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.

22oz bottle into snifter. “Best before 2015” on label. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a very dark brown, near black, with a large, fuzzy, dense, and foamy dark brownish-copper head. The head took its time fading into a thin, bubbly collar.
S: Roasty and toasty nose with scents of deep roasted malts, iced-coffee, and a touch of bitter dark chocolate. There’s a decent amount of vanilla in there too as the beer warms, and maybe some caramel.
T: Rich and semi-sweet notes of chocolate-caramel brownie up front, followed by mild notes of coffee, a touch of vanilla, and a good dose of roast in the finish. The aftertaste is full of linger flavors of toasted malt, nutty coffee, and a hint of sweet brown sugar. I get a hint or two of toasted coconut as the beer reaches room temp.
M: Very thick body, viscous and slick, with lower than expected carbonation that creates a thick yet flat moutfeel. Could be chewier with a bit of carb, but the extra thick body makes this a pleasure to sip.
O: A very solid imperial stout. Great flavors, not overpowering, boozing, or cloying, with a nice heavy body. Carbonation could have been a touch chewier, but it really doesn’t hurt the drinkability in the end.
