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.

Main smell is woody with a bit of coffee roast. Later it opens up a bit to include a sweet chocolate liquor. Surprisingly thin compared to what I was expecting from a big Imperial Stout. First taste is that woody note from the aroma, a little green. Flavors that come after are more typical of an imperial stout, ending with a sort of char and chocolate aftertaste, though the midpalate on the way there is curiously empty and clean. If there is supposed to be any of the namesake biscotti flavour in this, I'm not getting any of it at all. No baked goods or bready toasty anything at all, no almond anything. I had heard this was a real standout stout so this is very surprising and disappointing. If I had never heard anything about it at all I would say it is an OK imperial with a bit of odd green wood flavor.
