Bottle. Not very keen on this at all, quite high in carbonation, with a sharp boiled vegetable edge to it, as well as the very sweet and sugary dark malt notes. Perhaps this needs to age a bit, but right now, this is not very fun to drink. Too sweet.

JPDIPSO (5667) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2016
First sip actually does give me the tremors. Going into glycemic shock. Coffee, hops and sugary syrup is all I can and really want to say. Two sips in and this; is going to be a long night. 12/10

Bottle from Carl (spacecoyote) as an extra -- cheers! I’m not sure the year on this, but it’s definitely past its prime. No real carbonation left, and I got a ton of soy sauce/umami/meat flavors and a moderate amount of oxidization. It maybe would have been interesting to try this beer younger, but this is past it.

Bottle shared at Daniels place. 20/02/2016. Many thanks to Daniel for this one. Oily dark brown coloured pour with no head. Aroma is cinnamon and brown sugars, little jammy fruits, sesame, hot alcohol. Flavour is composed of plum, jammy fruits, cinnamon, brown sticky sugars, chewy, little salty umami. Palate is thick and chewy, very sweet and sticky. Plummy.

The_Osprey (6556) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle presented in paper and a decorative tin, shared at home in Richmond, as ’Nøgne Ø Dark Horizon Third Edition’, 15.5%. Black with no real head. Aroma instantly shows how sweet this beer will be - chocolate liqueur and coffee syrup. Body is smooth and oily with low carbonation. Taste is sweet chocolate syrup, coffee, soy sauce. I’m not normally into sweet beers but I really enjoyed sipping on this. Great.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2016
It is dark brown, almost black and not completely opaque. The head is small and not long lasting. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, licorice, burnt sugar and dark, dried fruit. The mout feel is olily. The flavor is sweet with notes of sweet licorice, roasted malt, dark fruits, a little burnt sugar and hints of port. The finish is long, initially sweet and later more bitter.

Scopey (12705) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle at Richmondo, big thanks to Dan. It pours darkest brown with a tiny off-white head. The nose is rich, oily, sweet, chocolate, fruit cake, vanilla, umami, sweet coffee, candied plums, toasted sesame and some soy sauce. The taste is rich, sweet, oily, sweet jam, dark fruits, prune, warming alcohol, earth, caramel, toffee, fruit cake and warming alcohol through the finish. Full body and chewy, oily mouth - feel. Well made, just far too sweet for me.

Leighton (18695) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle shared in Richmond - big thanks to Daniel! Pours deep brown, mostly clear, with a slight town foam head. Scorched malts in the nose, some booze, dark cocoa, ash. Big sweet flavor with syrupy chocolate, some toasted toffee, mellow earthy bitterness, dark fruits, berries, raisins. Full bodied, syrupy and chewy, with fine carbonation. Warming finish, with sugary chocolate, light bitter burnt earth, some stinging alcohol, brownies, more raisins, figs. This stuff is big and sweet. Enjoyable in small pours.

Holmen1 (4878) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2016
Denne har jeg ventet lenge på å hente opp fra kjelleren, men heldigvis er den eneste måten p kvitte seg med en fristelse er å gi etter. 63 års bursdag er en fin anledning! Nesten helt svart, med lite skum. Intens aroma av knekk/mørk kandis, tørkede fruker, lakris, dessertsjokolade og andre lekkerier. Stor og balansert munnfylde, lite karbonert. Lang, søt og lekker ettersmak. Varmer skrotten på en kald januarkveld.
