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!

Bottle during RBWG 2013. Black pour with a small tan head. Roast, caramel, fudge, vanilla, and bourbon on the nose with maybe a touch of honey. The flavor follows suit, very nice. Delish!

mcberko (9204) - 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.

Full body, creamy texture. Finishes roasted bitter with oak, vanilla and bourbon. Excellent stout. Bourbon aging really adds to this beer.

22. Thank you, alex, for hooking up a taste of this, and thank you david for this wee dram. Fuck this beer is ridiculous and then some. You other beers need to get a hold of yourselves and sack up. Pours jet black with a dense and creamy dark tan head. Huge honey, oak, vanilla, espresso, roast, and caramel nose. All perfectly integrated, all raised to a higher power in the combination. Luscious mid palate, tartly tangled in a sweet and roasty combo. Absolutely spectacularly assembled.
