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!

picked up this bottle at bestway after hearing much ado about it. i don’t think it really lived up to the hype, but it was delicious.aroma is sweet, and the wood aging is evident. i even think i can smell the honey. taste is sweet as well, very light roast flavors. lots of bourbon vanilla and honey. the palate is super slick, and sort of light at the same time. overall it was very good, but i felt the sweetness was a little out of balance. i guess i was expecting more robust roast and hops. good beer, drink it if you find it.

Aroma of tequila which is a turn off. Maybe some oaky smells. Flavor is strong whiskey with a chocolatey finish. Hard to finish this glass

Long finish, but no new flavors.

Cybercat (4841) - Georgia, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Pours coffee brown with a thin but serviceable dark tan head. Aroma features dizzying roast malt, chocolate, coffee, molasses and caramel notes. Flavor drags you in with molasses, licorice, roast malt, coffee, woody and semi-sweet chocolate tones. Whoa, no surprise this is high gravity - ha ha ha! You’ll think you’re on the USS Cygnus! (Esoteric movie reference.) Thick, viscous mouthfeel has some good fizz. Go beyond the event horizon!

MarcoDL (3746) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of Potjebier, thanks! Black pour, almost no head. Delicious aroma of rich vanilla, mild honey, bourbon booze and creamy choco. Smooth flavor of vanilla, bourbon, subtle honey sweetness, cream, caramelised malt and a mildly stingy bourbon finish. This is the good stuff.
