Horizon Tokyo* Black – Nøgne Ø (Mikkeller, Brewdog) (Aged 3 Years 7 Months)

Brewed at Nøgne Ø in Norway in collaboration with Brewdog and Mikkeller comes their “Horizon Tokyo* Black” a collaborative version of all three breweries huge beers Dark Horizon, Tokyo and Black.  The beer pours a oily black colour that is opaque with a small brown head.  The aroma consists of chocolate, smoke, dark fruits, cranberry, treacle, syrup and some alcohol.  The flavour is of chocolate, caramel, toffee, molasses, treacle, cranberry, ash, smoke, burnt malts, leather, earth and only really a hint of alcohol.  The alcohol content comes in at an insane 16% with an IBU of 100.  This beer is insanely smooth for a beer of 16% let alone 8% and has all the making of an amazing stout.

Commercial Description:  Horizon Tokyo Black:  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!
