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!

Shared bottle. Pitch black with a thicker brown head. Awesome deep nose with lots of cool stuff going on, chocolate, roasted malt, toast, good stuff from the bourbon barrel. Quite sweet but some bitterness to balance. Oily, thick, chewy, with a long finish. Really nice treat.

Pour at tasting. Pours very dark with slight beige head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts and bourbon. Taste is more of the same, bourbon is really smooth, I liked this one.

Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Dark black hue with tan head that dissipated. Aroma is huge malt bomb, stone fruit, chocolate, molasses, honey, careless. Mouthfeel is fantastic with full body and light carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a nice astringent following and an ethanol finish. Overall this is fantastic!

Bought a bomber of this while down in Chapel Hill for work. Heard it was good and sort of sought after around here. Poured jet black with a 1.5 inch dark brown head. Lots of boozy smell. Very sweet smelling. Reminds me of the smell of melting chocolate. Some mild fruit aromas as well. Very tasty. Lots of boozy bourbon flavor. More than most barrel aged beers. Lots of roasty sweet chocolate flavors. Slightly raisin and floral tasts. Pretty good. Very heavy though. I’m sitting in my hotel room by myself. Wish I had someone to share this with. Might be hard to get through.

Advocate_Ames (568) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Pours dark with a sticky mocha foam head. The aroma is of sweet bourbon booze, vanilla, oak, honey, chocolate, and had a rich malt presence. In the flavor I picked up on booze, sweet bourbon, vanilla, and a complex sugary sweet roasted malt taste. The finish had a weak lingering licorice, semi sweet, and lightly bitter quality. Overall this was a fine beverage and worth enjoying.
