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.

500ml bottle shared with Finn at Fullers Spreadeagle. Espresso head, two-finger thick. Spotty lacing. Deep rosewood coloured body. Inviting aroma of roasted malts and dark fruits. Comprehensive taste profile including moments of cocoa, vanilla, smoke, plums and a slightly touch of molasses. Lingering warming heat to the ending. Full bodied. Smooth on the swallow. Lovely sipper (Croydon 27.11.2015).
