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.

4.25/5  rDev -3%

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.

4.21/5  rDev -3.9%

Appearance: At 11.5% one wouldn't expect to much of a head and this does not surprise on that front; the liquid itself is pitch black and the viscosity leaves some legs

Smell: As the name would suggest, it smells like a biscotti dipped into a cup of black coffee: cookie dough, almond and a hint of chocolate

Taste: Rather sweet from the outset, with cookie dough, sweetened chocolate, vanilla and almond, with coffee flavors building in the middle; much the same, after the swallow

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with low carbonation

Overall: I wonder how much the name of the beer influences the taste I perceive, but this is an interesting beer, albeit the sweetness makes it something I would not want to drink frequently
