RichTheVillan (2510) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2012
Retro reviews from Spring 2012 Wetherspoons Beer festival; brown pour only a mild about of coffee and quite watery in mouth feel.

WeissGary (285) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 19, 2012
Guest tap. Pale-ish black body, thin foamy yellow head, soft tasting, small hints of coffee... not particularly strong. This is a sessionable beer, itís ok to drink but there isnít much going on.

theatmosphere (50) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2012
This is pretty good, but could do with just a hint more coffee. Everything about this beer is very subtle, perhaps a tad too subtle. Itís easy to drink though and I enjoy having it occasionally.

wimpyjoe (3580) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2012
Mild tasting porter with a good nose, but only the slightest of coffee tastes.

jaghana (3754) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - MAY 27, 2012
On tap @Edinburgh airport, a dark amber beer with small creamy head. Nose is on roasted grain and coffee. Aroma is expresso like long roasted and chocolate note. Some relative sourness which grows on aftertaste.

stravale (2062) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAY 21, 2012
Cask @ Bennetís Bar, Morningside, Edinburgh 160512
Chestnut brown, clear, frothy off white head, good lacing.
Aroma - dark caramel malts, soft coffee, bit of chocolate, no caley íDeucharsí malts
Taste - Dark caramel malts, soft light coffee, slight touch of Camp essence, touch of the caley malts but not that noticeable, some soft fruity malts, touch of bitter earthy hops
Palate - soft carb, thin to medium body. Finish as main flavour, slight touch of bitter metal
Overall - One of the better beers from Caledonian

mr_h (2757) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAY 16, 2012

prawlie (1112) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
Pint at the Back of Beyond in Reading. Very dark red/brown, with a short lived bubbly head. Pungent malt vinegar aroma. Tastes as expected, but more coffee than chocolate. Somewhat sour and a bit of a chore to drink.
