COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweet Horizon is dessert for the ones with a sweet tooth. Black and velvety, with hints of sweet chocolate, fruit, coffee, licorice......... Hmmmm! But remember, this is dessert, so do not try to have dessert with it!

mile (3314) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2010
Bottle. Dark brow – almost black. Moderate to heavy aroma, very sweet – caramel, roasted coffee and some vanilla. Medium to full body, very sugary sweet, coffee and some licorice. Finish is medium to full, sugary sweet, some alcohol. As it says on the bottle “sweet”, unfortunately nothing else.

tmrmwel (1159) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2010 Bottle. Pours a very dark brown, with a small, but thick head. Complex aroma of sweet licorice, caramelized and slightly burned malt, coffee, and some hints of blackcurrant. Full, syrupy body, with a very rich taste. An initial taste of apricot and sweet fruit, with a gliding transition to a good, sweet espresso style coffee. Some alcoholic presence, with a feeling of very rich red wine, requires a slight chill for the beer not to feel as a sweet bomb of syrup. This sweetness is balanced by a massive amount of hops, barely noticeable until giving a nice bitter finish.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2010 Bottle. This beer is balanced in all its complexity. Notes of licorice, chocolate and sweet berries forms a interesting dessert beer.

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2010
It’s pitch-black with a brown, creamy head and an oily mouth-feel. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, berries, chocolate and light coffee. The flavour is sweet with notes of roasted malt, berries, raisin, plum, chocolate and light sweet coffee. It’s a delicious liquid desert, ideally shared with others.

Love the coffeearomas on this! It really grows on you, with some topnotes of dried fruit. The carbonation is perfect, creamy and delicious. It got a loong aftetaste, and even with 14 % alcohol and 60IBU its dominante in anyway. A perfect beer to end a meal!

Beer4000 (4932) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2010
250 ml bottle. Very dark, brown body, close to black with a thin layer of a brown head. Aroma is sweet malt, molasses, espresso coffee and honey. Flavor is sweet, dark malt, coffee, roasted coffee bitterness, chocolate, sweet dry fruit and honey with warming alcohol. Full body, low carbonating, long, sweet aftertaste with roast, bitterness and honey. Of course this beer is sweet, as indicated by the name, but I don’t think it’s out of balance sweet and I was expecting some really sticky stuff here based on some previous ratings, but I find it quite balanced with bitterness and alcohol in smaller amounts.
