COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Event Horizon Imperial Stout is an incredibly rich and luxurious beer brewed with ten malts, local honey, and four American hop varietals before and extended aging in oak bourbon barrels. The result is a beer with many layers of complexity. As the name implies, with one sip you will be unable to turn back. This 2010 special release will age well for years to come, or enjoy now in good company. Cheers!

22oz bottle 2010 vintage thanks to Toby. Pours out pitch black topped with a small tan ring of a head. Nose is big roast malts a nice light bourbon barrel presents molasses chocolate some vanilla. Taste is more of the nice rich malts roast chocolate vanilla the bourbon barrel is not over the top I like that.

Bottle 65 cl. Pours pitch black with a light brown head. Very sweet vanilla aroma from the Bourbon. Rich, sweet malty body, very subdued roastiness, palate is almost velvety due to the low carbonation. Sweet vanilla and Bourbon throughout. Candy in a bottle. 180816

very rich flavouful is. on the sweeter side. bourbon not overpowering the roast. while i thought the honey added thickness and preserved flavour over 4 years i still am skeptical about the use if honey and syrup.subdued hop despite ageing promise.

65 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 12.12.2015
Bottle from a trade – thanks Jason! Aroma has alcohol, licorice, sweet cocoa tones and hints of tobacco. Flavour has rubbery notes, cocoa, ash, slightly salty licorice and alcohol. Also bourbon tones with vanilla and wood. Reminds me of Goose Island BCS.

Aromat kakaowy, mleczny, kawowy. Smak słodki, lekko gorzki. Kakao i kawa, trochę paloności. Świetne złożone piwo z fajną gładką fakturą.

Style et résumé: Imperial stout miel et bois.
Comment: Dégustation Manseau 2016. Bottling date 12/18/14
Portrait: Une robe brune avec une rond de mousse qui colle aux parois. Un nez d’alcool, de mélasse verte avec beaucoup de mélasse et une touche de miel. Une bouche piquante, forte avec de la mélasse. Une finale longue qui pique la langue.

Aroma of tequila which is a turn off. Maybe some oaky smells. Flavor is strong whiskey with a chocolatey finish. Hard to finish this glass
