Notes/Commercial Description:
The Roman Empire had a certain "je ne sais quoi" - festive food culture, extravagant architecture, and spectacular live entertainment. Some might argue the Emperors were brutal, mad, and hungry for power, and the people vain when taking baths and working out all day. Listen - that's still all part of the secret Imperial ingredient - keep it cool, clean, confident, arrogant, and flamboyant. Forza Imperiale.

Another share with rudzud.

Forced pour yields a nice thick creamy dense choc milk colored 1/2 fingered head, fades semi slowly with nice lacing, pretty much pitch black color.

Nose is pretty nice, plenty of dark malts and candy like, nice nutty toffee biscuit like cookie, I guess a biscotti, light caramel, faint candy chocolate, some light minerals and dark roasty malts, light fluffy nougat, and faint grassy earthy hops. There's also a nice earthy coffee bean that doesn't get too bitter or acrid, the more I nose the more fresh roasted espresso I get.

Taste starts syrupy, like coffee syrup, light toffee and some nice butterscotch, tons of caramel, like caramel candies, creamed caramel, etc. Coffee is nice, fresh earthy nutty espresso, light bitter cookie like maybe biscotti, and there is a nice nutty quality but not the almond like character I almost expected for "biscotti". creamy smooth nice nutty flavor, fair sweetness and just a touch of booze. Again the minerals are there with light toasted character. Candy like flavors are nice too, and faint grassy hops round off the flavor. Finish is semi bitter, dry, some bitter roast and fresh coffee lingering, plenty of fresh coffee and more candy toffee caramel nutty flavors lingering.

Mouth is fuller bodied, smooth and a bit on the rich side, decent carb, faint warming booze.

Overall quite nice, very tasty. Smooth, rich, quite tasty, nice aroma, well done Imperial stout I would come back to plenty of times. I can see the hype for this one. Booze is hidden pretty well too, nice coffee, caramel, cookie and candy flavors without getting too sweet or undrinkable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

22oz into a tulip. Pours a deep viscous black w/ a reddish brown head. Beautiful.

Aroma is dark roasted malt, espresso, bitter chocolate. Rich, earthy, inviting.

Taste is big and robust; strong coffee, chocolate. Some caramel, vanilla and molasses.

Mouthfeel is thick and coating, slick. Not syrupy. Nice dry finish.

Overall an outstanding imperial stout, hits on all cylijnders.
