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.

4.8/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours like motor oil with a dark, dark brown head that forms slowly as the carbonation crawls up the glass. Pretty crazy to watch.

S: Some heavy roasted malt with some chocolate covered raisin, sugar cookie, espresso, molasses and straight dark chocolate. A bit of a bourbon note to it as well.

T: This stuff is really bomb. Opens with a rich mix of roasted malt and molasses with a heavy coffee hard candy undertone. Then moves through some flavors of chocolate cake, chocolate covered black cherry and vanilla. Finish brings some mocha and milk chocolate. Sweet and chewy throughout. The mouthfeel is velvety and mouth-coating, leaving just a trace of warmness. An awesome dessert beer and one of the better stouts I've ever had.

22 ounce bottle - $15.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Chugs out an onyx black body with a thickish, slowly receding, dark tan-hued head.

Smell: IB is marked by its unmistakable almond-scented nose that literally jumps out of the glass, followed fast by robust, just-roasted coffee, melty sweet chocolate, subtle vanilla beans, steeped prunes, and a splash of clean alcohol.

Taste: A double-chocolate almond cookie dunked in rich morning-fresh coffee generously dosed with sweetened vanilla-flavored almond milk and even a drip of Amaretto. A dark fruitiness shortly creeps in, as does a (very) little roasty bitterness, maybe a snippet of restrained leafy, tobacco-laced hops. The various flavors, some nutty, and the dessert-like sweetness just roll back and forth over the tongue, progressing beyond the smooth, slightly warming, slightly drying finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Silky mouthfeel.

Overall: Listen, if you can't get excited about this beer, you don't deserve coffee, vanilla beans OR almonds.
