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.

On tap black with dark beige foam. Taste is chocolate and coffee with chocolate much more so. Smooth with good body starts and finishes well with no hint of alcohol. A good beer but for to my taste a bit to sweet, evoking a faint hint of chocolate milk.

Draft. Black pour with tan head. Dark malts with some more strong sweet and light bitterness aromas. Flavor is much smoother than aroma would present, nice sweet flavor with some darker malt overtones.
