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.

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.

Spinebrainin kanssa maailmaa parantamassa. Oikein mainio ja tunkkainen. Kaikki tasapainossa kuten aina Fuller’sin oluissa.

Pullo @ Uba & Humal, Tallinna. Kaatuu snifteriin sysimustana, noin sormen paksuisen vaahdon suojaamana. Tuoksussa on todella vahvaa paahteen ja lakritsin yhdistelmä, makean marjaisen liköörimäisyyden ja tumman hedelmän kanssa. Kuin vahvan belgin ja IS:n sekoitus. Maussa vahvimpana on suolainen lakritsisuus, joka on jo hieman salmiakin puolella. Lisänä on hyvää leipäistä paahteisuutta, suklaata ja hiven tummaa hedelmäisyyttä. Suutuntuma on melko paksu ja täyteläinen, lievä humalan katkeruus nappaa kielelle kiinni. Upea imperial stout, tuoksu ja maku hyvin tasapainossa. Olen tällaisten lakritsisten/salmiakkisten IS:ien suuri ystävä ja tämä toimi älyttömän hyvin.
