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!

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2015 Huge beer in every way. Perfect pairing would be a cold winters night and a fire. Or a movie. 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. Its a serious beer. Delicious. Intense.
