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.

22oz bomber poured into a snifter.

The beer pours a insanely deep jet black color, it's like staring into the abyss. There is a tiny mocha head, tightly packed bubbles, but it recedes quickly leaving behind a modest layer of film and only the most minimal of lacing. The aroma is superb, vanilla, chocolate, roasted coffee, dark pitted fruit and a really interesting nuttiness, almost like a sweeter almond or hazelnut. The flavors are right on queue with the nose, big chocolate profile, almonds, hazelnuts, borderline nutella flavor, great pitted fruit with sweet vanilla and a great backing of roasted coffee and dark malts. They are so perfectly balanced, artfully integrated and executed, each flavor has a chance to shine but also enhances the other aspects. The body is so silky and smooth, rich and creamy that is perfectly drinkable and really helps intensify the rich flavors.

Verdict: Fantastic stout from Evil Twin and by far the best beer I've had from him to date. The flavors are wonderfully balanced and massive enjoyable and the body takes this beer to a new level. The perfect desert beer.
