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 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Handsome black body beneath silly tan head. Beautiful.
Expansive roasty, milk-chocolate-infused aroma fills the air. Some dryness at the end.
Taste opens up leathery and ashy. Turns hoppy on a dime, finishing bone dry with lingering bitterness and notes of an ashtray. Weird; def not my thing.
Nice, smooth body, and all other traits are firmly in the "winner" category. Shame this is all wasted on a beer which disappoints so heavily on the palate.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Export stout apparently based on a recipe from 1890 and made by a young micro brewery in the heart of London. Deep beige head, jet black colour. Strong coffee bean aroma, bitter chocolate, leather, nutmeg, dates. Dried fruits in the taste, thick oily mouthfeel, quickly overwhelmed by a very concentrated yet elegant, refinded roasted bitterness, like a high quality coffee, deep chocolatey maltiness, long bitter finish, well-balanced. Enjoyed this very much.
