I want to drink this by the pint, not from a tiny little bottle.
The Kernel’s Dry Stout brewed with Mosaic is astonishingly good, sitting a thick and dark deep purple in my glass the smell is lightly fruited treacle tart.
The malting is big and round and chewy with molasses and burned brown bread toast, a splash of coffee and a lick of honey.
But what lifts this beer is the addition of the Mosaic hops which take you by surprise in the most delightful way.
Instead of the hedgerow herbal greenery or the crunchy autumnal hop thing, a pin sharp, fresh fruit, melon, lime zest and sherbet coated satsuma hoppiness absolutely bursts out at you and adds a fizzy piquant sweetness to the extremely dry pithy finish.
The Kernel at their very best.
