Another night, another Hornbeer. Sure, I could sit on this for years but I’m absolutely done with that mentality. Let’s go! Cocoa, dry wood, rum, ever so slight spice, coffee, vanilla. Everything is subdued but it doesn’t take effort to notice it all. The taste is pretty good. On occasion the intro is stellar, other times it comes across as an unknown. Sweet spice appears on the finish along with the puckering bitterness followed by drool. Oak, cocoa, smoke, and more smoke after a sit. I was having issues with the flavour as it was just all blended up into some unknown pile. Then I realized that this brew NEEDS to be sipped, slowly, to allow my mouth to recover from each sip. Only then was I allowed to get personal with this brew. Wood and more smoke, burnt sugar not wood. Bets better with patience. Don’t drink the sediment - it’s really shitty. I’ll take Hornbeer The Fundamental 1000 times out of 1000 before this one given the choice. Side note - I cannot wait for that DRI show in a couple of months. Jon3s (58) - - DEC 28, 2016
Black as my soul and adequate head that vanishes rather fast. Roasted malts, figs, coffee, dark rum, oak some other earth notes and spices.
Medium sweet. Quite bitter, warm and long finish. All nicely balanced. jzi (314) - POLAND - DEC 24, 2016

500ml bottle pours deep black in color with a finger and a half of light brown head that settles quickly leaving no lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate and roasted grains with dark fruits, rum and hints of vanilla. Taste is a dark fruit and chocolate malty sweetness with a roasted grain and citrusy hop bitterness finishing with the rum and oaky notes. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a well crafted stout that suits the style well and hides the alcohol well, making it relatively easy to drink. Bosbouw (2925) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2016

Ruikt naar hout en gerookte kip. Beetje asbak. Lekker, beetje alcoholisch....... Abijen (2571) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2016

Bottle 0,5. Pours pitch black with large beige foamy head. Good retention. Aroma of dark chocolate, dark fruits, raisins, wood, hint of vanilla. Taste is coffee, dark fruits, orange peel, vanilla, cocoa, spices, chalk, some smole and tobacco in the aftertaste, where the rum emerges. Sweet with dry and nice biterness in the finish. Creamy and oily texture, full body and soft carbonation. Jashiu (1324) - Gdañsk, POLAND - DEC 5, 2016

Backlog. GREAT aroma and taste, rum scents and taste mix with cocoa, chocolate and coffee. Very rich and thick - and sweet! Great desert stout! Great job at hiding the alcohol.

Czarne piwo o ciemnobeżowej, kremowej pianie oraz słodkawym, rumowym aromacie. W smaku gęste, lekko słodkawe, zdecydowanie kawowe z wyrazistymi nutami rumowymi i rozgrzewającym, wytrawnym finiszem.
