Strong cherry aroma and flavor. Just a little hint of honey and chocolate. Head does not last long but is beautiful. Full palate that leaves you craving chocolate.

Bottle at dirty Matts, courtesy of the dirtiest of Matts. Opaque black with a forthy cola head. Raspberries are present but not overwhelming, complement the bittersweet baking chocolate and bourbon, espresso, almost burnt malts, vanilla bean and oak. Full body and mild carbonation, smooth and easy to drink with a nice complex and long finish.

markextrae (4120) - Alingss, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2016
Bottle shared by a friend. Poured a deep dark black colour with a dark tanned head. Still a huge amount of fresh sweet raspberries in the nose, still after that age for a 13 vintage! Deep sweet bakers chocolate, oak, sweet bourbon, marshmallow, espresso beans, sweet vanilla, big fresh raspberry jam. Lovely aftertaste. Full bodied, with a big bourbon covered raspberry finish. Loved it

Boutip (6014) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fresh raspberry with black chocolate notes and some nice bourbon notes. Taste is a nice mix of fresh raspberry notes with some black chocolate notes and some bourbon and vanilla notes with light woody notes. Body is full with nice creamy texture. Greta beer with nice balance of flavours which raspberry providing an extra level of complexity to this beer. Wish this was available to me on a regular basis.

drfabulous (6909) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUL 8, 2016
22 ounce bottle from Appalachian. Finally got around to opening. Pure black pour. Oil. Slick. Big bourbon notes. Maybe slight fruit from raspberries but I get that licorice stout taste.

Dark pour with lightly translucent rim. Nose is fresh raspberry and oak, smokey malts. Taste is dry with great fresh raspberry flavor, dark and ashy malts, dark bitter chocolate. Definitely drier and more bitter than I expected.

Beerman6686 (6431) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2016
Poured a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma was big artificial raspberey, roast and light bourbon Flavor was swet, some chocolate. A bit watery and astringent. A shame because event horizon is a great beer.
