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.

No access to this beer on this side of the pond, so cheers to claaark13 for sending one over.

From a bomber into a snifter
Imperial coffee stout

APPEARANCE: Started to foam up the neck upon opening, but slowly settled. Pours out thick black and yields a 1+ finger, looser, fizzy, mocha colored head with lousy retention. Fizzes down to a ring only. Black body with higher levels of carbonation evident. Looks mostly flat by the end with no real lacing or ring. Good color again, but lousy head.

SMELL: Roasted grain, coffee, vanilla cream and chocolate on the nose. Sweet cream and milk notes as well. Pretty nice really.

TASTE: Roasted coffee beans and sweet milky cream up front. Vanilla and caramel sweetness through the middle into the swallow as well. Bold finish of sweet cream, vanilla, milk chocolate, caramel, with some roasted grains and bitter coffee for sure. Very flavorful and enjoyable.

PALATE: Medium-full body with medium levels of carbonation. Creamy on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes slightly mouth coating. Enough weight and creamy as well. Good.

OVERALL: Was a little worried when it started to foam upon opening, but this one turned out solid. Wasn't as impressed with it as I was with Even More Jesus, but certainly one I would have again if offered. Lots of sweet milky and caramel flavors here, working well with the roasted and bitter coffee flavors. Thanks again Claaark13. Recommended.
