|Export Stout - 7.1%|
To prepare myself, I've gone back to an earlier brewery which I've enjoyed but had something of a mixed bag out of. The Kernel and his Export Stout.
It's another dark colour with a nutty smell and a full roasted flavour. I would hesitate to call it a bad batch but I have had nicer in a similar style before. It was lacking in a solid body to back up that roasted malt.
I'm perhaps being a touch harsh as this is an interesting beer from an always interesting brewery. I may not enjoy everything they make but I do like their attitude to beer.
