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.

Oh jeez. Pours pitch black with very little, dark brown oily head. Aroma has soooo much nice, dark chocolate, a nice roast, a slight smoke and some vanilla. The taste is very pleasing with sweet notes of dried plums, chocolate and vanilla. Along follows a nice roasted, dry coffee. If i didn’t know, i would have guessed that this beer contains around 8-9% alcohol. Slight fizzy carbonation, and very full body.

Near chewy body with carbonation that struggles to keep up but is not obviously too low. Rich flavor, even for style. A bit too sweet up until the finish. Lots of dark chocolate and a bit of coffee.

not sure why this exists, as the barrel aged is far superior. on its own, this is just ok.

65cl bottle at Schouskjelleren. Best before 2015. No other date or batch info. Pitch black colour with no head. Aroma is laden with alcohol, oak, sherry and syrup. Flavour is sweet at first but gets really bitter after a while. Lots of alcohol, raisins, syrup, sherry, oak and cocoa. Long, lingering aftertaste. I was disappointed by this. I heard so much good about it and I feel it didn’t deliver.

aroma of cocoa, caramelized sugar and espresso. Flavors of smooth coffee and caramel cream, biscuits and hints of dark fruits. Velvety texture.

Had on tap at Edmund’s Oast. Mom actually liked this beer. Had several sips. In fact kept reaching for it. That sort of says it all. It’s dark, delicious and totally satisfying.. Tons of chocolate that is less apparent as it warms. Could be the perfect dessert to a really nice meal. Mental note to try this one again and with some salty fare. Curious how much better in can get. Phenomenal.

Pours jet black with a nice tense brown.head. Aroma is lots of chocolate and coffee fruity slightly sweet soy dried figs. Flavor is heavy yet drinkable, as aroma with lots of coffee and roasted malts, good bitterness and a bit pungent peppery.

Barwa: czarna, nieprzejrzysta nawet pod światło. Piana brązowa, drobna, szybko opadająca. Wysycenie niskie do średniego. Piwo jest gęste i lepkie. Aromat: czekolada i kawa - wyraźna słodycz. Cudownie kuszący. Smak: j.w. Do tego jedynie lekka nuta palona i alkoholowa. Smak dość delikatny, choć na końcu wyczuwalna także kwaskowość z ciemnych słodów. Cena / jakość: [4/5] Jest to pierwsze piwo uwarzone przez brata znanego i u nas Mikkelera, jakie miałem okazję próbować i od razu dotarło do czołówki najlepszych trunków mojego osobistego rankingu. W mojej ocenie skłania się bardziej w stronę portera niż stouta, ale to mi akurat nie przeszkadza. Wolę piwa bardziej czekoladowe niż z posmakiem suszonych śliwek. Tutaj czekoladowość jest wielka zarówno w smaku i aromacie. Mimo dość wysokiej ceny moim zdaniem warto. Jeśli uda się je gdzieś znaleźć...

Tap @ Tröls. Dark and sweet with loads of dark chocolate, syrup and raisins. Salty food takes it to the next level.

Rating #1009 - February 28, 2014 - #beerguychrisgeekbeer for #week9 - $17.29 CAD for a 650mL bottle from Coop. Aroma is heavy roast malt,lots of coffee, chocolate. Taste is mild bitterness, medium-heavy alcohol character. Really cool porter, which easily stands up with some of the bigger Imperial Stouts. Has a cool bready chocolate character developed throughout. Phenomenal.
