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.

Svart färg. Kakao doft. Sötma i smaken. Kakao & mörk choklad. Lätt kropp & lätt eftersmak men kakao smaken är jävligt bra. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

25cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Batch 857/858. Brewed 2012-08-22. Best before 2022-08-22. It poured a pitch black colour with a minimal brown head. Aroma is massive. Lots of coffee, liqorice, anis, brown sugar and alcohol. Some hints of dark red fruits.Flavour is suprisingly smooth, but with some rough notes. Alcohol is the first one notices, but then dark chocolate, strong coffee, anis and liqorice appears. After a short while some sweet notes of brown sugar, vanilla. Medium long aftertaste.
