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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22oz bottle poured into a Brooklyn snifter. Been looking for this for a while, glad to grab some before it left the shelves this time around.

A - Pours an opaque, oily black in color...looks thick and viscous. A short cap of dense cappuccino cap of foam lingers for a minute or so and falls to a loose collar and skim coat on the surface.

S - Dark roasted coffee up front, hints of light caramel and brown sugar. Licorice and some char/ash. A touch of creaminess, some maple and maybe even a bit of chili pepper on the fringes.

T - Not at all what I was expecting...rather sweet up front. Sugar, brown sugar, caramel, molasses, vanilla, sweet cream, maple...very complex sugar profile. Backed up by coffee, burnt toast, charcoal, alcohol. Rather interesting interpretation of the style that is carried out quite well.

M - Medium bodied...not quite as the appearance initially indicated. Carbonation is on the light side, just creating a tingle and some life on the tongue and buoying the body just a bit. Overall sweet and leaves a persistant coating of sugar on the lips with each sip.

O - Overall, a bit of a different take on the imperial stout style. Has the requisite raostiness and coffee base, but the dominant flavors are of the sweet variety and almost in a candy-like way. A light syrupy-ness in feel that further impresses the candy aspects of the beer. Different but well done.
