Meantime London Stout pours a very dark deep mahogany colour, with just the strong aroma of burnt barley, coffee and malt.
In the mouth the Meantime London Stout has a strong coffee and roasted malts taste, with some cocoa and darker malts coming together to give a pleasant taste to the beer. There is a hint of bitterness at the end that is quite dry. Carbonation is medium to low.
Whilst this is a very pleasant Stout, nothing is particularly outstanding about it, and it seems to have been softened and made milder to cater for the mass market. If you are new to stout, or want something that doesn’t really challenge the tastes then this is a good Stout. For something a bit harder in taste, some of the other Meantime Stouts and Porters will serve you better.
Meantime Brewery produce a range of beers from their London Brewery, and I look forward to trying some of the others. They even offer Brewery visits so you can look round and learn all about the brewing history they have.
