It’s 330ml, bottle-conditioned and weighs in at 5.6%. I think this is a weaker version of an earlier batch, as I seem to recall that being over the 7% mark. It poured predictably dark with a large tan head. The aroma was a distinct mix of roast malts and coffee.
The mouthfeel was smooth and initial impressions were that it was very Porter like. There’s roast malt, some chocolate, and a dark fruit character about it. I would imagine that this is similar to, but easier on the palate than, the original version as its creamy nature would be hard to duplicate in a stronger beer.A pleasant enough, if not the most exciting, Kernel beer.
