Danish: Vi har brygget p denne l i lang tid. Nu synes vi selv, at den er som vi nsker. En meget kraftig stout med brndte toner fra ristet bygmalt, rgmalt, kaffe, en smule krydderier og som prikken over iet: en sjat rom og herefter lagret p egetr. Denne l m gerne gemmes flere r i et mrkt skab eller en klder. Men den kan alts ogs drikkes nu. Kb en ekstra flaske og gem den til en srlig lejlighed om nogle r. Den vil udvikle sig som god vin bare blive bedre og bedre i mange r.
Drik den i vinglas til sde desserter, chokolade eller uden noget.

English: We have brewed on this beer on a long time and we finally think it is a should. A very majestic stout with a hint of roasted barley malt, smoke malt, coffee, some spices and to top it all a drop of rum. The beer has been seasoned on oak wood. This beer can stored many years in a dark closet or cellar, but is also ready to drink when it leaves our brewery. Buy an extra bottle and stash it for a special occasion in some years. It will develop like a god wine- only get better and better by the years.

A lot of flavours. Chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, rum and roast. The carbonation seems now to be fixed from earlier bottles. Great balance.

Another night, another Hornbeer. Sure, I could sit on this for years but Im absolutely done with that mentality. Lets go! Cocoa, dry wood, rum, ever so slight spice, coffee, vanilla. Everything is subdued but it doesnt 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. Dont drink the sediment - its really shitty. Ill 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.

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.

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.

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.
