Meantime London Porter

This offering, from the Meantime Brewing Company, hails from London, England. The porter comes in a most snazzy and voluminous corked 750mL bottle. It contains 6.5% alcohol and has a slightly roasted aroma that features notes of copper, cocoa, and coffee.

MLP begins smoothly with appealing mocha qualities and follows that up with a nicely balanced bitter crunch. A nicely crafted dark beer, it's full of booze without being oppressively strong tasting. Mellow is the word that most comes to mind when thinking about this brew. According to the label, this beer is intended to be an approximation of the traditional porters on offer during the 18th and 19th centuries. I heartily recommend this stuff.

MLP pours coffee-black with ruby highlights and topped with a thick tan head. Very attractive.

Rating: 9.0 out of 10.
