The Export India Porter relates to porter in similar manner to the way the IPA relates to the Pale Ale: they added more hops.
The brewers say: we've taken Barclay Perkins recipe from 1855, but changed the hops to Columbus and Cascade (American varieties) 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. Dry finish.
Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, a big resinous hop bite – The Kernel’s revered Export India Porter is one of the world’s top 50 stouts according to RateBeer. A slick mouthfeel paves the way for waves of delicious and complex flavour. Half classic porter, half classic IPA, one celebrated beer.
