4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma: chocolate, coffee, bread, roasty. Appearance: Big brow cloudy head, pitch black colour. Taste: Sweet, really bitter, lot’s of coffee, chocolate, wood, intense, takes over your mouth. Palete: full body, thick feel, oily feel, long bitterness. I knew I bought a good beer, but this one surprised me and it deserve it’s name The Fundamental Blackhorn. If you want something in between a Dark Lord and a Oaked Yeti. I fell in love and will try to get more bottles for storing!

Bottle. Dark brown-black with thick moka head. Aroma is gourmet coffee and decadent chocolate cake. Taste is very rich, lots of chocolate and roasted malts along with a hoppy backbone which fell a little short to cover the huge amount of sweetness and alcohol. Rich and creamy palate. A good over-the-top imperial stout
