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.

Well carbonated for style and ring of head persists. Aroma of dark chocolate and dark fruits with some cookie. Taste is pretty clean with balanced bitterness and is pretty smooth. For style I think there are better beers so not my fav but still good and worth trying

Appearance: Black body beneath a creamy brown head that fades to a light brown ring along the outside of the glass. Very little lacing. Aroma: It has a rich chocolate cookie aroma. It really reminds me of a chocolate cookie. Taste: It has a delicious rich but light roasted coffee flavor. There is a presence of dark chocolate as well, but it is very delicate and blends into the coffee-like flavor. It is important to note that while this beer maintains an ABV of 11.5% there is zero noticeable alcohol. Palate: It has a wonderfully full mouthfeel that just coats every nook can cranny with flavor and richness. It is fantastic. Zero astringency, zero harsh bitterness, and zero unpleasantness.. Overall: This is a fantastic beer. I will be buying it again if I can. I would highly recommend it to others who enjoy coffee or chocolate and dont want any of the normally associated bitterness or harshness. Its wonderful.

Nice...like a cookie beer. Thick black pour. Aroma of vanilla and caramel. Taste had more milk chocolate flavor but a nice malty and toffee backbone. Plenty of booze in there too. Heavy mouthfeel...great stuff.

I open the bottle and pour a toasty-chocolate, thick, dark liquid into my glass and my nose follows a heavy vanilla accent in after it. The head, soft and dark, is speckled with even darker accents; the foam is almost insignificant and definitely short-lived. The creamy texture of this beer warrants a thought of dessert, but I could imagine pairing this with a tender lightly seasoned pork loin or a cool bowl of soft ice cream. The feel is a light carbonation, not as silky as it pours, but it definitely plays over your tongue. Boozy, but not overwhelming, and an experience Ill look for again!
