witthatsbier (239) - 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

minutemat (1631) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
330ml bottle from Borough Wines. Pours pitch porter black with typical creamy beige head. Lovely roasted malts with liquorice notes, fairly bitter espresso qualities and a touch of bitter chocolate. My first porter from Kernel and although I couldn’t get any citrus influence from the hops, it doesn’t disappoint.

fiammanghilla (554) - Genova, ITALY - NOV 10, 2013
Bottiglia 33 cl, comprata da grand cru sant'arcangelo e bevuta a casa. Nera con splendida schiuma marroncina pannosa e persistente. Adoro kernel ma questa birra mi ha lasciato un po' interdetto... Corpo adeguatamente leggero, buona bevibilità, a mio parere è troppo lupoolata, copre le tostature e la rende molto amara. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle 0.33l at moeder lambic Saint-Gilles. Pours black with beige head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt, sour touch. Taste has roasted malt and coffee, light sweetness, heavy bitterness. Strong aftertaste of coffee. Good balanced Porter. I like the coffee touch and the bitterness.

rhyshewer (71) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2013
Aroma: Chocolatey and roasted grain with a slight herbally hop presence. Appearance: Black with deep red edges and a large tan head. Taste: Sour and tart with a very broad but mild roastiness. Palate: Medium bodied with a slight slickness. Medium carbonation and a slight bitter-warm finish. Overall: Not bad but if it tasted like it smells it would be a winner.

a_cross (600) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Columbus / Topaz / Bramling Cross 5.8%; black, thick tan head; aroma of roast malt but with pineapple coming through - nice contrast; taste also begins by being dominated by roast malt, then fruity, resinous, bitter hops enter the fray; a well balanced porter despite the intense roast malt; sessionable it ain’t, was finding it hard going by the end - a smaller bottle would have been much preferable.

javiercrasher (165) - Granada, SPAIN - OCT 27, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 Negra, con una abundante capa de espuma beige de buena retención. Aroma a maltas torrefactas, casi quemadas, y algo de humo, también cacao y café. Cuerpo medio y bien carbonatada. En boca entra áspera, con presencia del cacao y maltas quemadas, también algo de lúpulo y hierba. Nada de ese dulce que uno espera encontrar en una porter. Final amargo de tipo cafetoso y seco.

DSG (5812) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 25, 2013
[10/5/13] Draught at the brewery in London. Black with a tan head. Roasty aroma with some chocolate and some piney and citric hops. Hoppy flavor, piney and citric, with some roastiness and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Nice.
