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.

Merci à kbudd19 et à dresden pour les bouteilles. Une belle robe onctueuse et noire. Un col largement crémeux et solide. La dentelle n’est pas très élaborée mais belle. Au nez, des parfums décadents de lait au chocolat frappé, de vanille, de noisettes en pâte sucrée et de biscuits faits maison. En bouche, ce sont des saveurs de café qui se joignent à la fête orchestrée par le chocolat aux noisettes et les pralines vanillées. 11.5% d’alcool? Je me demande encore où il peut bien se trouver. Au palais, un corps souple qui montre un pétillement modéré et une texture soyeuse. En finale, j’aime comment la douceur de ses éléments ne devient pas écœurante pour mes papilles : la force de cette bière étiquetée comme un impérial stout réside dans sa capacité à être extrêmement facile à boire et superbement savoureuse. Meilleure avant 2015. De catégorie mondiale. Tout simplement délicieuse.

Fad: Ovenpå CBC var dette en fornøjelse at finde på fad på Søernes. Kulsort øl med et lille mokkabrunt skumhoved. Duft af kaffe og en tand chokolade. Virkelig lækker øl.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of malt and chocolate, very appealing. Totally opaque black/brown with a tan head that drops to a thin cover, a sheet of lace. Taste is deep roasted malt that turns over, making way for silky milk chocolate to push right through the palate to a creamy lightly bittered, lightly warmed finish. A terrific concoction, distressingly easy to drink. High recommendations.

Garrold (3778) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Clear, very dark brown. Just about black, really. Halo of tight, tan coloured head. Dark chocolate. Bonfire toffee. Treacle. Marzipan on the final sniff. Taste is thick sweetness. Then robust, chocolatey, roast malt dry. Coffee bean bitterness, followed by an apricot kernel, tangy, bitter finish.

thewolf (11881) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 27, 2014
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph. Pours deep opaque black with a small, rather fizzy, beige head. Aroma has lovely dark chocolate, coffee, almonds and walnuts. Medium, fairly prickly carbonation, fine creamy and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is lovely, elegant, fairly sweet. Almonds, coffee, toasted caramel, light vinious. Lingering, chewy malty bitterness. Nice.

Beaver (1599) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2014
22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown/black with a medium creamy brown head that slowly goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet fudgy chocolate with some roast, flowers and some tart fruit.

The flavor is sweet lactic chocolate with some roast coffee, vanilla, fruit and a fairly bitter finish. The alcohol is warming but not overbearing. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, it’s OK. Too sweet and alcoholic for me. The floral fruitiness didn’t mesh well with the roast chocolate to me.
