Armando és Balázs a ludas benne! Amikor kiöntjük a pohárba, akkor még nem lehet eldönteni, hogy sörrel vagy fáradt olajjal van dolgunk, olyan sűrű és sötét. Habja az nincs vagy az üveg alján maradt. Illata áfonya likőrös, csokoládés, medvecukros, ázott avaros és égetett fás. Ízében is erősen jelentkeznek ezek a jegyek, kapszaicinnel, minőségi kávéval, gyógynövényekkel, fekete csokival és sok alkohollal megtoldva. Sűrű, igen testes és picit buborékos. Utóíze erős, kesernyés és száraz. Brutális, könnyen elnyel, mint egy fekete lyuk.

Glouglouburp (6023) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 8, 2012
In short: A brutal over-boozy over-roasted black beer that burns your throat. Bad
How: Bottle 500ml. Consumed when approximately 3 years of age, because no way I’m drinking a 16% beer without some maturation time
The look: Black body topped by a persistent very small tan head
In long: Nose is alcohol heat, burnt cereals that bring light smoky notes, some phenols, something that resembles anise. An overall ‘hotness’ in the aroma. Taste is brutal, alcohol burning the tongue, extremely harsh roastiness that feels like drinking ashes, throwing a burning charcoal down your throat, chewing on hospital gloves, rubbing alcohol on your lips, chewing on a star anise, concentrated coffee, metallic undertones… Even the carbonation is aggressive. Jesus f**ken Christ, this is brutal, my mouth is on fire. Awful beer. I don’t know why I bought this beer, and I find tell myself “what the fuck was I thinking?” way too many times every day for someone who is still alive.

Bottle shared by me at the daje & esp0r hits #1000 rates sessions. Strangely i had to go to Denmark to find this one
Black with a small tanned head. SMells of coffee, soy sauce, chocolate and roasted malts. Heavy sweet, quite vinous. Alot of coffee and roasted malt flavors, thick sticky texture, some alcohol as well. Heavy bitter, coffee, earth and liquorice. A quite nice beer, can’t believe it’s so strong. The search for DH1 will continue...

VsXsV (2271) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2012. Opaque black liquid with small tan head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, booze, chocolate, ash and licorice. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of biscuit, fresh coffee and chocolate. Full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Better than DH3.

JohnnyJ (4357) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Bottle, I think it was actually 17.5% abv. Oily black pour, practically zero head. Low carbonation, which isn’t suprising due to the strength and age of this beer. Mollasses, burnt dark sugars, prune, raisin, and heavy booze. The alcohol is very strong. Pretty good if you can get past the burn, a sipper for sure.

Cunningham (4492) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2012
Black colour with a beige head. Complex beer in any way. Deep roasted aroma with some fruity notes. Heavy flavour with coffe, chocolate, roasted malt, licorice yes the whole lot(a rosie). A nice dessert in the evening.
[Bottle at Bishops Arms Järntorget in Göteborg, Sweden]

(ABV 17.5% according to the bottle...nice one RB :D ) Bottle graciously split with mcberko (you’re welcome!). Pours a clean solid black with a head which disappears very quickly. Aroma of high % dark chocolate, liqueur, darkly roasted coffee, liquorice, caramel, molasses. Easily the booziest of the three Dark Horizons! Booze coats the tongue almost immediately. Complex flavours - as mentioned before, including some dark fruits and wood chips - or similar flavour. Definitely a slow sipper. A complex and intricate beer, which I feel would most certainly deserve a higher rating if the flavour wasn’t so dominated by booze. The other two are indeed more enjoyable.

mcberko (6426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2012
500mL bottle, pours pitch black like engine oil with a very quickly-dissipating brown head. Aroma is very rich with notes molasses, caramel, liqueur coated dark fruits, some light roasted malt and even some light notes of coffee. The beginning of the first sip burns the mouth with intense alcohol, then follows with notes of liqueur, burnt roasted malt, licorice, caramel, tar and tobacco. Complex, but my throat is on fire from the intense booziness. Extremely hot, making no attempt to hide the alcohol even after 4 years of cellaring. Despite this, very soft palate with little carbonation. Probably the weakest of the three Dark Horizons (so far) due to the heat, though enjoyable... very, very, very slow sipper.
