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.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Warto potrzymać kilka lat. Tu - 2013. Pięknie wychodzi czekolada i ciemne owoce, znikają znane ze świeżego piwa paloność i alko. Bardzo dobre piwo.

lesifflebiere (1817) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2016
L’infusion est odorante, des cerises noires, du gâteau aux fruits, du chocolat noir. Couleur rouge très foncé, étonnamment. Une bouche moelleuse, des saveurs directes, un peu décapantes même (on ressent beaucoup les houblons). Le fruité est dominant, avec un peu des saveurs classiques chocolat-café-vanille en arrière-plan. Un impy stout assez original par rapport à ce qui se fait de nos jours ; à la base, c’est une très solide concoction.
