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 (4881) - 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.
