COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fulton War and Peace is a Russian Imperial Stout conditioned with whole bean Peace Coffee in the fermentation tank. Its 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 Tolstoys masterpiece, it may take some time to finish and require some thought along the way. But by the end, we think youll find yourself better for the effort.

ChainGangGuy (4826) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Appearance: Gloopy! Heavy! Glugs out a jet black body with a thin, beige head that was a little hard to scare up being a few centimeters. Smell: W+P is loaded with richly roasty, coffee aromas, backed by dark chocolate, molasses and a bit of sweet caramel with lighter touches of dark fruit, alcohol and ground spice. Taste: Deeply roasty with bright coffee flavors, bitterish dark chocolate and sulphured molasses. Some dark fruitiness present, a little spicy anise. Underlying bitterness beneath the dense maltiness. Touch of alcohol. Drying, bitterish, chocolaty finish. Mouthfeel: Full-bodied. Medium-light carbonation. Damnably chewy mouthfeel. Overall: From the get-go, this one looked like it was right up my alley and it was.

JDBaker11058 (1999) - Maryland, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Appearance: viscous, oily, inky black with a short, creamy, tight-bubbled dark brown head that was almost purple. Aroma: beautiful aroma, full of finely ground espresso (reminded me of Caf Bustelo), bitter dark chocolate, a hint of molasses, with some dark fruit, black bread, and licorice. Taste: caf mocha, with earthy undertones; theres a lot of cold-pressed coffee here, with good dark chocolate and maybe some dark fruit. Finish: lingering roasty character and coffee flavors, but thankfully without the acidity that can be so common in the style; alcohol seemed well hidden, but I was left with a bit of a fuzzy tongue. Notes: Enjoyable. Palate seemed fulsome and rich (with some almost granular notes) to me, and it was coffee forward without that bright acidity I hate in coffee infused stouts. Weird mouthfeel after it was all said and done was the only down note for me. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

slowrunner77 (10491) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 9, 2015
wow - it was nice but didnt expect to see 98th percentile. the coffee is good, if a touch green, and the stout is good...lots of roast and hops and hints of chocolate. The feel is a little small for an irs at nearly 10%, but its solid otherwise.

bomber from co-worker Jeff...nose is coffee and maybe some malt...taste is the same with a tobacco and leather taste mixed in...i would like some kind of dark berry taste...beer would be a lot better with it...decent but needs improving...(#465)

10oz pour at brewery. Minneapolis. Pours black with generous tan head. Good retention. Aroma is heavy on dark choclate, coffee, a hint of vanilla. Alcohol. Taste is mildly bitter upfront and carries throughout. Subtle Sweetness comes in mid way though. Body is full. Rich, thick texture. Long finish.

March 6, 2015 - on tap at Busters. Dark brown pour with limited head that didnt last. Aroma was chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Taste was consistent with aroma. Finish was dry and heavy on the alcohol, and lingered for a while in the aftertaste.

On tap at the brewery. Pours near black with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of rich coffee backed by roasted malts and dark grains. Flavor is similarly dominated by coffee with some dark grains and roasted malts underlying.
