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!

Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2013

Bottle thanks to trev1179 (BA). Aroma is almost identical to blacknote. Lots of bourbon and chocolate. Touch of heat but not as much as most. Milk stout aftertaste. Palate is a little thin compared to most bba stouts. Lots of carbonation.

Steve_0 (3346) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Draft at GABF. Pour is dark black in appearance with a frothy brown head and great lacing. Coffee, raisins, dark fruits, huge bourbon, vanilla, figs, caramel, and toffee aroma. Taste is again big raisins, figs, plums, molasses, some roasty and earthiness with some black licorice and anise - somewhat tangy on the back-end. Thick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Very tasty, but not very cohesive.
