On a cold, windy and rainy day in November 2010 we visited BrewDog together with world famous beer merchant Mikkeller. Our plan was to make a beer, which would be close to an interpolation between our individual brews Tokyo, Black and Dark Horizon. This beer should in turn be brewed by us and also for Mikkeller. It was called Black Tokyo Horizon. Unfortunately we have been very busy, but it is now time to make the second celebration of this great collaboration: Please welcome Horizon Tokyo Black!

Ingredients: Water, Maris Otter, Chocolate malt, Roast barley, Peated malt, Amber malt, Black malt, brown malt, Aurora hops, demerara sugar, Flaked oats, yeast.

Bodney Towers Bottleshare. Opaque dark black -brown beer, good dark tan head. Airy palate, mildly dry, modest fine carbonation. The malts are not as rich as you might anticipate but there is spicy licorice. Tangy dark fruits. Little floral orange and mild marmalade and even a trace of strawberry. Smooth finish. Unusual and tasty.

Travlr (27306) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Draft at Churchkey. Black color (I would hope so!), brown head. Aroma of concentrated cocoa, burnt licorice (my notes say "bent licorice" but I don’t think that smells any different). Taste is burnt espresso, bittersweet dark chocolate. Nice.

Bottled (from Vinmonopolet Kirkenes). Pitch black colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is alcohol, liquorice, some toffee and mild sugary notes. Flavour is liquorice, alcohol, some toffee and mild sugary and syrupy notes. Yet quite mellow as for the flavour.
