Shared by martooobolut, thanks! Black beer, small tan head. Nose is roast, malt, caramel, coffee, some boozy notes. Flavor is chocolate, malt, roast, hops, licorice, caramel. Roasty-hoppy finish. Smooth and syrupy, medium to full mouthfeel.

Bottle @ home. Dark brown/black colour, thin layer of brown foam. Syrupy. Aroma of roasted malts with chocolate and coffee. Well balanced stout, sweet with smoky roasted bitter aftertaste. Again a very good beer from The Kernel!

Tap @ Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen 15/7-14. Roasted malt with notes of licorice and vanilla, sweet with some (not too pleasant) rubberlike notes, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is dry and roasted.

HoppyBudgie (692) - SOLA, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2014
On tap at Mikkeller&Friends. Pours black with a chocolate head. The aroma is malt, chocolate, and alcohol. The flavor follows the nose. First Kernel beer for me and its pretty solid

Thick black beer. Notes of licorice, coffee, mocca and some milky chocolate. Nice lasting aftertaste, gets more mocca-ish. Great beer.
