COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fulton War and Peace is a Russian Imperial Stout conditioned with whole bean Peace Coffee in the fermentation tank. It’s an epic work of beer, but unlike the novel, this beer is brief and fleeting, appearing just once a year in February. Historic quantities of chocolate malt and roast barley clash over a field of dark roast Peace Coffee beans. Like Tolstoy’s masterpiece, it may take some time to finish and require some thought along the way. But by the end, we think you’ll find yourself better for the effort.

This wasn’t for me. I appreciate what went into this hence the higher score but this is all about the coffee. This smells and tastes like someone put coffee beans and alcohol into a blender and hit the on button. Very earthy and all coffee. Almost salty on the finish. No thanks.

blklab2007 (2091) - Connecticut, USA - APR 27, 2014
Bottle poured a black in color with a coating of brown head that fell away. Aroma has coffee, mild chocolate, alcohol, and dark malts. Mouth feel is hefty with slow carbonation. Flavor is heavy on the malts, big black coffee, plenty of roast, and dark chocolate. It has an oat like thickness and the coffee is super amped up.

Bottle from AV3, pours a nice dark coffee color with a super thin head. Aroma is a lot of coffee roast, some chocolate, and some sweet malt. Taste is some malt, dark roast coffee, decent hop bitter, good offering from Fulton. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

March 6, 2015 - on tap at Busters. Dark brown pour with limited head that didn’t last. Aroma was chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Taste was consistent with aroma. Finish was dry and heavy on the alcohol, and lingered for a while in the aftertaste.

750ml bottle to snifter. Pours oily black brown with a nice khaki tan tight foamy head that slowly fades to a sudsy film and collar along with subtle lacing. Aroma is smooth strong coffee and roasted malt and some hidden bakers chocolate and soy. Taste is great bitter velvet bakers chocolate and coffee along with soy and roasted malt. Palate is full rich and oily along with a chalky dry finish. This is fantastic! Really smooth and delicious!

Bottle. Pours black with little head. Nice aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and coffee. Flavor matches the aroma well, thinner mouthfeel than I had anticipated. Solid offering.
