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. sebsky (276) - ENGLAND - SEP 14, 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. The_Osprey (8717) - 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) radassace (412) - 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.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Palony, wodnisty, popiołowy, pustka na finiszu. Towey1989 (3169) - 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 (3352) - 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)
