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.

Just as my mouth envisioned this brew! Beautiful rich dark chocolate appearance that finishes with the sweetness of biscotti! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours pitch black with a frothy mocha head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of coffee with some chocolate and vanilla undertones. Taste is a nice balance of sweet and bitter with neither being overpowering. Creamy mouth feel, softer carbonation and full bodied. Awesome stout, really enjoyed this one.

Vignale (2281) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2014
Flaska från SB. Stor söt doft av vanilj, kaffe och chokladkola. Maffigt tjock smak med kaffe, choklad, vanilj, nötter, smörkola och sötlakrits. Eftersmaken är kärvare och balanserar de söta smakerna bra. Hårdrostade smak med tjära och bitter mörk choklad. Bra balans och riktigt maffig. Fantastiskt god.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2014 Bottle and draft. Pours very dark brown to black in color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have roast, coffee, chocolate, a subtle nutty character. Big flavor, smooth drinking, over the top for a porter even the Imperial variety.

bgb1991 (125) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2014
Hazlenut, alcoholic, coffee aroma. So god damn amazing. Beautiful lour like melted chocolate. Smooth hazlenut and warm alcohol taste. A bit of sweet malt but doesnt last long as roasted notes take over. A bit on the alcoholic side, makes for a warm beer. Near perfect beer.

GenDV138 (2442) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Bottle poured into a Belgian tulip. Pours a thick motor oil consistency, jet black color with half an inch of tan head. Head fades quickly into a ring around the glass. Not really any lacing. Aromas of coffee, cinnamon, dark chocolate, caramel, espresso beans. Great nose. Tasting notes of roasted coffee, slight burnt coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, coffee bitterness. Full body with a sticky dry finish. Pretty smooth for 11.5%.

Rune (8730) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
200ml glass, 11.5 % abv, from the tap menu at Crowbar. Jet black body. Faint tan coloured head, good lacing. Oak vanilla on the nose, hints of coffee and chocolate as well. Vanilla ice cream to the taste buds offset by roasted chocolate. Full bodied, velvety and smooth in the mouth with warming alcohol down the swallow. Almost top-notch (Oslo 12.02.2014).
