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.

22 oz bottle poured into a Toppling Goliath Snifter

A- Very attractive Imperial Stout. Nice one finger dark brown frothy head, dissipates slowly, really nice lacing sticks to the glass. Color is pitch black, no light is getting through this baby.
S- BIG coffee upfront, some brown sugar comes out, some vanilla as well, the coffee is just awesome, takes over everything. Slight chocolaty aroma as well.
T- Wow so rich, big roast upfront, espresso coffee, dark chocolate, bitter sweetness, vanilla, everything i could ask for in a non barrel aged Imperial Stout, very easy to drink the alcohol is no where to be seen.
M- Big mouthfeel, thick as it goes down, sticky on the palate
O- Really impressed with this beer, allot of taste in this one, love the rich vanilla coffee taste, just lingers in your mouth after every sip. Hard to stop drinking it. Usually i would share a bottle of this with a friend, but right now I'm very glad I'm having this solo.

S: Very sweet, mocha. Some roast, rich maltiness. Lots of milk chocolate.

L: Very thick, black, motor oil consistency. Dark tan head that dissipates quickly. Ring of foam.

T: Sweet, mocha like flavors up front with a prominent maltiness. Low bitterness with loads of freshly roasted coffee with milk chocolate notes. Bold, roasty coffee into the finish. Finishes quite sweet.

M: Big, full bodied. Slick mouthfeel. Medium low carbonation.

Great, really enjoyed the coffee in this. Quite sweet, going solo on a bottle was a little much.

22 oz. bottle served in a . Thanks to bentenison for the brew.

A: Pours a dark black color with a dark tan head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin film with a slightly thicker collar. Sheets of lace.

S: There's a whole ton going on. Espresso sweetness, almost like a warm chocolate milk. Heavy doughy cookie, roasted malts and big baker's chocolate. Very faint green paper as it warms, but overall it doesn't detract too much from the smell. Very nice.

T: Warming alcohol on the backend, but it's not over or noticeable which is nice. Chocolate covered espresso beans with a roasted malt and soft cookie sweetness. The finish has some bitter roast and some

M: Silky and oily. Medium to heavy bodied with a medium low carbonation. Really nice.

O: Great mouthfeel with a wonderful blend of flavors. Very nice overall and would definitely have again.
