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.

The (not so) shit beer tasting at Leightons stratospheric flat. Opaque dark brown beer with a good pale tan head. Palate is airy, light and semi dry. The dark malts are not too heavy and carry just a touch of roast. Little malt cream and blackcurrant fruits. Touch of coffee. Light mildy bitter finish. Very drinkable.

500 ml bottle. Black pour, creamy tan head. Looks superb. Chocolate, coffee, wood, some leather in the aroma. Intense coffee, dark chocolate and bitter flavour. Thick, robust mouthfeel. Long, warming alcohol finish, touches of dark fruits. Lovely.

Bottle. Pours heavy black with a big but shortlasting Brown head. Slightly too sweet, otherwise a nice brew with chocolate, leather and some dark fruits.

Bottle shared with McTapps especially for Christmas. Well, it was not a disappointment. Dark as the night with millions of of roasted coffee malts, some dark chocolate and with a decent bitter finish. There is maybe a bit of sourness in the back, but that warm and dark chocolate will top it. Ah yes, and some alcohol is coming with it - but will not really notice it. Good one.

martjoobolut (744) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 25, 2013
0,5L bottle, BB 2023. Pours jet black with nice tan head. The head disappears rather quickly. Aroma is sweet, liquor, roast malt, slightly burnt, coffee. Taste is very roasty, coffee, hints of alcohol, dark chocolate bitterness, sweetness and fruits are in the background. Finish has strong lingering coffee bitterness with liquor and nice alcohol burn. It is full-bodied creamy with soft carbonation. Overall: really nice imperial stout.

McTapps (4143) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2013
Pours out of the bottle in a deep dark black colour with very low head and medium body. Aroma of malt and torf. Taste of rich malt, torf, vanilla, leaves, woods, forrest, caramel and nuts. Earthy hints. Beautiful taste and very nice to drink. High enjoyable.

Bottle from Drinkstore, Dublin [171213]
Lost the rate I wrote down....remember the scores though - recall this was a bit boozy - did have a floral edge. Aroma was more subdued than expected, some dark chocolate...perhaps not quite as good as I expected...it was a 3.7

MunBro (375) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
Pours pitch black with a foamy tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts, chocolate, toffee, caramel, burnt toast, cocoa, a hint of licorice. Taste is on par with the aroma. Delicious. Paired really well with dark roast meat and gravy for dinner. Body is rich and creamy, mininal carbonation so very easy drinking.
