Aroma is dark fruits, belgian sugar, yeast and sweet malts.Taste is a fruity and sweet maltiness. A light bitterness arrives and finishes smoothly. Quite deep and complex. Appearance is a slightly cloudy amber body with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well. Tsekouratos (603) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - NOV 13, 2014

Medium to full body with low carbonation. shigadeyo (3739) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2014
10/10/2014: Nogne O Dark Horizon 1.Edition... Pours black, no head on the top. Aroma is alcohol, a touch of soy sauce, dark malts, and a hint of coffee. Chocolate malt, coffee, caramel sweetness. The coffee comes out more in the finish, but still isn’t overwhelming. Medium-light body, smooth, milky texture, a touch thin. Very good and holding on, but not great. This is nothing special and and definitely NOT WORTH THE PRICE. 1 pt. .9 fl. oz. (16 alk/vol) capped bottle (#02874) in cardboard tube.

From notes. Tasted on 6/30/12 at the 1st Annual Chimipalooza, I shared this 500mL bottle. Pours inky black with a very thin, slow-forming brown head that leaves a very thin collar of lace. The nose is sweet molasses, dark chocolate, mocha, vanilla, and just a touch of smoke. The flavor is a touch sweet with the same molasses and vanilla up front, moving to all of the bitter mocha, dark chocolate, and light smoke. The body is massively full with light carbonation and a super long roasted, molasses, and dark chocolate finish. This showed a bit of oxidation, but was still holding up nicely.

Vintage moment at Finn’s Castle : Nøgne Ø Dark Horizon 1st Edition (16%).
Beige low tight head in the snifter, black-black-brown body.
A bouquet of liquorice, a bowl of chocolate stuff mixed with coffee beans, and the whole candy shop passes my nose.
Taste; caramel power-malts, liquorice, lots of dark fruits, cinnamon, ginger, chocolate - you name it (’coz I forgot...).
Very nice fruity on palate, full body, and about completely hidden alcohol (oups).
Finishes fruity, caramelly, dark dark barley malty, warming. Full taste without black holes. Luxurious slow sipper for the sunset. Thanx 2 Finn :)

Huge thanks to OldMrCrow for sharing this beauty with my wife and me one night. Pours deep and dark with no head. Chewy, dark candied fruit; roast, chocolate, well-placed oxidation; like dark, sweet, condensed grape juice (with alcohol, of course - I suppose they call that port?). Not picking up any coffee here. It’s on the sweet side, but really really nice -- doesn’t show its age at all. Impressive. This is a huge beer, but no heat except for the lingering burn in my throat that I’d love to go on and on -- this is impressive. Really impressive. Full body, slick texture that is just full enough but not quite thick or viscou. Soft carbonation. Damn this is good. Seriously goddamned good. Thanks again, Crow!
