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!

Huge beer in every day. Perfect pairing would be a cold winters night and a fire. 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.

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 (6101) - 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.

@ Mega imperial stout tasting part 2. Pours pure black, creamy grey head. Smell is bitter, grainy, and big on bourbon. Taste is mildly bitter, very high on bourbon, roasted grains. Very intense, bit sweet. Very nice !

Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales. Rich sweet aroma of marshmallow and bourbon, light roasty notes. Super thick full body. Sweet honey, vanilla, and marshmallow taste with chocolate. A dessert beer for sure.
