COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cold fermented and lagered. Only available in 330ml bottles.
"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."

Very nice. Aroma of chocolate cherry liquers. Taste is nice rich beer but smoothed out with the chocolate. Christmassy - or am I only writing that because it’s nearly Christmas? Very nice to drink - although I imagine it’s not something you want to drink all the time. And I was worried it might be disgusting and I’d have to throw the rest of the bottle away.

330ml bottle. Pours dark cherry with a beige head. Nose is like a room temperature hot chocolate with some roasted malts. Medium mouth feel. Lots of chocolate. milk chocolate. Perhaps a bit too much. Roasted malts, milkshake and milky coffee and a slight bitter finish on the taste. Decent.

Enjoyed a bottle at Bistro L’Autre Oeil, Aylmer. Pours a thin brownish foamy head but goes away after a bit. Has a very dark brown appearance. Ok lacing. Nice mild aromas of chocolate and dark roasted malts and light vanilla notes. Flavours of mocha, chocolate and roasted malts. Some notes of caramel and a bit of vanilla in the finish. Medium retention. Wet mouthfeel, light creaminess. Very good. :)

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.

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.
