500ml bottle. Pours deep black with a generous, brown, creamy head. Aroma is aniseed and chocolate with vanilla hints. Taste is complex, with fruit, liquorice, chocolate and coffee all making an appearance. Excellent

500ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow: Yet another outstanding beer from The Kernel, they never seem to let me down. I wasn’t expecting anywhere near as many hops coming through in this one but they proved to be a welcome addition and the beer definitely worked well as a result. It’s certainly one of the most hop-filled dark beers I’ve tried and I wasn’t sure how this one would rank alongside some of the lighter IPA’s or America pale ales from the brewery but it more than held its own, it’s definitely one I’d pick up again as well.

brystmar (1299) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottled 5/27/14. Nice appearance; retains a respectable amount of tan lace up top.

Super super dry and ashy with heavy bitterness at the end. Deep baker's chocolate character is overwhelmed by the charcoal-y-ness and black licorice. Style isn't really my thing so hard to place too much fault for personal distaste. A decent representation.

androman (565) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2014
ABV 5.6%. 33cl bottle @ home from De Molen. Pitch black body, big rocky brown mostly lasting good lacing head. Nose is chocolate malt, dark roasted coffee, Aroma is toast, colal, dark chocolate, hops, soy sauce. Taste whiff of sweetness, heavy roasty bitterness. Full body, oily feel, soft carbonation, long lasting coffeeish bitter finish. Simple, great dessert beer.

prawlie (1205) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2014
500 mL bottle from the Grumpy Goat in Reading. The first impressions are excellent, roasty, coffee notes, with some hoppy life to it too. A very pleasant porter. Looks and smells the part too.

0,33l fles bij abc beers vandaan de versie met 6,3% en brawling cross hop. Diep Donker zo goed als zwart met een paar kleine bruine deeltjes met een mooie fijne bruine kraag.Geur is even rijk als geballanceerd extra pure chocolade, koek, speculaas en drop.Smaak is mooi bitter.met espresso en 99%pure chocolade in de afdronk blijft het bitter mooi staan. Wat een topper.
