Bottle from ABM. Opaque dark brown/black color, small brown head. Intensive aroma has cocoa, tobacco, dark malts and bread. Medium bodied, very good smooth full palate. Tobacco, cocoa, licorice, dark malts in the flavor. Light bitterness, milky notes. Excellent and certainly has the fingerprints of Kernel.

Theydon_Bois (11072) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2012
Cask at the 13th Egham BF @ EUSC - 15/11/12. Mid black with a bubbly tan head that thins towards the edge then retains. Nose comprises roast malts, molasses, hops and a little chocolate. Tastes of roast malts, bitter chocolate, liqourice, hint of coffee and a little booze. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, smooth on the palate, leading to a roasted finish. Decent.

330ml bottle - shared by rosenberg - thanks
Nice soft cakey roast aroma, a little sharp too. Black, and a brief tan head. Stale stale stale coffee grounds in the taste - a really dark roast, but fortunately not ashy. Dry and a littly ashy in the finish. Biting bitter and burnt finish. Gone too much in the burnt direction for me, drinkability ruined. Don’t do that.

pivnizub (9161) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle(@Kris Wines):Very, very deep brown coloured with a small and stable tanned head, moderate dry coffeish nose, completed by dried fruits, dark malt and a tinge of Worchester Sauce; robust dry bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied and astonishingly very soft; lingering sweet-bitter chocolatey and dark-fruity and roasty finish. Great beer… (English beer #500!!!)

Scopey (8007) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2012
Cask at the 13th Egham Beer Fest. It pours near black with a small light tan head. The nose is charcoal, roasted malt, rich coffee, nut and faint smoke. The taste is roasted malt, earth, nut, toast, charcoal, coffee, bitter chocolate, faint sourness, dark fruit and caramel with a dry, bitter finish. Medium-full body, soft carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Tasty and well balanced. Pretty delicious!
