromen. Sanftes Mundegefühl. Tolles Dessertbier.

Ik heb deze gedronken onder de naam Meantime Chocolate Porter maar wordt hier naar toe doorverwezen. Hij doet iig zijn naam eer aan je ruikt al de chocola als je wilt drinken. Schuimt goed met veel fijne koolzuur belletjes en blijft hierdoor redelijk goed aan het glas plakken. De schuim is dan ook niet meteen weg. Heeft een mooie donkere rode kleur van chocolade. Proeft naar chocola en ook wat naar koffie. Niet echt bitter maar dat hoeft ook niet bij zo’n expliciet biertje. Verrassend en overall de smaak van chocola is gewoon sterk aanwezig. Op internet valt te achterhalen dat het in 2007 als beste chocolade biertje ter wereld is verkozen. Nou dat geloof ik ook wel. Ook voor niet chocolade liefhebbers een goeie keuze. Het is gewoon een smaakvol biertje tenzij je er een allergie op chocola na houdt.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Wodnisty, nudny, acz mocno czekoladowy. Trochę jak taki wyrób czekoladopodobny.

33cl bottle at home. Pours a pitchblack colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of chocolate, light hop, dark hops, mocca, caramel. Taste is fairly sweet, light bitter with a medium bitter finish. Notes of caramel, roasted malts, dark malts, chocolate, caramel, mocca, coffee. Texture is fizzy, medium to light bodied with lively carbonation

Bottle at PoW, Farnborough. More coffee in the aroma than chocolate. Also a sour yeastyness. Dark cola brown. Thin off-white head. Initial bitterness. Then the a chocolate maltyness comes through. Light bodied. Watery. Prickly carbonation. Long astringent finish. Alright. Goes down easily enough but nothing special. Finish could be less astringent.

Bottle. Very bitter dark chocolate and roasted or burnt malts combine in an unusual beer. OK. Drinkable. (2008)
