To be honest I’m getting a bit bored of writing about how good The Kernel are and in fact this is probably my least favourite of all of the beers I’ve had from them.
The problem is that with all that said, and I hate to say it, this is far better beer than so many other can brew.
Pouring a deep purple brown, Export Porter Cacao smells of chocolate coated raisins.
The initial flavours are soft prunes and stewed plums and chocolate all dripping from a rather nicely baked digestive biscuit.
There’s a good dry crunchy leaf mulch rich hop too.
It’s all crisp and dry and autumnal and leaves you with a delicious chocolate and red leaf dryness that’ll make you smile from ear to ear.
This really is getting boring now.
