Bottle. Pours black with a nice brown head leaving good lacing. Fantastic aroma with roasted malts, coffee and some chocolate. Taste is like you would expect from the aroma with roasted malts, chocolate and some sweetness. Very smooth texture and quite a dry finish with some bitterness and a nice lingering taste of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Another great brew from the Kernel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at St. Andrews Brewing Co.
Kernel - Export Stout - 7.1%
Rich, slightly boozy flavor that is mildly bitter. Full bodied. Higher ABV is more evident in the aroma than in the taste and almost completely hidden in the mouthfeel. Very smooth. Low, but acceptable, carbonation and a weak head. A hint of vegetative aspects in the aroma. Some suggestions of barrel aging in the flavor.

Pours crude black with a large and dense mocha-brown head. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate, raisins and slight dried fruit. Taste is coffee at first followed by a touch of sweetness in the form of raisins and chocolate, leather and slight smokiness are next to descend upon the ’buds. Full bodied with a rich mouthfeel. Kernel have nailed everything.
