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!

2010 bottle. Pours a pitch black color with a tan head. Aroma is of bourbon, vanilla oak, bourbon soaked dark fruits, roasted malt, dark roast coffee, fudgey chocolate notes and some honey nose. Flavor follows the nose with lots of bourbon, yet it is still quite balanced, I get roasted malt, fudgey chocolate and honey notes, vanilla, oak, coffee and bourbon soaked dark fruits. The body is full with a nice creamy mouth feel. Overall a great Imperial Stout! Thanks to Peter for sharing!

Bottle sample at Muckfest V on 7/12/14. Pitch black pour with a medium tan head. Bitter dark chocolate nose with licorice, bourbon and molasses notes. Sweet malt and chocolate flavor with some licorice before a boozy bourbon finish.

DalzAle (1965) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle thanks to Woodchopper on BA! Dark black pour, thin lacing and an aroma of light peat, chocolate and mellow bourbon. Flavor is also a well done meld of chocolate, peat and sweet bourbon which rounded out the edges on all the flavors. Well done, nothing bad to say about this one.

Got a bottle a few bottles in a trade. It pours a very dark black. A thick dark colored head. A big honey alcohol covered chocolate aroma. All different flavors all flow together at once. Very smooth. Soothing and drinkable.

Erzengel (2397) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 16, 2014
Thanks to John for sharing! 2013 release. Very great roasted vanilla in the nose. The beer starts sweet, smooth, probably too sweet, nice roasted, fresh, slightly bitter. The mainpart is quite sweet, roasted, molasses. Intense honey, wood. Smooth vanilla-burbon-aroma, very fresh, intense, sweetish, thick.
Great, but probably a bit too sweet! 12/12/12/12

Thanks John!! Pours a super dark brown/black with a rich tan head. The smell is bourbon, molasses, wood. The taste is similar to the nose with some rich fruit, roasted malt with a dry finish. Medium full body with nice carbonation.

Bottle courtesy of max. Pours a deep black with dark brown lacing. Aroma is rich raisin and dark chocolate roast. Mouthfeel is rich and full with notes of dark chocolate, espresso with five packets of sugar, earthy rooty roast and light maple. Great imperial stout.

22oz bottle, tasted at GreatMoloko’s place.. Black wax. 2013 vintage. Black color. Thin darker brown head. Dots of lace. Nice chocolate, coffee, some honey in the nose. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Light chewiness. Some light tart tannic... Moderate sweet. Alright stuff, for me.
