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.

calumhill (5) - Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014 does not count
Pours black with a small tan head. Some light lacing that disappears with time. Aroma of vanilla, coffee and run raison. Thick and syrupy mouthfeel with little carbonation. Taste of chocolate, vanilla and chocolate. Overall a great beer that leaves you warm and is perfect for after dinner.

SlackerMads (1623) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle shared with a Polish person. Pitch black with a large dark brown head. Cocoa, chocolate, hazelnut, a touch of fresh coffee grounds, charcoal, light dark dried fruits. Medium/full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Medium sweet and bitter. Doesn’t work THAT well for me, feels a bit thin and sweet.

Osprey87 (1732) - WALES - FEB 8, 2014
Big bottle BB 2015. Nice thick pour into a snifter. Black, small brown head endures. Smell - sharp metallic coffee, chocolate syrup. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste - chocolate syrup, a little coffee, sweet molasses, soy. OK. This series is a bit molasses-heavy for me.

En öl för den som älskar mörk choklad. Doftar djup choklad. Smakar choklad och en vanilj ton fångar upp en. Skum litet och nogat ton. Riktigt god efterrätts öl.

Refrigerated brown bomber poured into a snifter. Pours black with medium light brown head. Aroma is nice coffee, thick/medium body, medium carbonation, and thick small bubble lacing. Taste is roasted malt, nice coffee, and some bitter hops in the finish. Very good imperial porter.

Dogbones (116) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Bomber to snifter. Pours a deep black with a cream head. Smells malty and sweet. Taste follows smell directly. Oats, cookie, sweet, malty with little to no alcohol noticeable. Solid brew for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 31, 2014
Tap at CBC Clerkenwell, Pours brown, deep dark brown almost black, off cream thin head. Nose of biscuits, some fruits, and chocolate. Chocolate cake on the palate, big dark fruits, cherry, prunes, figs and dates, lovely beer, quite simple but not in a bad way.
