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.

Bottle at home, I think approx two years old. Pours almost black, dark brown head. Nose is very rich and intense, chocolate, roast, liquorice, dried fruits, light cherry - fantastic aroma. Taste is oily and rich, liquorice, roast, chocolate, plenty of warming booze, dries fruits. Not as fantastic as nose but excellent brew. Straightforward in a good way, as many IS these days have loads of extra stuff, barrels etc. I wonder if the booziness would round with longer aging.

Druss (16) - Goulburn, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2016
Quite simply one of the best beers Iíve ever had. Lower carbonation. Huge chocolate, cherry, some prune notes. A nice bit of sweetness and a great creamy mouthfeel. Put simply, this is one of the best beers - let alone stouts - that youíll try. If you see it, donít baulk at the price...BUY IT!

SAMPLE 75 ml at tasting. BB 2024. Hm... smells like a dark Fullerís Vintage - mighty malty and jammy, molasses and sweet chocolate, interesting spicy clovy and rye bread notes. Good warming alcohol. Excellent.

Erasmus_ro (2450) - Alabama, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, black with some, latte-colored head. Aroma is plenty of roast, some liquorice, light smoke, earthiness. Taste is very roasted, slight smoke, some liquorice, slightly of the salty kind, some tar/peat, slight coffee. A hint of salty liquorice/tar candy. Full with decent carbonation. While you can feel the strength in the beginning, you quickly forget how strong this actually is. Getting through half a liter on your own is superbly easy. tšytelšinen, kohtuu hh
