It's ok as far as coffee infused porters go. We definitely do things bigger and bolder on this side of the pond. Not saying that's a good or bad thing. Just saying our coffee beers are a lot more in your face with coffee flavors.

Pours like dark water. Smells of coffee at first, but then get some sort of smell that is just off. Taste is not pleasant, not going to be able to finish my portion of the bottle. Feel is what you would expect based off the look. Overall not good.

Meantime Coffee Porter has a medium, beige head, a dark brown appearance, minimal lacing, and visible tan yeast chunks floating about. The aroma is of lime, turned or semi-rancid ale, and cheap, off-brand coffee. Taste is the same, with a unpleasant acidic bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and slimy, and Meantime Coffee Porter finishes semi-dry and sour.

This is a highly underrated beer in my opinion. Pours a dark brown, with some brownish red hues coming through the glass when held up to the light. I do notpickup a lot of coffee in the smell, more of the roasted malt. The taste however is where I was blown away. The coffee was present, but did not dominate. At first, I tasted a nice burnt caramel that blended into a malty seetness. Towards the end of the glass, I noticed a nice biscuity/toasty flavor. I was very impressed with this beer, and will pick it up again.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe (£1.85):
Great stuff from Meantime here, a very nice coffee porter that was full of flavour from the start with a lots of coffee present throughout, you wouldn't really expect anything else though given the name. The beer proved an easy one to finish with a nice touch of bitterness right at the end to see things out.
