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.

500mL bottle at home. Pours thick and black with lacy tan head. Scents of dried fruits, roasted malts and coffee and slightly boozy. Taste is of dried fruits with caramel and chocolate notes with a bitter, but smooth and floral finish. Overall a very good stout, good body and very well balanced.

Nice aromal beer: chocolate with coffee. Taste is round, full but soft. Aftertaste is lasting. Abv gives a warm stomach-feeling. A gratis stout, score would have been higher if I wasnít an IPA type.

Look: clear dark brown, semi-transparent. Aroma: sweet, roasted, dark bread with molasses. Taste: strong to moderate sweetness balanced, light bitterness. Flavour: molasses, charcoal, rye bread, sweet Robusta. Balanced on the sweet side and not too complex however very pleasant and warming. Good.

larsga (7442) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2016
Medium beige head. Opaque black body. Roasty chocolatey earthy aroma with milky burnt notes. Sweetish roasty alcoholic taste with chocolatey spicy notes. Full-bodied. Mild, slightly hot mouthfeel. Dryish roasty menthol aftertaste with licorice, toffee, and resin notes. Interesting, drinkable, and very nice, but a little bit too alcoholic. (0.5l bottle, from SuperBrugsen Fredericia.)

nihtila (3364) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 3, 2016
Bottle at home, I think approx two years old. Pours almost black, dark brown head. Nose is very rich and intense, chocolate, roast, liquorice, dried fruits, light cherry - fantastic aroma. Taste is oily and rich, liquorice, roast, chocolate, plenty of warming booze, dries fruits. Not as fantastic as nose but excellent brew. Straightforward in a good way, as many IS these days have loads of extra stuff, barrels etc. I wonder if the booziness would round with longer aging.
