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

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.

Kauge (1055) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle at Hell Hunt in Tallinn (Ä 10). BB 2023. Full on black. Thick dark beigeish head. Drops rather quickly, leaving a thin layer. Really roasty, plums and balsamic sauce, only slightly alcoholic at first, more later on. Thick, sticky, sweet, light, grainy palate. Nettley herbal bitterness in the finish. Itís very good but far from being excellent.

DYCSoccer17 (3551) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 11, 2015
500mL bottle purchased at Viti in Vancouver, BC. The aroma on this is very nice with hints of molasses and vanilla extract. Some chocolate is also present as well as an oxidized envelope glue like note. Quite pleasant and very quaffable. Scantly transparent dark mahogany body present with a small, khaki-colored head. Starts with a hefty, full-bodied sweet roastiness with lots of dark chocolate. The middle has some wood and a little oxidation present. Finishes with a bit of an interesting almost saltiness. Could stand to have just a little more carbonation. Warming. Enjoyable.

klm1 (700) - - SEP 3, 2015
Pours oily black opaque colour with creamy, stable brown head. Aroma with mild noticable alcohol and with hints of chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Flavor: alcohol is mild noticable, with strong note of coffee and chocolate, hints of vanilla, dried dark fruits. Malt sweetness is medium, hop bitterness also ( esters of dark fruits and grapefruit). Body is mouth-coating, carbonation is low. Very proper imperial stout, made in modern english manire, but still somehow one-dimensional in comparison with very best examples of its style.

SlackerMads (2467) - DENMARK - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle. Black with a large brown head. Nose has molasses, chalk, chocolate, roasted malt, light caramel. The flavour is more roasted that expected from the nose. Wood, vanilla, roasted malt, charcoal, cocoa, brown sugar. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Light salty, filling sweetness, balanced bitterness, warming alcohol. Good.

KoNrRiI (962) - Ňrhus, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2015
0.5 bottle. Entirely black color and a medium, brownish head. Aroma of toasted malts, delicate saltiness, a powerful roast, and some chocolate. Taste is malty, roasty, chocolatey, contains hints of prunes, and some treacle - little to no coffee. Full body, thick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is long, bittersweet, malty, syrupy, follows the taste quite closely. Overall a splendid beer, its thick character and a relatively soft carbonation are the essence of a good stout.
