4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle shared by Jeremy. Pours black in color with a medium sized thick tan head. The aroma has a great combination of roasted malts, dark bread, coffee, dark chocolate, fresh raspberries, caramel, honey with the expected barrel notes. The flavor has all the character of a big imperial stout; roasted malts, dark chocolate, dark caramel, a hint of coffee, and a splash of honey. This is enhanced withe oak, bourbon and a touch of vanilla from the barrel. Everything is topped off by the raspberry fruitiness. I thought everything worked together nicely.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fresh raspberry with black chocolate notes and some nice bourbon notes. Taste is a nice mix of fresh raspberry notes with some black chocolate notes and some bourbon and vanilla notes with light woody notes. Body is full with nice creamy texture. Greta beer with nice balance of flavours which raspberry providing an extra level of complexity to this beer. Wish this was available to me on a regular basis.

22 ounce bottle from Appalachian. Finally got around to opening. Pure black pour. Oil. Slick. Big bourbon notes. Maybe slight fruit from raspberries but I get that licorice stout taste.

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.
