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.

b3shine (8107) - Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2015
8.5 oz bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks DuffMan). Looks good; a mostly opaque very dark cola with beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes good too; dark malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and roast. Some raisin and plum on the tongue as well. Mouthfeel is full-bodied, somewhat bitter, and pleasantly boozy. Intense, but good.

From a bottle. Huge aroma of port, pours thick with minimal head, warming like a winters fire, this is a serious beer.
