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!

Shared at Craft Ale. Poured hazy black with tan head. Nose was oaky bourbon, dark malt, cacao, anise, molasses. Tasted rich, with big malt, heavy oak, vanilla, bourbon, black licorice, and late honey. Great beer.

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.

Style et résumé: Imperial stout miel et bois.
Comment: Dégustation Manseau 2016. Bottling date 12/18/14
Portrait: Une robe brune avec une rond de mousse qui colle aux parois. Un nez d’alcool, de mélasse verte avec beaucoup de mélasse et une touche de miel. Une bouche piquante, forte avec de la mélasse. Une finale longue qui pique la langue.
Note: 7+/10

Black pour from 22oz bottle at home. Spicy and cocoa coffee flavor. Sweet and syrupy. Pretty good. A one glasser

Christpuncher (3188) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2016
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

PotjeBier (3505) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2016
Bottle (date Dec. 2014) from de Bierkoning @ Beer Temple, shared with Abijn & MarcodL. Black color. Brown head. Aroma’s: sweet, bourbon, vanilla, light honey. Retronasal it’s moderate sweet, wood, vanilla, alcohol, bourbon. Flavor is moderate sweet with a light fruity sourness. Alcohol definitely feels stronger than 8.5%. Medium bodied. Long finish, but no new flavors.

4.6
Cybercat (5962) - 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!
