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.

Bottled 18/02/14. 8.2%ABV. Good solid stout. I loved well balanced flavours of roasted coffee, dark chocolate and a touch of vanilla. Hugely impressive. I’ll dig the Kernel more for sure.

Bottle sample, thanks rayaron. 8.2%. Dark brown with a beige creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, black coffee and dark chocolate. Very rich bunch of flavors with coffee, chocolate, raisins, dried fruits and vanilla notes. Long lingering aftertaste, medium-full bodied. Smooth and creamy. Great stout.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 330ml bottle, nearly black with a moderate, tan, foamy head. Aroma is complex, immediately chocolate, then a roasted coffee and raisin. Taste has sweet notes that are followed by medium bitter. My lips are sticky. Full bodied, soft carbonation. Not an overly heavy stout at all. Coffee notes linger in wonderful fashion and my mouth is left feeling warm. Very enjoyable experience to be sure.

Zo dit is even een lekker biertje, van de tap mooi bruin/zwart met goede volle kraag. Aroma volmoutig en chocolade en koffie, dit kont ook prima terug in de smaken. Lekker glad en zacht. Erg goed bier !

On tap at The Kernel, pours black with a medium brown head. Aroma brings out lots of roasted malt and cocoa. Flavour is very rich and complex, with lots of roasted malt and dry cocoa. Rich and velvety on the palate, with exceptional depth. Another gem from the masters of the UK.
