THE KERNEL BREWERY Export India Porter - 500ml
Export India Porter relates to porter in similar manner to the way the IPA relates to the Pale Ale: they added more hops. We've taken Barclay Perkins recipe from 1855, and hopped it in the same way that we hop our IPAs. The result is a dark brown beer that smells of cocoa, roses, and some orange. The body is quite light, and it is carbonated more highly than usual for a porter to make it more refreshing. It's quite light in texture and tastes of Turkish delight dusted with cocoa powder ' chocolate, rose water and fruit. Hop varieties vary from brew to brew, lending a different character to each version.
THE KERNEL BREWERYWe brew pale ales, dark ales, lagers and mixed fermentation beers: sometimes focused on the aromas, flavours and bitterness of hops; the complex warmth and layers of roasted malts; the clarity of cold fermentations; or the acidity, tannin, and texture contributed by mixed fermentations, by time and barrels, wild yeast and bacteria. All guided by the principles of simplicity and balance.
