COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
cask and bottled, special
Brewed in the traditional style that became a favourite royal court, this limited edition Imperial Stout has been specially created as a single brew. In a unique addition to the historic recipe, the floral character of the Centennial hops is enhanced by the inclusion of rose buds, lending a hint of Turkish delight flavour to the beer. This Imperial Stout has a rich, dark appearance with strong chocolate and deep cherry notes which lead to a lighter, bitter finish.

TheJestersBeer (2032) - SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2014
500ml bottle. Where does the "Russian" come from? Pours almost totally black, with a brown head. Compact, rich, complex aroma, roasted malt, chocolate, licorice, coffee, caramel, ash, toffee, earth, faint smoke. Semi-sweet, full bodied, mid bitterness, creamy CO2. Complex, rich, balanced taste, roasted malt, coffee, licorice, dark chocolate, ash, hops, tar, soy, earth. Wonderfully balanced and smooth, this beer will last for years to come. Well Done, Mr Keeling! (2014-06-28) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Handpull at The Grove - Huddersfield. One of the Fullerís that I have been wanting to taste and blimey. Oily. Dark. Mysterious. Aroma of dark jammy fruits and danger. Subtle hint of winter bothy on the Cairngorm. I can see thi beer giving warmth and light in a cold dark place. Drobovyeh.

mile (2857) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle. Very dark brown, small to average mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, some roasted malt and light coffee, faint licorice. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish - sweetish flavor, some roasted malt and light bread with light coffee, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some roasted malt and light coffee, faint licorice and light hoppyness, some alcohol. Bit thin body considering the 10,7% - too much alcohol in the finish.

TBone (12333) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle 500ml from Alko Arkadia - "Fullerís Imperial Stout" - no Russian mentioned.
Dark black color, small beige head. Coffeish, roasted, liquerice, a bit milky and metallic nose. Full-bodied. Palate is smooth. Flavor has dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted, bready maltyness. Some kick of alcohol in the finish. Quite Fullerish flavor. Strong, robust, English, perhaps not quite an impy which I like but good one.
