Availability: Rotating

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

Expensive bottle, $18.

Appearance. Pours thick and black with a finger of thick espresso foam head.

Smell. Big chocolate, vanilla and cake with some roasty coffee, molasses and chocolate liquer.

Taste. Huge espresso with dark chocolate and some honey, vanilla, roasted nuts and a drop of molasses. Sweet but delicious.

Mouthfeel. Thick and a bit syrupy, low carbonation. Some warmth, but nothing off-putting.

Overall. A very tasty stout and makes a great desert.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Awesome bomber from dope (thanks man!) split with my brother, with my portion poured into a Deschutes tulip.

A: Dense, opaque black with thin brown head and decent lacing & alcohol legs.

S: Sweet alcohol; vanilla and almond really dominate, with some coffee and caramel mixed in for good measure. Decent roasted malt presence with plenty of sugary sweetness.

T: Sweeter here, as well; vanilla and caramel upfront. Less alcohol is tasted here than smelled. Decent amount of chocolate and coffee as well.

MF: Medium-to-full body, viscous and creamy. Carbonation was pretty low on this thing but didn't distract at all (though I would have preferred a little more to cut through the sweetness).

O: Really good, and way too easy to drink for how big it is (and even how much felt alcohol there is). Would have preferred a touch more coffee as well, to balance the sweetness, but my complaints are minor.

Bottle courtesy of brewerb in a box that arrived today. Thanks Brian!

This one pours a full bodied dark chocolate brown in clor with a slight khaki lacing around my glass. The nose is full on candy bar. Chocolate, chocolate everywhere. I don't get much roast, just pure milk chocolate. The flavors too, almost pure chocolate with just a touch of roast. Its truffle like. It's sweet but not cloying. It is incredibly smooth, which is definitely where this beer shines. The body is perfect, perfect. Tis is a great dessert but but not overly complex. I can see why everyone likes it but its a little sweet.
