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: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

650ml bottle bought online from CraftBeerCo.. My 1000th beer review so i thought it better be something special

Poured pitch black with no hint of colour even when held up to the light. Burnt brown head poured fairly thick with very small bubbles and a meringue like topping... a good one finger of foam remained throughout.. some thick lacing lines...

Aroma - Lots of roasted sweet chocolate malts backed with caramel and strong coffee, toasted nuts - hazlenuts mainly, quite earthy, some faint citrus notes, light liquorice, lots of brown sugar, honey notes, some light smokiness...

Taste - Tons of dark and milk chocolate up front followed by strong black coffee notes, roasted malts, cocoa powder, vanilla, some light smoke just coming through, dark fruits (raisins and currents), fudge, nut brittle, treacle / molasses, alcohol is not noticeable..

Feel - Smooth and velvety with just a little sharpness underneath... full bodied... pretty drinkable for an 11% brew although becomes quite sweet towards the end...

Overall - A superb example of an imperial stout from Evil Twin although a 650ml bottle would be way too much as the sweetness becomes a little much (i shared this one with my wife) ... definitely recommended though...
