A strong black beer that perfectly combines the deep chocolate malt aroma and flavour with the mild fragrance and taste of roses ti give you a beer of exceptional character and complexity.

330 ml bottle. Black color with almost no head. Aroma is rose.. Full of rose water, perfume. Taste is sweet and acidic like aroma, you taste the roses. Light to medium oily body with soft carbonation.

The rose water gives too much rose aroma and taste. Some may like it as it is different but definitely not my thing. It is good beer, but not great.

Great appearance. The test is a bit light for me but overall it’s a pretty good soft beer. It was really interesting for me to try a beer with rose water but unfortunately couldn’t sport anything particular about it.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2016 22-MAY-2016. SAMPLE 50 ml at a tasting. Rosewater, rosewater and rosewater again. Nothing but rosewater and greenish mediocre and flat stout behind it. Drinkable. 5-3-6-3-11=2,8/5.

13-SEP-2015. BOTTLE 33 CL. at 7,3% abv. Opaque black with brown edges, almost no head (unfortunately, the cap had a nice deep dent - but no leaks!). The aroma was actually quite pleasant, rose perfume on a light roasty, even smoky, background, some burnt leather maybe? The taste is worse. Almost flat (is it the cap?). Dry, with a dry and astringent peppery young stout character. Much less roast (forget chocolate and coffee etc.). 6-3-6-3-12=3,0/5

Good beer. Fantastic extraordinary chocolate aroma, I havent tried such choco aroma, so sweet like belgian chocolate, like Lindt, or Mozart chocolate. No much head. It is written that its imperial stout on the bottle - NO IT IS NOT! No sparkling. Nice black pepper notes, this is first stout I try and that can be eaten with meat. Nice roasty character. A little bit sweet and lambic taste. Nice Bulgarian Rose aroma. Good beer!

Poured from the 500ml nicely-labeled bottle into a snifter. The carbonation is low. The colour is black with a brownish, medium head. So far – it looks like a typical example of a stout. The nose is very pleasant - with a bunch of roses and a reminiscence of dark chocolate. The taste is complex - there is a lot more chocolate than on the nose, but one can still feel the roses and the two flavours blend together very well. The hops are well balanced. The yeast gives a slightly earthy flavour and combined with the other flavours, it gives the illusion of a freshly baked cake. A surprising and extremely interesting brew! It will definitely reveal more of its secrets paired with foods.

Smells like turkish delight mixed with rich soil with boozy aromas. The rose is hard to get past. Opaque dark brown with a very slightly pink hue, the head is yellowy with an aolmost indistinguishable touch of red. Flavour is super rosy, a sharp, citrussy sensation too, not sure where that’s coming from but it makes me imagine it represents the thorns of the roses. There is also a pepperyness, perhaps where the hotness is coming from? Texture is grippy and full bodied. As I get used to the rosewater flavour it becomes less hard hitting but still interesting. Absurdly unusual but hopefully in the future we will see more of this sort of thing.
