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!

Poured inky black with a deep brown head. Aroma is of bourbon and slight chocolate. Taste is heavy malt, alcohol, chocolate, oak wood and honey finish. Carbonated enough to please the palate. Top 5 in my book for stouts and top 10 in overall beera.

Prufrockstar (1500) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle (2012), thanks to drfabulous. Sampled next to OH Imperial Stout. From notes: Pours thick and viscous, like motor oil. Aroma is full on fudge brownie; roast dialed down from imp stout. Honey present in the taste as well; slick, viscous, velvety ... really nice.

rosenbergh (8556) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Bomber. Vintage 2013. From a trade with jcnielsen. Thanks a lot Justin! Enjoyed at the ISKTR 2014. Black colour with a small brown head. Whiskey sweetness, vanilla, roasted malt, hops and bitterness in the aroma. The flavour is roasted malt, vanilla, whiskey, a lot of sweetness and mild bitterness. Rich and smooth but still rather easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jultsu (289) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Kaatuu pikimustana, kultakatriinan värisellä vaahdolla, ihan ok viipyvyys. Ylimakea raikkaahko tuoksu, ehkä käynyttä luumua?. Suutuntuma leipäinen, kuohuva, alkoholinpoltteinen, raikas, hapokas.

olio (7528) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
65 cl bottle @ ISKTR 2014. 2013 vintage.
Pours pitch black color with a nice small beige head, oily pour. Very nice bourbon burst on the nose, roasted malts, some espresso notes, vanilla and cocoa. Bitter malty palate, roast notes, bourbon, some vanilla and molasses. Very rich and complex, surprisingly easy to drink and velvety palate. Heavy and excellent brew.

650ml bottle @ ISKTR 2014, Thanks rosenbergh!

2013 vintage - Pours pitch black with a beautiful brown head. Aroma of bourbony butter sweetness, roasty malts, hints of coffee, hops, honey and dark chocolate. Taste is sweetish, roasty and quite smooth with loads of bourbony notes, vanilla, toffee, wood, oak and honey. Finish is sweetish, woody and roasty with notes of oak, vanilla, toffee and honey. Quite slick but complex and balanced.
