laiti (8513) - Tampere, - FEB 15, 2013
50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 23.04.2009
Aroma has coffee, roasted notes and some licorice. Flavour is rather malty and slightly sour with coffee, some semi‐dark chocolate and licorice. A bit watery palate. Decent.

nocheinbier (63) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2017 From 330 bottle. dark brown in colour, with very thin head. Aroma of roasted malt, port and dark fruits. Light body and a sweet bitter taste with a little bit of coffee and dark chocolate at the end of it. I was a bit disappointed with this stout.

jooilakon (277) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2017
Bottle 330 ml from Waitrose. Aromas are the usual: coffee, chocolate, caramel notes. Pours a black beer with a short-lived cream beige head. Sweet and highly carbonated (too much) with notes of coffee, possibly subtle caramel. OK but not more. Needs some improvements.

2.9
The_Osprey (9102) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2017
August 2017 - 330ml bottle at home in Richmond as ’Meantime London Stout’, 4.5%, BB Oct 2018. Opaque black, foamy light brown head. Aroma is milky, light lactose, milk chocolate, bourbon biscuit. Body is frothy, tingly carbonation. Taste is a touch thin, light metallics, bourbon biscuits, soft bitterness, little yeasty. Not fussed on this one. Perhaps it was better before Meantime went macro. It’s OK, and it’s cheap. (6-4-4-3-12=2.9)

3.5
radassace (414) - SCOTLAND - JUL 9, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Nose is roasted malt, brown bread, cherry, milk chocolate and a touch of coffee. Light mouth feel, more like a dark lager or Schwarzbier. Taste is light roasted malt, milk chocolate and some coffee. Refreshing and very drinkable. Tasty.

2.1
Korcz (3390) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 19, 2017
Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Palony, wodnisty, popiołowy, pustka na finiszu.

2.9
Towey1989 (3257) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2017
Bottle. Pours a deep brown colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark fruits, some liquorice, slight coffee, a little chocolate and subtle cardboard. Taste of roasted malts, dark fruits, some dark berries, slight liquorice, a hint of coffee and subtle wet cardboard. Light bodied, moderate carbonation but a watery texture. A dry, roasted bitterness in the finish. Was expecting a stout but it does show more characteristics of a schwarzbier. Roasted malts and spicy fruit but with a subtle cardboard taste you get from lagers. It’s not unpleasant but the body’s watery. Below average.

john44 (3392) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2017
Bottle. Dark Brown with Reddish tinge. Overly carbonated - looks & mouthfeel like Coca-Cola. Strong coffee aroma. Malty; roast malts, bitter coffee, liquorice, dark chocolate, caramel. Sour fruity (berries). Quite thin; lacks body. Roast malty throughout with sour bitter edge. Long dry roasty aftertaste. (2009-05)

Tayeth (677) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2017
Sehr schokoladiger und karamelliger Geruch. Geschmack nach dunklen Beeren und Aschenbecher.

3.2
Idiosynkrasie (7952) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2017
500ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with small to average, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Roasty, dark malty aroma, hints of coffee, underlying, cautious hints of blueberry. Taste is roasty dark malty, slightly bitter, subtle sweetness, fruity hints of blueberry and bramble; minimally metallic finish.
