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.

Bottle from Carlisle Celebrations. Black brownish pour. Moderate roasted malts on the nose along with some chocolate and liquorice. Taste is a moderation combination of sweet bitter chocolate and roasted coffee. Not a mind blower.

hawthorne00 (2434) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle, 13C. Black with a light tan head that retreats to the rim. Roasty aroma with molasses, cherries, figs, chocolate. Oily, carbonation is still a little higher than Iíd like. Bittersweet chocolate, less fruity than suggested by a sniff. A little ashy. Dry, bitter and slightly salty finish that just whisks the heaviness away. Pretty elegant drop.

Bottle. Brownish black with a tan head. Aroma is roast malt and liquorice. Flavour is dark fruit, malt, cheery and dark chocolate. Velvety mouthfeel on a long bitter finish

FatPhil (9358) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 14, 2014
500ml bottle (Stockmann, Tallinn)
Initial rating, 2014-02 (7:4+:7+:4:15=3.7++). Basically black, dark tight tan head. Lovely full roast, gently sweet, a touch chocolatey, maybe a little cakey, in the aroma. Smooth palate, gentle carbonation.Slightly raw mialty roast, sweetish, some tangy nettly hoppiness, and a birnt bitter bite too. Hint of stale coffee. Covers 10.7% very well. Does feel a bit young, I look forward to having one in 6-9 months time. (bought 4 bottles, so can stagger over time)

MattiasA (862) - MalmŲ, SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2014
Above average but not outstanding. Fullerís always deliver decent and classic ales, this is not an exception. Hard category to compete in though.
