COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mainly bottle conditioned; Special. Has been seen on cask.

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.

UXO (1339) - CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Appearance: nearly opaque black with just a hint of clear brown at the margins, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: cocoa, lactose, liquorice, red berries, floral, metallic. (6/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, high bitter. (5/10) Palate: full body, soft carbonation, big boozy bitter finish. (3/5) Oof. Big, hot, heavy, and slightly metallic. Holy hell, Iíve had this sitting for over a year, and itís still hot and metallic? Clearly this thing ainít gonna settle down any time in the foreseeable future. Aggressive and unbalanced, but on the other hand itís boozy as hell, which is frankly never a bad thing. Plus, thereís the big bitter finish, so itís not a total wash. (12/20)

maekchu (3304) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 21, 2016
Bomber. Gift from Neko-chan. Best by 2023, so perhaps a tad young. Large fruity nose, with raisins and plums, coffee, some floral hops peeking out, and a touch of ash. Dark brown/black, rocky tan head. Moderately heavy dark roast malt initial, fruity and tangy in mid palate with plums, soy sauce, fair bittering, and a lightly salty finish. Medium-heavy body, smooth and warming. Well-balanced and flavorful.

500ml bottle. Dark brown body with a low head. Chocolate, some lactose, a hint of molasses and a tiny bit of soil in the aroma. Flavor starts off sweet, with milk chocolate with increasing roasted flavors. Some dark dried fruits and soy lingering in the background. Finishes a bit fry with long floral notes.

Review from memory. Dark fruits, roasted malt, chocolate and some cocoa. The taste follows the same note, a very good balance between dark chocolate and dark cherries.
