UPDATED: DEC 8, 2017 Review from memory, from when Wetherspoon used to carry the range. Unfortunately no tasting notes, hopefully will get the chance to return and update the review to something more useful. Travlr (26277) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 23, 2017
Bottle. Dark brown color light beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate subtle coffee. Taste is sweetish coffee, subtle dark fruit, silky mouthfeel. Tasty. LazyPyro (1686) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2017
From a 750ml bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with a stable beige head. Aroma: roasted malts, some chocolate, caramel, vanilla. Taste: roasted malts with a hint of smoke, sweet chocolate and caramel malts, vanilla, light bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation, oily texture. Pretty solid porter, very easy drinking you could quickly finish the 750ml by yourself. beton (700) - Tarnobrzeg, POLAND - MAY 6, 2017

A surprisingly good porter from a 750ml bottle. It was chilled and drunk after a hard day working in the garden and it was very thirst quenching. A lovely flavour of toasted malt, coffee and possibly some soy sauce. It wasn’t too thick for a porter and it went down a treat. You can see why all those hard-working London market porters loved this type of beer at the end of the day.

Bottle. Malty; espresso coffee, plain chocolate, roasted biscuity-malt, caramel, toffee, vanilla. Very coffee and chocolate. Spicy and slightly smoky. Fruity; hint of dark fruits. Hoppy; slightly earthy hops. Sweetish roast malty throughout. Dry finish. Nice porter! (2011-01-08) Iznogud (4533) - CROATIA - JAN 11, 2017
Bottle, 750 ml from Pivoteka. Courtesy of JFK10000 shared with him and Miro. Pours brown with beige head. Roasted malts, some coffee, smoke, bitter finish. Light sweetness, some bitterness in finish. Light to medium bodied. Oily. Bit bland, thin, expected more. wheresthepath (2407) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2016
Bottle at the Cerise Bar, Reading. Deep ruby with a thin beige head. Smoke, fruit and chocolate in the whiff. On first taste it’s pleasantly smoky and chocolatey; on further tastes this turns to sweet and rather fake chocolate and coffee, rather like a Quality Street coffee cream. There’s a hint of rubber in the background to and it’s rather thin. Like many Meantime brews it’s OK but fails to deliver it’s full potential. Which is a bit of a shame given how expensive it was in this bar- not a place I’d ever normally choose myself, but as it was a friend’s birthday I had little choice in the matter.

Sample from a 750ml bottle, thanks to the Pivoteka guys. Brownish body. Smells like mead really, fermented honey, dark malt, oily. Light soft taste, mead-like again in a way (so, notes of fermented honey), soft malty backbone, dry finish. OK. Not thrilling, not world shattering but a solid beer.

375ml bottle, on sale at my local for a whopping $2.50. Brown pour with a slight light tan head. Nose is roasted malt. Taste is pretty good, light body with a large amount of roasted, burnt and slightly smoked malt. Finishes dry with a malty bitterness.
