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.

mile (2980) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle. Very dark brown, small to average mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, some roasted malt and light coffee, faint licorice. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish - sweetish flavor, some roasted malt and light bread with light coffee, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some roasted malt and light coffee, faint licorice and light hoppyness, some alcohol. Bit thin body considering the 10,7% - too much alcohol in the finish.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle 500ml from Alko Arkadia - "Fullerís Imperial Stout" - no Russian mentioned.
Dark black color, small beige head. Coffeish, roasted, liquerice, a bit milky and metallic nose. Full-bodied. Palate is smooth. Flavor has dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted, bready maltyness. Some kick of alcohol in the finish. Quite Fullerish flavor. Strong, robust, English, perhaps not quite an impy which I like but good one.

500mL bottle BB end of 2023!!! Seriously thick black looking stuff, holds a small deeply tanned head. Roasted nose, deeply complex; charred wood, dark chocolate, espresso, raisins, black plum, prune, odd bit of sulfur dioxide - might just be me! Full body certainly doesnít feel 10%+ though, alcohol has thinned it out a bit with a touch of warmth. Low carbonation, oily, chewy, creamy, yummy. Body opens out...lots of malt! Molasses, raisins, black roasted malt, toasted, nutty, lots of dark fruits, clove spice, wood, chocolate, plenty of bitterness, very long on the finish. Very good, a pleasant change to a swag hoppy American-style Imp Stouts!

Pours very very dark with cloudy big head. Tastes a bit bitter in the beginning but has a fantastic aftertaste. The aroma is nice

RexTalionis (2424) - FINLAND - APR 14, 2014
Bottled. Pours dark brown in color with a tan head. Roasted malts, cocoa, peat and leather in aroma. Even if itís slightly bitter at first in taste, thereís some milk chocolatey sweetness present. Licorice and dark fruits or hints of ripe cherries also. A bit on the dry side, but I do like the richness this brew offers. Thereís also that nice light smokyness and vinousness present in aftertaste. A positive surprise here with some bitter cocoa in finish. Go on KooKoo!
