Cold fermented and lagered. Only available in 330ml bottles.
"Porter style Ale. Chocolate and beer! Are we Mad? Wed 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."

Desverger (10848) - Copenhagen, - OCT 31, 2012
(330ml bottle from Waitrose) Pours dark brown/black with a cream head and healthy lacing. Taste of caramel malts with notes of pleasing mocca/chocolate on the palate. Impressive stuff from my local Brewer.

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 zon 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 wyrb czekoladopodobny.

BeardedAvenger (668) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2017
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.

Dark brown with little beige head. Aroma is chocolate, moccha, brown sugar, lacto. Taste is quite bitter with only a little milk chocolate sweetness. A little spicy and not so smooth with still ok drinkability. Not bad.
