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 thats still all part of the secret Imperial ingredient keep it cool, clean, confident, arrogant and flamboyant. Forza Imperiale.

teorn88 (2470) - 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.

wchesser (1220) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Fresh batch-bottle. Pours deep thick black with espresso crema ring. Nose is coffee, dark malts, milk chocolate, light soy and molasses, booze became overwhelming on the nose as it warmed. Full bodied. Stewed figs, coffee, vanilla, light nuts, with hot, burning finish. Bit overrated, but would like to try again, maybe on draft and colder.

Gription79 (2296) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Had on draft at APEX. This is an amazing imperial stout. Big rich chocolate character, rich fruits(raisin, prune,fig), creamy milk chocolate, roasted malts, I picked up a touch of mint in the finish. Very good.

Bottle. Pours an inky black with a big tan head that lingers. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, malt, wood, sugar. Huge taste, lots of black coffee and sugar, with malt, wood. Lingering sweet and bitter coffee-malt. Excellent.

haukur (1335) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - DEC 31, 2013
Pitch black with a thumb of a brown head. Aroma certainly reminds me of Biscotti. Huge whiff of coffee, vanilla, sugar, bread and nuts. Smells almost like a cake. On the tongue it is surprisingly medium bodies considering how big this is. Weighing in at 11.5% it is incredibly drinkable and light. Finish is on the sweeter side. Certainly a good beer and maybe more exciting than I was expecting.

jake65 (2709) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle: Dark brown pour with a full brown head. Dissapates quickly leaving a light oily sheen. Complex aroma is sweet, smokey, coffee, and cocoa. Translates well into the taste. Emphasis on coffee, with molasses and smokey undertones. Id have to consider this a dessert beer for sure and Im digging the how the coffee blends with the sweetness.

Snyggt högt kakao brunt skum som sig bör drar sig undan och ölet ligger spegel blankt som natten. Doftar ok av malt kaffe och lite aningen vanilj. Ölet ligger härligt i gomen och smaken är ljuvlig mellan den rostade malten kaffet och vanilj. Aningen besk eftersmak så lite lagring bör göra pricken över i.

HopRedHead (391) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle from the Mane Liquor Male Sauna Club. Pours oily black with a creamy as fuck khaki head. Upfront aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, nuts and vanilla. Smells like a huge dessert. Flavours are immediate cocoa, followed by sweet nutty flavours and then a delayed espresso hit. Lingering coffee bitterness wont even let me set the glass down, guzzler. Velvety mouthfeel, stellar beer.
