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!

Deep black coffee colour with an almost non existing head. Sweet aroma of dry fruits, raisins, cough drop, and some alcohol notes. Sweet round taste, raisins and dry figs, some coffee notes and alcohol lacing. Medium body, oily feel, very soft carbonation, sweet long finish. An experience.

Bottle. Pour is black and vinous with minimal head or carbonation. Aroma is loaded with roasted malt, coffee, alcohol, light smoke, light vanilla, light fruit, and faint licorice. Flavor is very sweet up front with a huge coffee note to follow. Also loaded of roasted malt and very velvety caramel finish with lingering sweet berry notes. This is quite wonderful. The alcohol is very well hidden. I am a big fan.

olsvammel (7120) - rebro, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2010
Bottle at BWF 2010. It poured a very dark brown liquid with no head. Sweet smell of sugar, chocolate and coffee. Extremely sweet taste with chocolate and coffee. An interesting beer that should work well with dessert.

Bottle. I am kind of nervous about this before opening it. While I like sweet and boozy beers, I thought the regular 3rd Edition was pretty sweet on its own. Pours with a thick, essential black body with a slightly thinner brown head than the other two versions. Aromas of cocoa, dusty, earthy, rich chocolate, dry and spicy coffee, dark fruits, leather, vanilla. A bit of blood and metal. Cake. A bit bitter. Flavors of strong lactose (milk sugar), chocolate, leather and roasty, earthy coffee. Its pretty sweet, but not cloying. A hint of pencil shavings in the long duration. Hmm. Chocolate syrup and white pepper. Interesting. Pretty decadent. Really syrupy and thick mouthfeel. Creamy carbonation. While I could drink an entire bottle of both the Third Edition and the Red Horizon, this bottle feels like a challenge (even at 8.5 oz). Maybe its the onslaught of calories.

250 ml bottle. Deep brown color, no head. Sweet aroma with plums, cherries and leather. Sweet flavor with vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Full body, light carbonation. Excellent dessert stout.

Bottle shared by DuffmanSW. Aroma was very boozy with tons of raisins and sweet chocolate. Taste was very sweeet with some dark fruits almost like a port wine. Lower carb. Overall very good but a lil too sweet. Small pour is enough for me.

Finn (7038) - Troms, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2010
Flaske 0,25 l fra bestillingsutvalget til Vinmonopolet. Svart med en anelse rdt. 0 skum. Kraftig aroma av lakris & litt sjokolade. Innholdsrik avrundet smak: Lakris, sjokolade & mrk frukt. Alkoholen varmer men merkes lite ellers. Blir vel st - men bevares: Et utmerket dessert- / longdrinkl. KI=0

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - NOV 26, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2010 8.5oz bottle. Rating# 54. Poured like motor oil with no head. Big sweet boozy aroma almost like black licorice. Complete sweet overload, like liquid sugar, not my bag. (1435)

SirLimpsalot (4106) - SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2010
Hr har norrmnnen hittat en balans i sin sta imperial stout som funkar fantastisk bra. Tjock, oljig vtska, hrliga toner av brnd kaffe, lakrits och den dr sta rda frukten som gr den till en alldeles perfekt efterrtts l. Ett mycket gott bevis p att man kan f en l till att smaka bra, ven med mycket stma.

Bottle. Pours pure black lickerish. Short head. A sweet desert, with a long and tasty session of goodness.
