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.

oh6gdx (22073) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2015
Bottled. Pretty much black colour with a mediumsized beigeish brown head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is liquorice, chocolate, coffee, some fudge/toffee notes as well as mild herbal notes. Flavour is sweet liquorice, chocolate, coffee, nutty notes along with some fudge as well as some mild grassy and herbal notes. Hides the alcohol rather nicely. Very tasty.

blankboy (6444) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a very dark amber-brown, almost black, with an average size long-lasting frothy beige or light-brown head. Some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, alcohol, nuts, light hops, dark fruit and brown sugar. Flavour of roasted malt, leafy hops, alcohol and liquorice -- a tad disappointing, good but not as much as the aroma. Medium bodied. Very good beer.

Pyobon (1060) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 7, 2015
Rating #1000 - (Bottle) Black - well actually a very very dark reddish brown - with a thin beige head. Initially there was little aroma, mainly liquorice with ash hints, but as it stood the aroma developed nicely with black treacle, coffee, dark chocolate appearing and the ash note receding. Great palate - full bodied, oily, slightly sticky with nice carbonation that is both velvety and slightly prickly. Very rich flavour with a great balance between the distinct sweetness and the darker bitter tastes. The start is dark toffee with hints of dried fruit and cherries. Bitter dark chocolate and very dark roast malt notes develop. The finish is a lingering residual pleasant sweetness balanced with dark chocolate bitterness. Excellent beer.

50 cl systembolaget. Fullers absolut bästa öl. Kul eftersom ESB nog var min första kontakt med öl som smakade.
