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!

Bomber received in trade. Thank you bytemesis! Pours slightly viscous oily black with a small creamy mocha head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissiapting. Smell is malty and roasty with roasted malts, dark bread, vanilla fudge, charred wood, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, sweet liquorice candy, moist soil and bourbon alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty and roasty. Mouthfeel is soft, fat, oily, velvety, round, tiny roasted astringent, tiny boozy and full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, burnt caramel, dark bread, vanilla fudge, charred wood, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, sweet liquorice, toasted coconut, moist soil and bourbon alcohol. Intense fat and sweet imperial stout. A huge beer! Love it!

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2015 Huge beer in every way. Perfect pairing would be a cold winters night and a fire. Or a movie. Pours opaque and thick- nice tan head. Honey and bourbon definitely come through but not overpowering. Somewhat on the sweet side but in a good way. Nice smoky notes and super thick mouthfeel. It’s a serious beer. Delicious. Intense.

At Rich’s Massive Cellar Emptying Tasting. Event horizon pitch black with a thin tan head. Light coffee and chocolate flavor. Soft bodied. Syrupy sweet malt, bourbon and honey. A tasty surprise. as I knew nothing about this beer/brewery.

sebletitje (9073) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle @ Drink Rich’s American beer, thanks to Omgrich. Brune foncée col crémeux moka. Arôme offre pas mal d’effluves de Bourbon, malt léger, caramel, fruité noir. Rétro sur pointe de vanille et boisé. Palais est malté, caramel avec pas mal de booze qui se fait ressentir. Le tout reste cependant correct offrant pas mal de notes de Bourbon. Le tout est épais et liquoreux, fruité noir et une fine amertume des houblons arrivant en fin de bouche. Complexe, avec un Bourbon restant bien présent mais dont le caractère des malt parvient tjrs à être bien placé. Le tout est équilibré.

Mora2000 (6154) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 22, 2015
2013 vintage. Dark brown pour with a brown head. The aroma is full of chocolate, roasted malt, oak and whiskey. The flavor is similar. I get a bit of smoke plus some chocolate, roasted malt, oak and whiskey. As the beer warms I started to get more smoke and ash character. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
