3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma was big artificial raspberey, roast and light bourbon
Flavor was swet, some chocolate. A bit watery and astringent. A shame because event horizon is a great beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours out pretty much black with a moderate tan head. Aroma is of some tobacco, soy sauce, Raspberry, chocolate, oak, brownie mix, light alcohol. Taste is solid, sweet/tart Raspberry, chocolate, tobacco, soy sauce, some oak, brownie mix, light alcohol, little notes of Bourbon, but the raspberries take over a bit. Solid beer, but almost a little too many things going on.

Fine beer meets fine bourbon barrels. Wonderfully rich and complex with delicious notes of bourbon and honey bunches of oats.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle about a year old. Aroma is chocolate covered raspberries with some roast and burnt wood. Tastes moderately sweet but the roast counters that well. Chocolate syrup, overripe raspberries, light charred wood. Awesome beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Bruisin' Ales. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Big raspberry and bourbon notes on the nose. Tart raspberries compete with boozy bourbon on the tongue. It's flavorful but I'm not sure the flavors complement each other very well on the tongue. Hides it's booze fairly well. Solid impy bourbon stout.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Jet black color with creamy brown head. Aroma has bourbon, raspberries and roasted malts, absolutely well integrated. Taste starts with a nice raspberry note, toffee, slight coffee bitterness and really well integrated bourbon notes. Body is medium-heavy and the ideal amount of carbonation for the style. Beautiful beer overall. Perfect combination of fruit and imperial stout.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottled 10/13/2015. Pours pitch black with a lasting creamy film of foam. Nose is rich with dark chocolate and vanilla. Some hints of soy sauce, oaked whiskey and berry. Flavor is sweet with chocolate, then some whiskey and raspberry. Oak and dry cocoa in the long finish. Heavy body has a smooth medium carbonation. Definitely a dessert beer and Iíd like it just a touch less sweet, but this one never gets overtly sticky and remains pretty drinkable.
