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.

Poured from a bomber, best before 2015.

Thick and black as night into the glass. Head is only shades lighter than the body itself. 1-2 fingers max worth of foam. Aroma is mostly rich espresso coffee. Flavor is very strong coffee, velvety with mild bitterness. I honestly find that the flavor is not very expansive. Feel isn't right up there for an Imperial stout.

Honestly disappointed by this one. Expected more given the brewer but it falls short of what it could be.

A- Thick and viscous. Deep bark color with a dark caramel head that doesn't hang around too long before settling into a soft ring. Impressive looking to say the least.

S- Coffee leads the way. Roasted malts and nuts, sweet cookies, and a hint of chocolate.

T- Abundance of sweet notes that weren't apparent with the nose. Borders on cloying, but slides back just before going over the edge. The biscotti cookie really comes through and complements the coffee character well. Warms up nicely with mocha, whipped cream, and slight charred caramel flavors.

M- Full bodied no doubt. Creamy, smooth, and alcohol with a kick.

O- a terrific breakfast or desert beer. Would be fantastically paired with a biscotti cookie or cream donut. Not sure that I would have again on its own, but would be sought out on the right pairing occasion.

$15.99 for 22 oz bomber.
