Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BlackBelt5112203 on 04-12-2012

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.

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.

Sexy black. Smells like dessert. Tastes like chocolate and expresso, with a kick. Great mouthfeel. Might be my new favorite non-barrel aged stout. Now I need to find the BA variety.

With a voluminous, dark tan head and a sleek black body, this one looks as good as they get.

Has a soothing, rich milk chocolate, plum, ripened dark grape, brown bread and spice aroma.

Tastes of chocolate cake and subtle dark fruits. A little cherry syrup stickiness lingers on the lips. Exceptionally smooth until the very end when an earthy bitterness is noticed.

Heavy in body but thins as it warms. A slight alcohol heat exists.

Biscotti Break is everything an Imperial Stout should be.
