Sigmund (6495) - Tau, - JAN 14, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2013 250 ml bottle in silk paper and metal cylinder, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 12.5%. Sampled side by side with 2. edition. Deep reddish brown colour, clearer and slightly paler than the 2. edition, low off-white head. The aroma here is somewhat better, notes of red wine and red beets. The flavour is definitely better, vinous notes (fortified wine), hints of oak, nicely balanced bitterness in the finish. Warming mouthfeel, but slightly less alcoholic than 2. ed. Quite good stuff.

Bouteille de 250 ml dans un tube partagée lors d’une dégustation entre amis. Arôme: Odeur de caramel avec une très légère pointe de vanille. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée voilée. Saveur: Goût de caramel fruité avec une pointe de réglisse et d’épices. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’alcool en arrière goût. (Rating #7014)

My Bottom Line:
Heavy but lax caramel meets with bitter hop resins, as simple profile neatly boxed in cardboard.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the cloudy amber.
-This was within the 5-year best before date and still was plenty oxidized. Rather surprising for such a sugar-laden high alcohol brew.
-The finish adds a dash of brown sugar.
-Carbonation is rather soft, making the body feel even heavier.

(Nøgne Ø Red Horizon 3. edition) Bottle 250 ml at home, from a trade with Cuso, thanks! Served into a snifter at home and tasted side to side with the 2nd edition, ABV 12.5% Deep red coloured body, slightly hazy, with a small and thin taan head, okay retention. Aroma of red and dark fruits, light caramel, cheese, sugars. Taste has caramel, dark fruits, red fruits, alcohol, light vanilla, light vinous notes. Medium body, good carbonation, sticky on the palate. Pretty good.

patricks110 (2405) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 9, 2016
Very similar to 2nd edition. A bit of a burnt coffee bean note with a brighter and more well rounded fruit profile. Caramel, heavy toffee and jammy bread notes. Interesting profile. 2 or 3 years aged.

gEUS (1702) - Linden, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2016
bottle at home - teku glass, side by side 2. and 3. 2.: Pours clear dark amberish orange, no head. Aroma of aged hops and some smoke. Nice sweet body, some herbal bitters, some sake in the finish, with sweet bready malts. 3.: cloudier, darker. nose is more malt. Body and taste are likewise. Too bad they are over their point.

sharkydodson (1084) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - DEC 31, 2015
the aroma is very bright, fruity and caramel with notes of vanilla, toffee, licorice, berries and some spices... the taste is fruity, caramel and, a little bit, smoked with notes of port, toffee, dried banana, raisin and spices... sweet, dry and warming aftertaste...

Aroma of malt, fruits,licorice, dried fruits and hints of honey and spices. Amber with a tan head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body with a soft carbonation. Overall an interesting and enjoyable brew.

Ein schönes, klassisch schweres Bier, das vor dunklen Früchten, Malz und Röstaromen nur so strotzt. Wenn man sowas mag, ist man sehr gut aufgehoben und wird mehr als nur gewärmt. Süffigkeit und Perlung ausgewogen, also gibt es auch hier nichts zu meckern. Gutes Piwo.
