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.

One of my favorite offerings from evil twin. Thick dark brown pour and good lacing. Chocolate, cookies, fresh dough, toffee, maple, and vanilla on the nose. Creamy and sweet, like melted chocolate ice cream. Nice toasted malt, bread, cinnamon. Really excellent.

kathouse (1107) - Nevada, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Dark with just a hint of burgundy around the edges. Cookie and baked bread aromas are very nice. Sweetened body of brown sugar and roasted figs. Good roast finish but the alcohol burns it off quickly.

This damn jet-black bomber with kakhi head from Evil Twin is nothing to mess with. Huge aroma and taste of coffee, malt, caramel, and rich creaminess. Another expensive, but fun trip from Evil Twin. 22oz bomber.

GlasgowTAD (130) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - OCT 31, 2014
Pitch black beer with a foamy caramel coloured head. Smells of biscotti, molasses and slightly of malts. Taste is an opulent, rich dark chocolate and sweet biscotti biscuit. There is a pleasant coffee bitterness involved too. This beer is a replacement for desert or you could just have this instead of a breakfast coffee.

shrubber85 (7973) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle. Chocolate fudge, light cinnamon, and hay aroma. Black with small head. Very sweet chocolate fudge malt, and lightly bitter grass/hay flavor. Nice balance - sweet without being cloying. Very pleasant.

JHeath99 (1166) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours an opaque dark black with a ring of beige head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts. Taste of chocolate and a coffee and roasted malt that lingers.

Duft av kaffe, bek, lakris og vanilje. Dyp sort farge. Lite skum, ring langs kant. Markant smak av alkohol, kaffe og lakris.

NordicV (1229) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2014
Svart öl med ljusbrunt skum. Kaffe, choklad och mandel i doften. Detta blir ändå tydligare i smaken tillsammans med en välbalanserad alkoholbeska. Att dricka denna öl är som att äta en riktigt härlig och fyllig chokladefterrätt.
