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!

Kaatuu pikimustana, kultakatriinan värisellä vaahdolla, ihan ok viipyvyys. Ylimakea raikkaahko tuoksu, ehkä käynyttä luumua?. Suutuntuma leipäinen, kuohuva, alkoholinpoltteinen, raikas, hapokas.

olio (8470) - 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.

Bottle to glass. Thanks Taylor for sharing! Pours a deep brown to black with a thin rim of creamy brown head. Slight roasted malts, bourbon, oak, oats, vanilla, chocolate, sweet honey. Flavor is molasses, vanilla, chocolate malts with a solid roasted malt background. Surprisingly thin body, creamy, lingering bourbon and vanilla. Delicious beer.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, some oak and bourbon and vanilla, chocolate, sweetness from the malts, and maybe honey notes, some light hops, and dough. Flavor the same with a very nice blend of everything. Smooth texture. A solid imperial stout.

2013 bottle. Pours midnight black, motor oil-thick, no head at all. Aroma is floral, dark chocolate, boozy, charred wood. In the taste, you get that upfront sugary sweetness from the honey. It’s not overly sweet, but you know it’s there. I liked the honey inclusion here. Barrel notes are subtle and in the background but are present. Thick and chewy stout here. I couldn’t put the glass down!
