GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 18, 2013
500mL thanks to Leighton! Pours a murky deep brown Medium foam. Great tan lacing. Nose is dusty cocoa, big bitter chocolate. Taste is is quite bitter and waxy dark chocolate, but the body is light. Feels like 4-5% but the flavor isn’t watery or weak. Nice. Long bitter, slightly acidic finish.

Fantastic aroma with dark fruits, dark chocolate and coffee. The taste however is not that fantastic. The flavour is dominated by a sour coffee taste.

VsXsV (2442) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with small to medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, licorice, ash, leather, citrus, bread and biscuit. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of ash, licorice, coffee, bread and biscuit. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. A bit thin. Really nice.

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
(Bottle): Pours very dark brown, almost black with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, burnt wood. Flavour is very roasted. Lots of coffee, roasted malt with some slight fruitiness coming in at the finish. Fairly bitter, aftertaste lingers for a while, medium carbonation. A bigger body and more smoothness would make this beer world class.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 6, 2013
Great nose, what a smell, full of great fruity smells, it pours black everything looks and smells great and then this rather normal Porter happens in the mouth. A touch of sour saison on the after taste. A nice beer, no that is doing it down a very good beer.

RexTalionis (2602) - FINLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Bottled. Pours dark brown in color with a fluffy tan head. Chocolate, cold coffee and light burnt wood in aroma. Dark and nice so far. Raw coffee beans in taste with a fairly amount of bitter chocolate backing it up at first. Quite mouthdrying on the whole. Solid porter with roasted coffee, salty licorice and bitter chocolate in finish.

jd543 (404) - SCOTLAND - NOV 24, 2013
Dark brown/black with a creamy, beige head. Aroma of roast malt, coffee and chocolate. Light sweet taste, with a bitter finish. Texture could have been thicker, I was expecting a fuller body - still a good porter, but given the high standards the Kernel have set themselves, I really expected a bit more from this beer. Overall a good beer.

witthatsbier (284) - glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 21, 2013
dark brown with cream head ,aroma is full of grainy malt dark cocoa with hints of black coffee,this leads into a dry roast malty chocolate coffee taste with long bitter slightly sourish finish,great body that befits a beer of this strength,overall a great assault on the tongue if you like big dry bitter mocha stouts you will love this smashing
