Flaska från SB. Svart med litet beigebrunt skum. Kola, kaffe, rostade toner och en lätt rom-touch. Mellanstor. Ganska torra och rostade toner, ekfat, lite rökiga och brända inslag, aska, lätt touch av chark, torrt bastuträ, blaskig kaffesump. Inte så mycket rom, annat än en lätt sötma och en lite syrlig touch. Gaultier (1857) - SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2017

500ml bottle from Systembolaget. Pitch black. Large and dense beige head, good lacing. Roasted barley aroma, coffee up front, peat, ash and wood. Subtle oak and mild booze. Full-bodied, silky mouthfeel, soft carbonated. Rum and oak up front in taste, not as hard roasted as the aroma, woody, bitter cocoa and creamy chocolate. Long-warming and chalky, dry finish with soft alcohol and pleasant bitterness.

Bottle to pint glass
Consummation: Lots of dark chocolate up front, but then toasted malt, smoke and coffee. Finally, the taste of rum and bitterness arises.
Adjunct: Very chocolaty and earthy aroma, some vanilla and molasses too; the colour is dark brown, almost black with a light brown, thin creamy head wlf (717) - DENMARK - JAN 23, 2017

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 (59) - - 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.
