This limited edition brew is a unique collaboration between brewery and beer writer. Melissa Cole brought her vast experience to the tasting table and helped us deliver a stout worth writing home about.

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.

KoNrRiI (1229) - Århus, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2015
0.5 bottle. Entirely black color and a medium, brownish head. Aroma of toasted malts, delicate saltiness, a powerful roast, and some chocolate. Taste is malty, roasty, chocolatey, contains hints of prunes, and some treacle - little to no coffee. Full body, thick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is long, bittersweet, malty, syrupy, follows the taste quite closely. Overall a splendid beer, its thick character and a relatively soft carbonation are the essence of a good stout.

Flaska från SB, snart två år gammal. Stor rund söt IS där lagringen börjat märkas lite. Torkad frukt, särskilt russin, fudge, chokladfondant, kaffe. Relativt lättdrucken, silkeslen och riktigt god.

GlassBrass440 (315) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 19, 2015
Pours ink black with a quickly receding brown head. Spare aromas of caramel, milk chocolate, and burnt sugar. Flavours bring treacle, semi-sweet chocolate, and caramel with really interesting floral note in the late palate. The thin body quickly turns full with a long, bitter finish.
