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.

arminjewell (9457) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2010
Pours deep black/brown with huge dark tan head. If you want a coffee stout, this is it. With whole coffee beans in the cask, the beer is literally coffee, with some beer flavor. Aroma is big chocolate and darkly roasted coffee. Taste is like drinking a huge dark roast coffee, with some chocolate, toffee, and a huge bitter finish from the coffee. Easily the best coffee stout Ive ever had.

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.

TheAlum (7106) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2013
750 ml bottle shared at Kentucky Brunch Release (Decorah, IA). Pours a deep dark opaque blackish hue, a frothy tannish head dies to a frothy film, laces ok. Aromas are stark coffee, toast, roast. Some mellow dark cocoa, toffee, and roast. Some vanilla, gentle oak, the spirit doesnt show up much. Initial is thicker but not full, good rich coffee, roast and toast. Touches of toffee, toast, espresso. Middle is big coffee, java, some oak. Really nice rich coffee presence, cocoa and dark cocoa is mellow. Backend is roasty, big coffee, mellow oak. A faint waft of spirit. Pretty inviting for coffee lovers, touch of spice and heat as we finish up. Cocoa, some thickness, vanilla and a touch tannic. Cocoa, whiskey, rich espresso finish. A really well put together beer. Mellow oak, could use a touch more barrel element but the coffee is rich and the experience is synergenic. Tasty.
