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.

Bamsen78 (2888) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2013
Draught @ Christian Firtal, Odense. Pours cloudy nearly black with airy dark tan head. Dark aroma of malt, caramel, chocolate, and shortbread. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, with heavy notes of coffee, biscuit, sugar, and dark chocolate. Warming alcohol presence. Lingering, sweetish and alcoholic aftertaste. Really good, indeed!

Best before 2015 So I figured I’d give this a try, as I found it at a "good" price of $16 for the bomber. Black, inky, some rim graham foam. Smells initially like booze, then coffee, then almonds, then dark toasted malts, then some vanilla, almond, sugar, hints of amaretto. If the booze wasn’t so strong on the nose, then I’d really enjoy the smell of the beer overall. Flavor is alcohol, then dark fruits, more alcohol and some bitterness. Seriously, the alcohol is too much here for 11.5% ABV, brutal. Medium on full bodied with low carb and a tacky, dry finish. I don’t get it.

jesperhammer (2815) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2013
14-NOV-2013, draft @Mikkeller, Black Sensation night. Dark, dark brown almost black with low brown head. Aroma is sweet roast and rye. Is this a rye porter? It is quite bready. Taste is loads of sweet roast - somewhat dusty with a lot more hops than in aroma. Long smooth roasted taste with a surprisingly soft carbonation for a Westbrook brew.

A: Dark Opaque Hue, Passes No Light, Brown Head Ring, Some Lacing S: Dark Coffee Beans, Dark Roasted Chocolate Malts T: Coffee, Sweet Chocolate, Dark Malts M: Average Carbonation, Medium to Full Bodied, Mildly Bitter, Mildly Sweet Overall, pretty damn solid but the coffee comes out a lot more as it warms out.

JulienHuxley (2852) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle. Opaque black pour, thin brown foam. Chocolaty, roasty aroma, cold brewed coffee/chili, cinnamon. Taste is chocolaty, nice cold coffee flavor, roasty, a tad green, quite spicy finish. Palate is not too heavy, light-med carbonation, pretty drinkable. Nice IS.

stoutnick (444) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2013 Dark with tan foam. Aroma is vanilla to the max, and some dark malt. Biscotti vibe comes out from vanilla and chocolate and coffee aromas. Smells frickin sweet! Flavour is same when chilled - Too Sweet! As warms becomes more balanced with malt coming out. Finish is sticky sweet with lingering malt bitterness. Good dessert stout, but definitely not one of my favourite beers.

Azand222 (170) - Westminster, Colorado, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Bomber pour. Thick dark brown color with a dark tan head. The aroma is rich and malty, heavy on the coffee but almost chocolate. The taste is rich and malty to start. Very full body with a sweet bitter malt finish. Overall very rich and heavy, great imperial stout.

Garlic_of_Doom (394) - SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2013
Bottle. Black with a espresso coloured head. Aroma has lots of sweet notes (honey?), vanilla, dark chocolate, coffee, slight alcohol on the end. Taste has fine dark bitter chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, slight salt, chocolate mousse, slight alcohol. Silky smooth mouth feel. Bitter and dry dark chocolate ending
Everything in both aroma and taste was very balanced. Imperial Porter? I’d say Imperial Stout but what the heck. Great!

MrFecesious (903) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2013
On tap at apex. Pretty much black. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, hay, dark fruit. Taste is roasted milk chocolate, dark fruit, coffee. Very nice and quite pleasantly malty.

JStax (2773) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2013
22 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a thick, viscous black with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma has roast, coffee, vanilla beans. Taste is a big, syrupy sweetness with a lot of vanilla coming through. Heavy on the palate. Lingering chocolatey sweetness. Smooth coffee.
