3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle via SL 07.. Black in color... decent little head.. Smells boozy... sweet. Taste is sweet for being 5 years old.. Not boozy but warming from the alcohol. Not sugary sweet but overall sweetness which surprises me for being so old... Medium body little oily.. Overall: Nice brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to nimbleprop for this aged whale. Pours inky black, very small brown head, dissipates very quickly with minimal lacing. Aroma is loads of molasses, brandy, some anise/licorice, chocolate and hints of coffee, raw alcohol. Flavor is fully sweet, light bitter. Medium light body, oily mouthfeel, abv is totally masked other than the nose. Shockingly well preserved for as old as it is. Slayed.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pitch black and was quite oily with a thin light brown head. The aroma is wonderful and rich, dark chocolate and roasted coffee also some wood and dark sugar. Flavour started out with a mild caramel sweetness, mild coffee and chocolate and was very smooth with a nice bitter chocolate after-taste. Some port wine, dark fruits like raisins and plums with the smoothness of the mouth-feel being the key to the success of this beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
