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.

750 ml bottle from Rays in Tosa. Cellared 3 months and ironically shared with the big boys. Very dark brown pour with a beige head. Aroma has coffee, chocolate, sweet malts, some lactose. Taste is of sweet chocolate, caramel, light lactose, some roastiness, a bit rough and quite sweet. Medium to full bodied with some alcohol presence. Finishes to the sweet side of bittersweet. Nice one 14.9

Pours with little to no head, dark chocolate color. I did not experience much of the coffee aroma or flavor as I had expected, but overall this is a very enjoyable beer. There is definitely a roasty quality to this beer, however as mentioned, I felt like there could have been a better focus on the coffee notes, but a solid beer all around!
