3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
[cask at Cloisters Bar, Edinburgh] Dark ruby red pour, thin white head. Coffee on the aroma, soft rather than harsh, with some sweetish caramel on the nose. Although initially quite thin, the coffee flavour rounds off really quite nicely – there’s some roast in there, before a sweet, mocha finish. Similar to the recently released Cromarty Brewed Awakening, I thought. This is Barney’s best beer so far, by a country mile (although I’ve yet to try the Capital Porter at the time of this review)

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2012 On cask at Cloisters. Pours a dark brown colour with a thick head. Aroma of roasty malt, coffee and and chocolate with similar flavours. A little dry to finish. Moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Also had this in bottle as Papua Coffee Porter from DrinkMonger. Quite drinkable with lingering roasty malt and caramel. The coffee is subtle and the bitterness isn’t overpowering. Tasty.
