Our first formulation of this beer was the first UK brewed beer to carry the Fairtrade logo, and although we have reformulated it to create an even better blend better the malt and roast coffee flavours and can no longer get enough coffee in each bottle to qualify for Fairtrade status, we are still using the same Faitrade Araba Bourbon beans from Rwandas Abuhuzamugambi Co-operative. At the Meantime Brewing Co we love flavour, so it wasnt exactly difficult for us to see how the scents and aromas of coffee and barley would create a perfect match like just like mint and lamb, toffee and banana, peaches and cream, peanut butter and jam. Serve lightly chilled with as many chocolate truffles as your conscience allows.

Poured into a snifter from a 330ml bottle. Pours dark ruby with medium tan head. Aroma is a nice combination of coffee, roasted malts, earth and notes of chocolate. Taste is very pleasant coffee with earthy notes, medium bitter-sweet. Medium body with medium carbonation with a long slightly bitter finish. Very nice porter.

Har efter anbefaling fra bryggeriets hjemmeside prvet den til en gang "bacons and egg"...Jo, lidt tidligt for l, men skal det vre s lad det vre denne her. Tydelige toner af kaffe (hvilket der sjovt nok ogs er i), under middel kulsyre, og en god lang brndt eftersmag.
