Fundamental Forces is an Imperial Vanilla Stout from Bottle Logic. The one I drank had an ABV 17.17%, so a little stronger. I guess the Fundamental Force I got was the Strong Nuclear Force, the one with Gluons and Mesons. It's recommended with brownies. I didn't have brownies but my wife suggested oreo cookies but I thought that I didn't need to double it up. This beer is like 8 oreo cookies and that's enough. Maybe a little sweet, but it's good, very good, slightly boozy (well ABV 17.17%) but with all the other flavors that is not an issue.

Look: black with a half inch fluffy mocca colored head

Aroma: chocolate, vanilla, bourbon

Flavor: What stands out is the vanilla, the bourbon, the roasted malts, the coffee and chocolate.

Body/Overall: Full bodied, dessert in a bottle.

This is a very very good stout beer. It is very boozy. It is very thick and rich so take it slow but you can sip and and enjoy as it is very strong but it is worth it.

Pours a deep black color with a nonexistent head leaving a thick lacing down the glass. It smells of huge coffee, sweet vanilla and bourbon aromas. Tastes of sweet vanilla a bourbon, hints of coffee at the end. Very sweet but excellent flavors. Thick, heavy, warms on the way down. Overall it's an excellent beer, very high abv so beware!

Midnight black pour with a thin brown ring and webbing. Huge aromas of vanilla lead the nose, with fudgey chocolate, full bourbon with potent molasses mash, chocolate truffle, hints of marshmallow and light plum liqueur. Amazing in the potency and complexity while keeping vanilla a star. Taste is a relative disappointment, like FO without the impeccable that has the flavors meld together. Bourbon and vanilla are in one camp, and chocolate truffle in another during the sip. Still delicious, but want more integration. Much warmer than FO too, feel is not as smooth or lush, but instead chewy. Still a wonderful stout well worth your time, but much prefer fundamental observation. The wife liked it

2019 version poured from the bottle into a snifter. This has a wonderful vanilla flavor and the high ABV percentage is incredibly hidden. Excellent!
