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.

Pitch black, with generous brown head, compact. It’s the usual good sipper; smooth; sweet without being syrupy or thick; strong, but controlling the alcohol perception, till the warming final; dynamic, with piquant hopping; the aroma is harmonious, with brown sugar, chocolate cup, vanilla, roasted malt, hint of coffee.
Excellent beer.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 8, 2013
Bottle, 25cl. Batch 857/858B. A more or less black one, topped by a dense, finger-thick light tan head. It’s lightly alcoholic on the nose, with coffee, chocolate and a faint touch of dried fruits. Mostly chocolate and coffee in the flavor, with a touch of alcohol. A bit one-tracked, but nice. Warming, full-bodied and quite sweetish on the palate. Lasting finish with roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and sweetness. Not like DH1 or DH2 yet, but really pleasant. 121126
