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!

Scopey (7380) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2013. It pours opaque black with a medium dark tan head. The nose is wood, roasty, fudge, toffee, toast coconut, sweet vanilla and bourbon. The taste is thick, oily, roasted malt, coffee, earth, toast, decent bitterness, mild acidity, vanilla, dark fruit and tar. Medium+ body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Nice nose, but unfortunately didn’t find it that drinkable. A touch cloying. Decent nonetheless.

EdKing (1981) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle at ChrisO’s pre-GBBF Shindig 2013. Colour is very dark brown, opaque, thin tan head. Nose is black treacle, very sweet, oaky bourbon whiskey, Madeira barrels. Taste is very sweet black treacle, chocolatey, with strong bourbon whiskey notes, but the sweetness softens the hardness of the wood and whiskey.

reggiedunlop (3215) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Pours black with a medium mocha head. Aroma has lots of dark bakers chocolate. Flavor follows suit and adds layers of oak, burnt roastiness, and carmelized sugar. Mouthfeel is light/medium with a honey/roasty dry oaky finish.

demmbonz (589) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Shared bomber to snifters. Pours thick but not as thick as the regular impy. Taste is more along the lines of regular oak aged. Not much bourbon. Very good though.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours jet silky black with a small tan head. Aroma is super rich and dense, full of honey, woody oak, bourbon barrels and roasted malt - very complex. Flavour brings out rich deep honey notes, roasted malt, oak and bourbon barrels. All the flavours are melded beautifully together - the barrels blend wonderfully with the roast, and the honey is perfectly situated. Extremely complex, with a finish of all parts equal. Excellent stuff.

brnandersen (2024) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2013
Sample from 650 ml. bottle. Pitch black with a small, dense, tan head. Sweet aroma with rich, sweet roasted malts, alcohol, bourbon, oak, licorice and dark chocolate. Taste is sweet. Full body, creamy texture. Finishes roasted bitter with oak, vanilla and bourbon. Excellent stout. Bourbon aging really adds to this beer.
