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.

GregClow (2977) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep almost-black with a creamy dark tan head. Aroma and flavour of dark bitter chocolate, dark roast coffee, licorice, a vein of deep molasses sweetness, a bit of burnt wood, and a subtle suggestion of rose. Big, bold body that feels full and lush on the palate. Lovely stuff that it may be worth grabbing a few bottles of for aging.

Muita expectativa para tomar essa cerveja. Apresentou cor negra com média formação de espuma marrom que mantém uma fina camada perene durante toda degustação. Aroma maravilhoso, notas de torrefação, lúpulo, baunilha, chocolate amargo, frutas vermelhas e sugestão de café. O sabor acompanha o aroma, se destacando o chocolate amargor, a baunilha e as frutas vermelhas, já o lúpulo e o café surgem no retrogosto com agradável dulçor e amargor. Encorpada com baixa drinkability e final longo, já o álcool está muito bem inserido e não é percebido. Quase perfeita!!! Agora é guardar a outra garrafa por 10 anos e fazer nova avaliação.
