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!

Bottle thanks at RBWG 2014, thanks! Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of hot bourbon with a bit of chocolate, dark grains and light roast. Flavor has lots of dark chocolate with bitter dark grains and a bit of hot bourbon.

Bottle pours black with foamy cocoa head. Aroma chocolate and bourbon. Taste dark chocolate, malts, roast, vanilla. Thick rich creamy palate. Finish cocoa, oak, slight hops. I was surprised it’s only 8.5%, tastes boozier. Really good beer.

Ferris (12130) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle - Bourbon, dark rich malts, molasses and a great rich sweetness. Jet black with a rich brown head. A little soy and dark chocolate followed bit a bit of coffee and a bit of sourness. Lots of flavor, but well balanced and very drinkable.

2011 bottle. Black pour, brown head. Nose is rich cocoa, roasted malts, honey. Taste is decadent chocolate cake drizzled with honey. Medium-full smooth mouthfeel. Was not expecting this to be so good.

Pours a thick deep brown with a caramel colored head. Beautiful beer. Aroma is bourbon, wood, caramel, cappuccino, dark chocolate, vanilla, molasses. So many different things come through in the aroma. Very impressive. Taste is baked chocolate, roasted coffee beans, booze, vanilla, and honey. The flavor is good, but it’s not quite as epic as the aroma and appearance of this beast. Mouthfeel is slick and full. Overall, this is a great beer. The flavor is lacking that "it" factor to make this a truly elite beer. Regardless, it’s still worth seeking out.

BlowOffTube (501) - Michigan, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Pours black with a tan head. Oily on the side.of the glass and.mouth feel. Chocolate and Bourbon aroma. Silky medium body chocolate vanilla and bourbon in the middle and a dry bitter finish. Little carbonation. Good but missing something in the beginning of a sip... flavor kicks in late.

Bottle. Oily black pour with short lasting khaki head. Intense aroma with alcohol, chocolate, and cocoa powder as the dominating notes. Flavors of molasses, cocoa powder, vanilla, and dark fruit. Warming alcohol finish, drinks like a much higher ABV beer. Very slight bitterness, and the finish is a bit hot, like drinking a watered down bourbon. I wouldn’t notice the honey unless I was looking for it, but I do think it smooths it out and cuts any cocoa powder bitterness.
