BeardedAvenger (661) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2016
Bottle at home. Bought at Odd Bins, London Bridge. Sweet and sour coffee aroma. Chocolate too. Dark with chestnut highlights. The dark beige head soon dissipated. Sweet, a hint of bitterness that is more obvious in the finish. Full bodied. Creamy, even slick. No carbonation. Long finish, slightly astringent at its tail end. Good stuff. Warming but also pleasant with it.

Zabutelkowane 7 października 2013 roku. Wybitne. Zdecydowanie najlepsze piwo Kernela, jakie dotąd miałem okazję pić. Trzy lata leżaka dosyć mocno wpłynęło na jego walory smakowe. Aromat to symfonia doskonałej gorzkiej czekolady, kakao, świeżo mielonej kawy w żarnowym młynku. W tle lekka owocowość, akcenty drewna i ziemistość. Smak od pierwszego łyku zniewala. Wysoka paloność, oleista konsystencja, niskie wysycenie to cechy charakterystyczne. Przypomina Cour di Cioccolata, znakomity włoski likier, alkohol jest ułożony fenomenalnie. Dominującym motywem jest czekolada. Nieco pźniej goryczkę podbija kakao. Wraz z uzyskaniem temperatury pokojowej w szkle, pojawiają się akcenty kojarzące się z pumperniklem, brownie, orzechw laskowych i korzennych przypraw. Piwo kupione za "magiczne" pieniądze w Kuflach i Kapslach, pochodzące z własnego importu z Wysp.

16/20 far from the best imperial stout about this is tasty. Slightly smoked, chocolate hit, only 9% and reasonably priced ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bonev (696) - POLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Piwo brunatno czarne z niezbyt obfita bezowa drobnopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie czekolada, kawa, rodzynki i palone slody. W smaku dosc slodkie ze srednio intensywna goryczka i dosc niskim wysyceniem. Taki likier czekoladowy kawowy, bardzo gladki i oleisty z posmakiem toffee. Piwo ma potencjal zeby byc naprawde swietne ale brakuje czegos z efektem "wow".

hohops (963) - Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Bottled 30.10.14, 10%. Appearance- utterly black, with a thick one-finger brown/tan head. Aroma- coffee, espresso, roast malt, leather, dark chocolate, chocolate milkshake, burnt malt, trace of smoke, fudge cake. Undertones of blackcurrant and dark fruits. Vanilla traces. Taste- bitter, roasty coffee, smoky roast malt, burnt toast, dark chocolate, fudge, coffee cake, treacle, rich espresso, more bitterness. Caramel, slightly sweet undertones, sticky clingy finish, a very long aftertaste. Really good.

ElDesmadre (3626) - Mikołw, POLAND - OCT 26, 2016
Bottle. Intense chocolate liqueur. Actually more chocolate liqueur notes in here than in a proper chocolate liqueur. Soy sauce, barbecue roast, burned wood, forest fruit, minor plum notes, espresso. Thick and creamy. More fruity in the flavour than in the aroma. Hidden alcohol. Roasted bitter, mineral-earthy finish. Excellent stuff.

vincentvega72 (650) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2016 Donkerbruin (bijna zwart) bier met dik mokkakleurig schuim (lijkt wel chocolademousse) die langzaamaan inzakt tot een fijn laagje. Aroma en smaken van chocolade, koffie, lichte caramel en een hint vanille. Subtiel licht bittere afdronk. Vol en romig in de mond met een klein zoetje. Perfect gebalanceerd bier. Topper !!
