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.

eduardovl (1104) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 27, 2014
500ml bottle served in a tulip glass. Best before end 2024. A: First of all, beautiful art. It comes in a purple box. Simple but very nice purple label. Pours a very dark brown to oil black color forming a small and solid beige head. Medium retention and only few spotty and lingering lacings left in the glass. However, a thin layer remains forever on the top. S: Reach nose. Strong notes of dark chocolate and roasted malts in upfront followed by strong notes of cherry and licorice. Dark dry fruits like raisins and dates. Great flowery and grassy hoppy notes. A bit of alcohol can be felt in the end. T: Sweet upfront. Strong notes of dark chocolate, roasted malts, wood, licorice, coffee, raisins, dates and grassy hops. Hints of cherry and Bourbon. Warming. Great intense and persistent bitter end. Mix of roasted malts and grassy hops. M: Heavy, creamy and molasses body. Medium to low carbonation. Bittersweet aftertaste with hints of chocolate, coffee beans and grass. O: Good drinkability. Excellent British Russian Imperial Stout.

GregClow (2990) - 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.
