Bottle from the legend of Kris Wines. Good to see some of the Kernel backlog being remade! The pour’s deep brown with a massive tan head. The nose is licorice, charred wood, some sweet pineapple and bitter chocolate. Hints of grass. The taste is mild fruit salad, a bit of salt, driftwood. Light and dry grassy finish. Nice rustic, earthy charred grain notes. Light body, smooth. Overall, another solid effort from the lords of Bermondsey.

ManVsBeer (6260) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2015
Keg @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Hazy dark brown with a small head. Has a few darker malts, but its tropical fruitiness remains dominant. Fairly strong tasting but not overbearing.

Aroma: roasted sunflowers seeds, herbs, pine, chocolate, weak citrus notes. Appearance: dep brown color and thin creamy head. Taste: high bitterness, roasted notes, herbs, chocolate, ashy, quite dry. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Rather disappointing, I expected something more but still it does not mean that this is bad.

heman (273) - Tychy, POLAND - SEP 9, 2015
Piwo ma ciemno brunatną barwę (prawie czarną) i jest klarowne. Nalewa się z bardzo intensywną pianą, która ładnie zdobi szkło, a po czasie redukuje się do obrączki. Aromat to wciąż całkowita dominacja chmielu. Zapach kojarzy się z niedojrzałymi cytrusami i nutami żywicznymi. Po ogrzaniu pojawiają się charakterystyczne aromaty trawiaste. W smaku piwo jest zaskakująco lekkie. Początkowo delikatnie zaznaczona jest słodowa strona piwa, na chwilę pojawiają się posmaki spalonej skórki od chleba i gdzieś tam w oddali czekoladowe niuanse. Szybko do głosu ponownie dochodzi jednak chmiel. Pojawiają się cytrusy (grejpfrut) i średnio-wysoka goryczka, pozostawiająca w ustach posmak suszonych liści tytoniu. Całość bardzo przyjemna w odbiorze.

Angenehmes, sehr klassisches Black IPA mit feiner Hopfung, etwas Kaffee, ein wenig Malz und leichter Fruchtigkeit. Im Abgang moderate Bitterkeit. Einfach zu trinken, süffig, wunderbar.
