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!

stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2012
22oz bottle from Triangle wine in Southern Pines, NC, at the low-low price of $17. Jet-black pour with a ruby ring, minimal carbonation. The oak and bourbon is overpowering in the aroma, leaving little for anything else. A hint of chocolate, tons of alcohol, bourbon infused with an oaky aftertaste. Some dryness in the finish. Its quite good as long as youre in a seriously high gravity mood. One of the strongest beers Ive ever had. I think the 10% is more of an approximation, +/- another 10%.

yourilevesque (1602) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2016
Un liquide 8,5% dalcool possdant une texture et une complexit comparable ca quun stout imprial 12% ait de meilleur offrir. Robe noire et visqueuse. La faible mousse de surface ne tarde pas sclipser. Une fois retire, plus rien si cest nest des armes de chocolat et de bourbon ainsi libres. Beaucoup de confiseries mlanges des malts chauffs, du caramel cuit et de lextrait de vanille. Saveurs qui vont dans le mme sens que les armes avec un prime, une texture moelleuse qui tapisse mon palais de cette chaleur barrique. Un produit trs tonnant!

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2016 Thanks Jack for sharing bottle! Poured into a wineglass showing pitch black and no head. The nose shows moderately intense honey, maple, and molasses. The palate is subtly carbonated and thick bodied. Flavors of light molasses and honey. Mid palate of light nuts with a light alcohol spiciness. Finish is a latte bitterness with more maple and honey on the linger.

Vaporous, delicious bourbon malt aroma. Not pitch black, clear Good bomber, label. Woody, bourbon, vanilla, moderately sweet, raisiny. Leans boozy, but pleasantly so. Oily mouthfeel, finishes a bit too alcoholic and ragged. Thanks to someone at Proof.

Bottle 65 cl. Pours pitch black with a light brown head. Very sweet vanilla aroma from the Bourbon. Rich, sweet malty body, very subdued roastiness, palate is almost velvety due to the low carbonation. Sweet vanilla and Bourbon throughout. Candy in a bottle. 180816
