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.

Bottle. Pours opaque black, medium creamy tan head, dissipates leaving nice residual and lacing. Aroma is super roasty, mocha, cold press coffee, cocoa, hint of green pepper. Flavor is light plus sweet,, medium plus bitter, lots of coffee and roast, light green pepper not really a major distraction though. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. A hint of heat.

Extremely subtle aroma hinting of chocolate and almost flat, headless pour gives the impression that it’s a lackluster imperial stout . Quite fortunately, wave upon wave of flavors and sweetness of varying intensities greatly enliven the brew once poured into your mouth. Very satisfying when enjoyed on draft.

AWISLguy (2081) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 27, 2015
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

volbeerman (24) - Madison, Tennessee, USA - NOV 21, 2015
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!

arkurzynski (2008) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Blackish brown. Nose of nutty coffee, roast, and bitter chocolate. Flavor is slightly acidic nutty roast coffee with roast malt, and semisweet chocolate. Tacky, sticky finish. Pretty good.

Well done! Pours a deep brown / black with a tan head. Aroma is full of coffee. Full bodied and slick on the tongue. Finishes bitter coffee.

Bottle to glass. Pours a pitch black color with a creamy tan head. Aroma has a huge coffee presence, with a slight vegetal character. Flavor is roasty, coffee. Medium body with a lingering burnt coffee character. Not bad.
