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 from fridge temp to snifter. Pours jet black with almost no carbonation.

Smell - wow. Can't stop smelling it. Huge coffee and vanilla. Also getting a good amount of roasted malts and chocolate. Quite amazing.

Taste - Very smooth at first with a nice mellow coffee flavor. A bit of a bitter bite in the aftertaste, but the chocolate, coffee, and vanilla mix is so good! Love it. Feel is very nice - rich and creamy. Overall, this is a splendid offering. I will seek more!

This beer had, really, not much of a smell to mention.
The taste of the beer got worse as I drank it; I found myself dropping the taste rating in my head with each sip.
The mouthfeel was above average- there was some real substance, I'm just not sure what it was.
Overall, this isn't a bad brew. I just don't understand why it's received by others as "world-class". I love my stouts, just not this one. To each his own.
