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!

This one poured a dark dark brown with a tan head. Aroma was clean mellow bourbon, rich fudge, and roast malt. Flavor was roasted malt, dark and milk chocolate, and chewing tobacco and bourbon.

Bottle: The aroma consists of milk chocolate, maple syrup, coffee, faint molasses, and a touch of bourbon. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a small tan head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a very fine ring. The flavor starts with milk chocolate, molasses, and a touch of dark fruits. The finish has moderate maple syrup, light coffee, and vanilla/coconut. It’s medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and a slightly oily mouthfeel. Overall, I love barrel aged Imperial Stouts that have make syrup flavors so this is right up my alley.

2013 vintage. Thanks Chris! 22 oz. bomber into a tulip. Pours a thick black with three fingers of dark mocha foam. Loads of lacing. Nose is huge sweetness. Chocolate fudge, cocoa powder, honey, vanilla, and light roast. Taste is the same. Incredibly sweet chocolate fudge with honey and vanilla/oak in the background. So well integrated and balanced. On the sweeter end of stouts but the bourbon influence really keeps it in check. Smooth and thick mouth feel with a perfect abv. This is a phenomenal stout. Very sweet and sticky but the low abv makes it super easy going. Fantastic!

Blackest of black pour with a dark tan head. Aromas of bourbon, oak, chocolate, subtle coffee and lots of roasted malts. I could just sit here and smell this beer for an hour that’s how good it smells, wow! Taste doesn’t disappoint either. Plenty of bourbon barrel and cocoa with a wonderful roasty character. Absolutely delicious. Long smooth finish. Bottle from Ghetto1971 thanks a million man!

Probably the best bourbon stout brewed near where I live and I anticipate the release every year. Dark, luciuous, thick and heavy on the bourbon.

Holy bourbon batman! This is one fine example of a bourbon aged imp stout. Tastes of figs, cinnamon a bit of brown sugar. Large bourbon notes on the nose. Very well rounded beer. Would love to have another. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2015 February 21, 2014 - bottle via trade. Black pour with nice tan head that faded quickly, but nice lacing that stained the glass. Hoppy, malty and some bourbon in the aroma. Taste was malty, sticky sweet, bourbon and a mildly bitter finish. October 23, 2015 - taster glass sample at Darkness Eve. Had this again and bumped up to 4.0 from a 3.8.
