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!

Rich full bodied with a chocolate coffee aroma with roast malt and vanilla. The flavor is similar with whiskey, vanilla and wood. Really long lasting finish.

Pours a good black with a beige rim that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is of chocolate, booze and bourbon. Taste is moderately sweet and bitter, flavors mostly of chocolate. Full body, medium carbonation. Light hot alcohol but it is never disturbing. A nice dessert again!

Bottle (22 oz) at tasting. Thanks to Matthew for this bottle! Black with a small brown head leaving little lacing. Aroma is of bourbon, vanilla, roasted malts, toffee, honeyed sweetness and fruity raisins-like notes. Taste is sweet but not overly so with roasted malts, bourbon, vanilla, oak, honeyed sweetness and mild fruitiness. Full body. Medium carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Honeyed finish with a light alcohol warmth. Very good Imperial Stout. Feels heavier - not in a bad way - than the abv suggest. Tasty stuff.

Le nez me fait penser un hydromel noir. Pas vilain mais diffrent et singulier. Au got, les tentacules du bourbon se lovent autour dune mlasse riche. En bouche, le corps est huileux et collant. En finale, cest doux et sans relle amertume, pleine de bourbon caramlis avec un souffle fin de malts rtis. Trs bon.
