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.

strattonspeaks (113) - Springfield, Missouri, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Black pour. Solid dark tan head. Fantastic nose. Chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla, coffee hints, and roasted malt. Taste is just as terrific. A little doughy. Thick chocolate bitterness, more vanilla, smoked dark fruit. Chewy and thick. Totally whips.

pfc514 (68) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Pours like motor oil, black with a tan head. Solid roasted malts with a sweet background in the aroma. Milk chocolate, bitterness, and a mouthfeel that makes you feel like you could chew this beer. Fantastic.

Color negro opaco, espuma beige oscuro. Aromas de café, maltas tostadas, licor y pasas. En boca el inicio es de café dulce, que avanza hacia un amargor seco que se une a un toque cálido y licoroso.
