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.

Ulfborg weekend celebration of nothing in particular. Black with a lasting, creamy, tan head. Aroma of licorice, chocolate, fruit and toffee, with a faint hint of signature marmalade. Sweetish roasted flavour with licorice and fruity notes. Full bodied with warming alcohol. Quite hard roasted, ashy finish

Sample at a Systembolaget tasting. Sweet and chocolaty smell with dark musty bread. Similar taste. Feels well made. Not a monster but very pleasant.

rosenbergh (6667) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2013
500 ml bottle. BBE 2023. Ruby & Fellas, Tampere, Finland. Pitch black colour with a small tan head. Roasted malt, berries and a whole lot of darkness in the aroma. The flavour is surprisingly easy and light for a 10.7% Imperial Stout. Roasted malt, berries, mild bitterness and some sweetness in the flavour. It could be better a bit more matured. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Sweet and boozy. Full bodied. Smooth. Notes of toffee, chocolate, dark fruits and burned sugar. A bit vinous. Superbly balanced. Powerful, yet enormously drinkable. Me like!
