BlazerT (753) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 2, 2017
Bottle. Pitch black with small to medium, thick, light brown head. Heavy malty aroma, caramel, roasted, coffee, lots of milk chocolate, dried dark fruits up front - pruns, raisins, slightly toffee and licorice. Taste is heavy sweet and moderately bitter, stable, long duration. Full body, thick and oily texture, soft carbonation, finish is semi-bitter, semi-dry, slightly roasted, dark fruits. ABV is extremely well hidden, the brew is highly drinkable, it tastes like plums coated with milk chocolate. Summary: Very good brew. It shows how based on milk chocolate and dried fruits RIS should look like. Podsumowanie: Mleczna czekolada, toffi, krwki, sporo suszonych śliwek i rodzynek. Piwo nie powala swoją złożonościa czy wybitnie wysublimowanym charakterem, ale jest znakomitym old-schoolowym RISem. Mogło by być trochę więcej ciała.

BeardedAvenger (444) - 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.

bonev (521) - 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".
