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.

4.49/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Black. Creamy brown head. No lacing that I can see.

Smell: Rich and delicious. Biscotti, I suppose. Coffee and chocolate laden. So much it's ridiculous. I don't get the alcohol one bit.

Taste/feel: To be honest, reminds me quite a lot of their Imperial Doughnut Break, as it has that same sort of doughiness (though not quite to the same extent), but with more and better flavor. Great creamy feel with a mild/moderate mouthfeel. Quite sweet, but also a deep roasted flavor with some bitterness on the finish. A lot of alcohol warmth here that dries the mouth right up. The alcohol can't be tasted at all, but certainly felt.

Incredibly good beer. $18 for a 22oz bottle is definitely a pretty hefty price, but it's also one hell of a hefty brew. A fantastic biscotti/dough/coffee/sweet nose that tastes almost just as good. A big beer that's well worth trying. One of the best beers I've ever had, for sure. A bit on the sweeter side, but that's to be expected from this beer, I think... but that's just a nitpick. BUY THIS BEER.

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

Appearance - dark brown, nearly jet black beer with mocha colored head

Smell - black chocolate, black licorice, almonds, coffee

Taste - chocolate, dark chocolate, almonds, coffee, slight black licorice, vanilla, fudge, expresso

Mouthfeel - heavier side of medium bodied, low carbonation, balanced flavors, flavors linger, ABV is imperceptible

Overall - good stout that comes in a bit below the hype. Worth a try but at the price point a re-visit is doubtful

Price Point - $13.99/22 oz bottle
