The first aroma you get is a chocolate/coffee heaven and is followed by an amazing taste of just pure goodness of the perfect mixture of chocolate, coffee, vanilla. Cellar this beer and you’ll be amazed. It’s got the rich feel and head looks great. Taste will blow you away. Nothing too mellow, and the smell is just so perfect as well. Definitely recommend it if you get your hands on one.

Black in color. Tan head.

The coffee on this beer is awesome. Not burnt or roasted. Great vanilla flavor that goes with the chocolate and bourbon. Thick. Tons of flavor here. Another winner from BL.

Poured into a snifter. Muddy brown color with a frothy tan head. Huge vanilla, graham cracker, and marshmallow on the nose. The taste was similar with huge vanilla and marshmallow flavor. A nice coffee and roasted malt balance. Full-bodied but neither cloying nor boozy. An outstanding beer.

Fundamental Summation is a coffee-forward version of Fundamental Observation. Depending your taste preferences, this either enhances or diminishes the quality of an already outstanding beer. Personally, I thought that Fundamental Observation was a better beer and found myself wondering what 3 Sons Brewing actually contributed to this beer beyond splitting a name.

What is there left to say about these bottle logic stouts. Another winner. I prefer this to FOMO as the flavors balance a bit more. Top notch. Not too sweet. great flavor. awesome
