Ungstrup (29281) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2011
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin dark brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, roasted malt, and coffee. The flavor is very sweet with notes of sugar, alcohol, roasted malt, chocolate, and wood, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. The alcohol burns down the throat.

oh6gdx (20308) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2011
Bottled@SBWF2011. Pitch black colour, no head. Aroma is sweet imperial stout like. Flavour is rather much the same. I don’t even know what to say, you could take any of the beers in the blend, and it would give you quite much the same feeling. Good, but why bother blending these...

omhper (19365) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2011
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Very black. Aroma of plums and licorice. Sweet and hugely full bodied. Brandyishand fairly soft with loads of licorice. Not inky at all. Surprisingly good, considering my opinion of Black and the Horizons.

Opaque dark black - brown beer with a small chocolate coloured head. Nose of coffee, chocolate, a little marmite and fruit. Light semi dry palate. Sweet fruit - red fruits. Chocolate, coffee, licorice - aniseed. Finishes with a light touch of alcohol and more vibrant red fruits. Sumptuos, intense, ruinous! Best thing from Brewdog for a while.

Absolute black color; the carbonation seems low, but produces a generous brown head, reucing to a thin layer. The aroma is nice but not impressive, with cardboard, roasted malt, coffee, some tobacco and leather; mild; mainly off-putting because of the cardboard.
But the flavor is fantastic; the sweetness is immediately perceived, providing a canvas for the plots of the chocolate, roasted malt, tobacco, light liquorice; it has a correct bitterness level; the alcohol is warming the mouth, but not warning the mind, as its perception is relatively hidden.
Great.
