COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mainly bottle conditioned; Special. Has been seen on cask.

This limited edition brew is a unique collaboration between brewery and beer writer. Melissa Cole brought her vast experience to the tasting table and helped us deliver a stout worth writing home about.

Brewed in the traditional style that became a favourite royal court, this limited edition Imperial Stout has been specially created as a single brew. In a unique addition to the historic recipe, the floral character of the Centennial hops is enhanced by the inclusion of rose buds, lending a hint of Turkish delight flavour to the beer. This Imperial Stout has a rich, dark appearance with strong chocolate and deep cherry notes which lead to a lighter, bitter finish.

Pilsnertest (203) - SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2017
Bottle at home. 2013 vintage. So. I liked this beer very much as new. Remembering it as thick and full of flavours in harmony. As approximately four years old the flavours are struggling a bit with each other. It's a bit boozy and dry. Old coffee, liquorice and prunes with a disturbing papery and dry aftertaste. So the rating is with the new one in mind. I have one more which will be opened somewhere around 2023 where I believe we have another beer that very much could be a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Buonissima Imperial in stile americano. Aroma intenso di liquirizia e tostatura. Al palato dolce, corposa e avvolgente, cioccolato e caramello. Carbonazione bassa.

thellgren (930) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 11, 2017
0.5 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Appearance is black/ruby. Taste is complicated: sweetish but also dry, not really bitter, but dry as lambic. Well, no roasted barley here. I expected even more sweetness since this style was the favorite of Russian royal court.

Nische (2098) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2017
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours very dark brown with a beige head. Roasted aroma with dried fruit, liquorice, raisins and caramel. Taste is perfectly balanced between dried fruit and raisins on one side and salty caramel, liquorice and roast on the other. Beautiful beer.

19Oracolo78 (158) - ITALY - MAR 5, 2017
Birra dal colore mogano. Schiuma color beige fine e persistente. Al palato ben strutturata con note di malto torrefatto, cioccolato amaro, caffŤ. Finale lievemente amaro. Una birra abbastanza alcolica dove líalcol non si sente per niente. Una birra che non scende molto facilmente per la sua struttura ma rimane comunque molto piacevole.

maar (28) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2017
500 ml bottle. Aroma is full of coffee, chocolate, and sweet malts. Taste is coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, liquorice, and caramel. Itís not too heavy, not too thin, it sits pretty damn good where itís at. Itís smooth and round and the mouthfeel is medium, and and just a bit sticky. Really enjoying this one.
