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!

very rich flavouful is. on the sweeter side. bourbon not overpowering the roast. while i thought the honey added thickness and preserved flavour over 4 years i still am skeptical about the use if honey and syrup.subdued hop despite ageing promise.

65 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 12.12.2015
Bottle from a trade thanks Jason! Aroma has alcohol, licorice, sweet cocoa tones and hints of tobacco. Flavour has rubbery notes, cocoa, ash, slightly salty licorice and alcohol. Also bourbon tones with vanilla and wood. Reminds me of Goose Island BCS.

Aromat kakaowy, mleczny, kawowy. Smak słodki, lekko gorzki. Kakao i kawa, trochę paloności. Świetne złożone piwo z fajną gładką fakturą.
