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!

stumpyiliz (212) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2013
Solid nose of vanilla, bourbon and caramel chocolate. Thick black pour. Fast dissipating beige head. Solid bourbon vanilla flavor with a smokey malt finish that dries the palate and lingers on the side of the tongue. The bottle I have says 8.5% abv and not 10%. This beer needs a lil more meat to its mouthfeel and flavor to balance out the whiskey aging.
