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.

Une belle grosse bouteille. Rien à redire de ce superbe Imperial Stout au café avec sa texture soyeuse, ses saveurs de chocolat au café légèrement torréfié et à cette divine vanille. Franchement décadent, rien d’agressant se boit tout seul (ou à deux...)

Draft. A black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of dark chocolate, roasted malt, alcohol, and soy sauce. The flavor is sweet with notes of chocolate sauce, alcohol, roasted malt, cocoa beans, and sirup, leading to a dry, roasted, and alcoholic finish.

Ragnampiza (589) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAY 9, 2014
660 ml bottle from Portale Birra, served in a snifter glass. Pitch black, thick like used motor oil, with absolutely no light passing through, and a small, frothy, beige head, which didn’t last very long, leaving a tiny ring of foam. Rich aroma, notes of freshly roasted coffee beans, bitter dark chocolate, vanilla, toasted malts, perhaps a hint of smoked meat and soy sauce as well. Clearly "smaller" than the pour indicated, but still pretty full flavoured. Sweetened coffee, milk chocolate, roasted malts, brown sugar, way less boozy than what I was expecting, in fact, the alchool is ridiculously well hidden. For the actual ABV, it’s dangerously drinkable. Slightly bitter aftertaste, quite fruity (esp. darker berries type of fruits.) Average carbonation, medium to full body, oily texture. I had VERY high expectations for this one, and I’m not exactly blown off. Probably my fault, because this is certainly a damn good imperial porter.

Merci à kbudd19 et à dresden pour les bouteilles. Une belle robe onctueuse et noire. Un col largement crémeux et solide. La dentelle n’est pas très élaborée mais belle. Au nez, des parfums décadents de lait au chocolat frappé, de vanille, de noisettes en pâte sucrée et de biscuits faits maison. En bouche, ce sont des saveurs de café qui se joignent à la fête orchestrée par le chocolat aux noisettes et les pralines vanillées. 11.5% d’alcool? Je me demande encore où il peut bien se trouver. Au palais, un corps souple qui montre un pétillement modéré et une texture soyeuse. En finale, j’aime comment la douceur de ses éléments ne devient pas écœurante pour mes papilles : la force de cette bière étiquetée comme un impérial stout réside dans sa capacité à être extrêmement facile à boire et superbement savoureuse. Meilleure avant 2015. De catégorie mondiale. Tout simplement délicieuse.

Fad: Ovenpå CBC var dette en fornøjelse at finde på fad på Søernes. Kulsort øl med et lille mokkabrunt skumhoved. Duft af kaffe og en tand chokolade. Virkelig lækker øl.

rondphoto (2553) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAY 3, 2014
on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of malt and chocolate, very appealing. Totally opaque black/brown with a tan head that drops to a thin cover, a sheet of lace. Taste is deep roasted malt that turns over, making way for silky milk chocolate to push right through the palate to a creamy lightly bittered, lightly warmed finish. A terrific concoction, distressingly easy to drink. High recommendations.
