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.

At Richs Massive Cellar Emptying Tasting. Event horizon pitch black with a thin tan head. Light coffee and chocolate flavor. Soft bodied. Syrupy sweet malt, bourbon and honey. A tasty surprise. as I knew nothing about this beer/brewery.

Bottle @ Drink Richs American beer, thanks to Omgrich. Brune fonce col crmeux moka. Arme offre pas mal deffluves de Bourbon, malt lger, caramel, fruit noir. Rtro sur pointe de vanille et bois. Palais est malt, caramel avec pas mal de booze qui se fait ressentir. Le tout reste cependant correct offrant pas mal de notes de Bourbon. Le tout est pais et liquoreux, fruit noir et une fine amertume des houblons arrivant en fin de bouche. Complexe, avec un Bourbon restant bien prsent mais dont le caractre des malt parvient tjrs tre bien plac. Le tout est quilibr.

2013 vintage. Dark brown pour with a brown head. The aroma is full of chocolate, roasted malt, oak and whiskey. The flavor is similar. I get a bit of smoke plus some chocolate, roasted malt, oak and whiskey. As the beer warms I started to get more smoke and ash character. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

@ Mega imperial stout tasting part 2. Pours pure black, creamy grey head. Smell is bitter, grainy, and big on bourbon. Taste is mildly bitter, very high on bourbon, roasted grains. Very intense, bit sweet. Very nice !
