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.

Aroma is dark chocolate, dark malts, earthy notes and a hint of fruit. The flavor is dark fruit, earthy malts, chocolate/dark chocolate, a hint of citrus, coffee and a big acidic finish. The alcohol was relatively hidden, this was very good.

Sarlacc83 (766) - Oregon, USA - JAN 14, 2014
On tap. From notes. A: Chalky black, thick mocha heads, and leggy. N: Malted milk, chocolate, and cocoa. Vanilla, caramel, touch of coffee. T: So much chocolate here and some evening elements, but this is very sweet, albeit not cloying. M: Thick, treacly, sticky. O: Really good I’d had this before, but it wasn’t nearly as enjoyable. Would buy a bottle.

NeoHippie2 (1015) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Black pour with a light tan head. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. Flavor is similar, really nice balance between them too. Sweet, but not too sweet, and delicious. Abv is completely hidden as well. Very tasty.

Aarond (150) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2014

nakedwhendrunk (2184) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Rcvd in a trade, best before 2015; into a tulip, appearance is a pitch black colored body with a tan slim half finger of a head that ends up concaving into the body after a good minute; the smell has strong bourbon bourbon notes up front, light vanilla, dark chocolate, roasted coffee beans; the taste is sweet through the bourbon notes, dark chocolate and then gets slightly balanced with the roasted coffee bean flavoring; coffee beans make a stronger presence in the aftertaste than the bourbon does; dry roasty finish; not that easy on the palate - this bad boy is more a sipper; carbonation is actually fairly smooth and is pretty good for the style and for me; overall I say this is a pretty good Double Stout that I would have again, not sure if I like this as much as everybody else, but I will say its solid

Shared bomber, pint glasses. Opaque, brown/black. Big, fine chocolate-colored head; I enjoyed just looking at this beer. Aroma: coffee, chocolate, malt. Taste: coffee, milk chocolate, malt. Palate: creamy smooth, luscious. Great beer I enjoyed watching the blizzard and playoff football on a Sunday afternoon.

jandd1983 (2582) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 5, 2014
On tap at Cugino’s. It poured a thick black color with a tan head. The aroma was of roastiness, coffee and vanilla beans. The taste was of syrup and lots of vanilla in the backbone. It was heavy on the palate with lingering chocolate sweetness. Very nice.

teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2014
22oz bottle. It pours deep black with a medium beige head. Roast, dark coffee nose with light hops and a final booze kick.. Roasty, herb-spice malt. Dry espresso, almond-nuttiness, yeasty. Really nicely put together. Chocolate mousse, or tiramisu. Bold and quite unique.
