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!

Pour is black with no head at all. No visible carbonation. Aroma is very sweet with notes of overripe fruit, coffee grounds, and brown sugar. Flavor is a sticky and sweet bomb - dark sugar syrup, cherry juice, fresh coffee. Slight alcohol in the finish, but its masked well.

Backlog. Intensely sweet with dark cherries and dried fruits and a hint of chocolate. Although not really my cup of tea it’s just one of those beers that just sticks on your palate forever.

Bottle. 14%. Best before 30.06.15. Pours black with a small, fast-disappearing light tan head. Slightly tart, sweetish dark fruit aroma, with a light berry note, a faint acetone note, remote cold coffee note, and a faint touch of chocolate. Flavour is sweet, almost sugary, with dark fruits. Same finish, with an alcohol burn and lingering vermouth-like and faint coffee notes. Caramel as it warms. Overall pretty good; the sweetness is pretty strong, but works nonetheless. 31.01.14.

Bottle at home. Pours opaque black with no head. Aroma is roast malt, cooked dark fruits of plums, raisins, figs, and dates, light alcohol, and vinous notes. Flavor is sweet dark malt and fruits, lightly spicy alcohol, and a sweet finish. Full body and light carbonation.

Bottle shared with Annie baby in November of ’10. Thit, this that vintage review yo. Bottle pours murky brown with small head and not much lacing remaining. Aromas and taste were chocolate cake, raspberry, anise, wood, sweet malt, candy sugar, and plum. Pretty thick and relatively sweet but nice. Tasty meh, try dis

250ml bottle. Black colour with a small brown head. Notes of sweet and roasted malts, fruits (plums and raisins), chocolate, coffee and alcohol. Heavy sweetness and moderate bitterness in the flavour and a dry, bitter finish. Full-bodied with a oily texture and very soft carbonation. A bit too sweet for me, but nevertheless very good!

Bottle thanks to the Norwegian contingent. Black pour with very little carbonation, not a shocker. Sweet, very sweet. Licorice, vanilla, cream, and caramel. Brown sugar, roasted malt, and a touch of ash. A touch of coffee. Flavors of fudge, vanilla, brown sugar, cream, and caramel. Some roasted malt, licorice, coffee, and a hint of smoke. Not surprisingly, some booze, too.

Now, Finally it’s my turn to have a go at this. Pour murky very dark brown, with no head at all. Aroma is sugary sweet, molasses, vanilla, light burnt sugar slight dark fruits. This thing really does hide the booze well. (It almost feels like a port wine?) The taste is crazily sweet... As it should be given the name. Slight thick n’ oily, with a quite flat carb. Since I do have a sweet tooth, this was something I enjoyed...

Bottle: picked this up a while back, pours dark black with zero head, aroma is boozy and sweet, taste is sweet and syrupy, chocoalte flavor and some licorice flavor which works with the boozy finish, definitely dessert, just too sweet for me to really enjoy
