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.

Draft at Closed for Business, Charleston, SC. Usually never rate anything this high but wow, this brew is special. A dark mahogany body with nice caramel lacing. Smells of bread, sugar, chocolate, dark fruits and roasted malts compliment a near perfect silk mouthfeel. The flavor is very unique, morning coffee, Italian sweet cream, figs, molasses, and well..biscotti. You have to try it, no excuses.

650 ml. Ebon with an eighth inch of brown sugary foam. Nose is espresso, raw peanut, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is vanilla, biscuit, dry cocoa, peanut and toasted oak. Medium-heavy body is smooth with medium carbonation. Small note of the abv and a good balance.

Bomber shared with Zach and Brandon, pours a rich dark deep black color with a beautiful java head. Nose is dark malt, dark fruit and heavy mocha. Taste is rich mocha as well, with some alcohol as well, and a nice balanced sweetness. Finish is sweet with a rich smooth, velvety vanilla chocolate finish. Quaff Score 9 / 10

zgaier (1574) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Pours pitch black with a brown head and strong aroma of coffee, liquorice, and roasted malt. Taste is delicious, tons of roasted coffee, with vanilla, roasted malt, chocolate, and alcohol leading to a sweet, burnt finish. Very flavorful, great strong brew

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2014
Fra fad, Søernes Ølbar. Sort og fed som fløde. Kaffefarvet skum med kort levetid. Dufter ristet, tykt og sødt af chokolade, kaffe og nougat. Noter af røde bær. Fyldig men også flad. Lav drikbarhed. Har fået mange andre og bedre impy stouts fra Evil Twin.

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...)

Ungstrup (30010) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2014
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 (680) - 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.
