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 into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. Label says best before 2015.

A- Pours a jet black color with a 1/4 inch brown head that retains a bit before falling to a thick ring around the edge of the surface and a full sheet of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves jagged streaks behind on the glass.

S- Boozy aroma of chocolate, caramel, vanilla and burnt cookie. Also some molasses and oatmeal amidst the very dark roast.

T- Initial sweet flavor of milk chocolate, caramel and a bit of coffee. The roastiness comes through more on the second sip displaying more depth and bringing cookie dough to the table. Very smooth for the ABV even after multiple sips are taken. Char aftertaste with more molasses notes and a hint of raisin. The heat starts to come through as it warms but it only adds to the complexity as it mimics tastes of bourbon.

M- Decadently creamy and silky with a thick, borderline chewy, body and medium-low carbonation.

O- I had this on tap and it was not nearly as smooth and enjoyable as it is in the bottle. The sweetness is also a lot more pronounced which I like. Overall, an excellent beer. I'm starting to think Evil Twin may actually have the chops to compete with his brother.

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

Appearance: Ok foam and lacing for a stout. Color is ink black...superb.

Smell: Hits all the right notes for a stout: dark fruit, coffee, toffee, and chocolate. Extremely boozy.

Taste/Mouthfeel: See smell. Quite bitter also. Very clean for the level of alcohol in this. Maybe a bit too smooth.

Overall: This stuff can get you drunk quick.

A big thanks to Bill for this one. 22oz. bomber into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. Shared with schen9303.

Dense pour yields an opaque, pitch black brew with a slight dark mocha head that dissipates quickly. Lacing is patchy and stringy with decent stick and thick, oily legs. Solid.

Nose is booze, lactose, coffee, chocolate, and fudge. Moderately aromatic and unmistakably decadent. Nice.

Opens sweet milk chocolate, lactose and roasted malt. Some sweet espresso and coffee beans in the middle with fudge brownie, more chocolate, and some dark fruit at the end. Finishes chocolate, mocha, and sweet roast with the same aftertaste. A rich, luxurious, over-the-top experience for sure. Real nice.

Full bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Silky smooth and rich in the mouth and goes down warm and thick. Messy finish with a sticky, lingering aftertaste. Fits perfectly.

I've heard a lot about this beer and the praise is well deserved beer. This is truly one of the ultimate desert beers. Complex, thick, rich, and very decadent. This one's a sipper for sure and one that'll slowly reveal itself throughout the experience. Definitely worth trying.
