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.

Sample at Winterfest. Stronger coffee aroma and flavor on this one. Misses the mark slightly in a bit off putting aftertaste and mineral-ly palate.

Fairly old growler, need to try fresher. Not quite black, little head. Roasty coffee aroma. Tasrte is smooth and chocolately. Smooth and nice.

vikingguy (891) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Black. Sweet malt aroma. Taste is very rich. Notes of dark fruit, chocolate and coffee. Also some alcohol. Thick and full bodied. This was pretty good but so rich I couldn’t drink it all.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2013
750 ml bottle served in a Jester King Chalice. Shared in line at KBS. A: Pours a dark black color with a tan head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring that leaves some splotchy lace down the glass. S: Roasted malts with a ground coffee bean note. Mild hints of sweet espresso with some pale sweet oats and a little dark fruits. Unsweetened chocolate as well. T: Heavily roasted malts with espresso bean sweetness. Bitter coffee grounds with a mild dark fruit character. Some chocolaty notes as well. M: Medium to heavy bodied with a medium carbonation level. Bitter and roasty finish. O: Solid offering, although I prefer Worthy Adversary to this beer. The coffee bean was a little too bitter for my liking and needed another level of complexity to put this in the upper echelon of coffee beers. Serving type: bottle

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2010
Pours a dark, opaque espresso brown with no head. Aroma is strong mix of nuts and dark coffee. Flavor is a rich frothy coffee (dark roast) with almond essence. Body is creamy with light carbonation.

bookman10 (718) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Pours a dark, oily, brown-black with tawny head. Aroma of fruit, chocolate, coffee. Flavor is quite sweet, with pronounced coffee up front. Anise and dark fruit and quite a noticeable booziness. It’s a good stout and a nice winter beer.

fiveacestx (718) - Texas, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Bomber received in trade - Generous pour creating a nice light brown head. Has a nice coffee and mocha aroma and taste. Good roasted malts. Creamy and smooth. I like it.

Nsanders (680) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Tap at Pizza Luce. Black with a thin light brown head. Rich malts, milk, alcohol and light roasted coffee. Taste has a malty sweetness followed with a light dry coffee bitterness. Body is lighter for an imperial stout with a bubbly water feel.

camborne (656) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Nice mocha nose. Flavor follows suit with added coffee and bitter sweet chocolate. More drinkable now then worthy adversary. Will cellar and check out.

bomber from co-worker Jeff...nose is coffee and maybe some malt...taste is the same with a tobacco and leather taste mixed in...i would like some kind of dark berry taste...beer would be a lot better with it...decent but needs improving...(#465)
