COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There is so much fun involved in creating Dark Horizon. Once it ferments, everyone in the brewery are very enthusiastic and pay close attention. Is the yeast still active? Is everything OK? How does the flavours evolve? Dark Horizon is normally dark and velvety. Muscovado sugars provides good fruity aromas. The coffee is a chapter on its own. The green beans will first be treated alfa amylase, an enzyme brewers enjoy working with. Then we mash the green beans before drying and roasting them. This gives it the unique flavor Dark Horizon deserves. Share Dark Horizon with someone you think deserves it.

DUft: sød. kaffe. chokolade rosin. ristet malt. smag: meget smag af ristet malt kaffe. mørk chokolade. varm efter smag fra alkoholen, som fremhæver de mørke malte. en til start meget blød smag. men som bliver kras og varm

matis (155) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 31, 2014
On tap at Chmielarnia in Warsaw. Beige strong head. Chocolate, cacao, milk coffee also some alcohol in nose. Very sweet, creamy, oily, medium bitterness recognizable only in higher temp. Too sweet one and a little bit exaggerated for me.

Maris (1009) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2014
From a 250ml bottle on 24/5/2014 (batch number 857/858). Pours close to black with a tiny deep tan head. The aroma is fruity and boozy with subtle chocolate notes. Flavour wise this is a powerhouse - sweet dark fruit (prunes, dates cherries), milk and dark chocolate, roasty espresso, nuts, vanilla, a touch of soy and some warming alcohol. Damn this is complex in the mouth - very sweet and dessert like, but with lots of good counterbalancing dry, roasty hop bitterness. Chocolate is the dominating feature but there’s a whole lot more going on as well. Has a thick, rich, velvety palate and modest carbonation. You know you’re not drinking a light beer but it drinks surprising easily for 16%. This is a fantastic sweet impy.

edwardbass (539) - Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Black with no head. Aroma is dark, dried fruit, dark malt and booze. Taste is coffee, dark dried fruit, a little chocolate and again, booze. The taste is quite intense and explodes on your tongue, but the ABV is a bit too obvious for my tastes. Still, an excellent stout.

bergstaden (1327) - Røros, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2014
Black with a brown head - Sweet malty aroma with some coffee notes - Dark sweet malt body with dark fruits, coffee and some alcohol heat - Sweet malt finish that lasts along with some heat from the alcohol - This was very good and tasty

Sammy (8839) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
Expensive but worth it. Not a regular coffee drinker, but appreciate it. Dark with light head. Smooth above-average mouthfeel. Coffee and herbal aroma. Dark thick chocolate. Hop bitterness in finish.Something rich and special.
