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: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A-Pours a syrupy, pitch black color with a dark cinnamon colored, creamy head with fair retention. Head purs at a one finger width and fades slowly to a half finger. Coats the entire glass as I sip and leaves a nice latticework of residual foam.

S-Sweet, fresh baked bread, sweet pastries, syrup and pancakes, bold coffee, slightly boozy, oatmeal raisin cookies.

T-Sweet, sugared bread is overpowering at the front but it fades nicely into a nutty, bold/bitter coffee flavor at the back of the palate. Finishes with a nice balance between the sweetness and bitter coffee

MF-Syrupy as hell. By far the thickest beer I've ever had. Body is thick and chewy, it seems to have the consistency of motor oil. I bought a bomber for my self tonight and there is no way I can drink all 25oz.

O-This is not for the faint of heart. Very, very sweet. Thick as hell. A pretty good imperial, but I think it is just too sweet. Looks better than most imperial's I've seen, though.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a bomber into a teku glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep, deep brown - near black and leaves a nice 2-fingered brown head. This is a good looking imperial stout.

Smell: Strong coffee, along with some solid vanilla as well as chocolate. The coffee aroma definitely is in the front though.

Taste: The taste begins the smell: strong, strong coffee along with some malts, chocolate, caramel and vanilla. Finishes with just a touch of alcohol which I don't mind at all.

Mouth-feel: Fairly creamy and medium to heavy bodied. Low level of carbonation. This one is surprisingly smooth though.

Overall: A very interesting beer. The coffee flavor, while pleasant, drowns out a lot of the other flavors, but some chocolate, malts, and vanilla manage to get through. Definitely a solid coffee-dominant imperial stout. It looks amazing and the mouth-feel is great. If you're into coffee dominant stouts, this one is a must try.
