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.

Inky black body with a chocolaty cap floating on top. Taste and aroma are so very awesome. Milk chocolate, spice, vanilla, and all come across so very sweet. Can’t really find any faults in this beer..... maybe to sweet. Coffee shows through in the lingering aftertaste. I hit strange notes of black cherry but not really. Has Evil Twin ever made a bad beer? This beer verges on being epic but never makes it there....... so ya this a almost epic beer that is some how simply complex.

Thanks cards04 for the sample! Great beer. Great aroma of sweet malts and a barley wine quality. Dark body some lacing. Chocolate baking chips taste coffee biscuits. Nice.

I simply can?t find fault with this beer. I?m not sure what exactly is keeping me from giving this beer a perfect score... I guess that there might be a better beer out there. Although this one will be hard to beat. If I?m ever on death row...I might replace my final meal with this beer. Pours a thick black. Almost pours chunky. Head is dark brown and as soft looking as a pillow. Aromas are chocolate chip cookies or biscotti. Strawberries and cream, coffee too. Feels like silk in the mouth. This is deceptively smooth. No alcohol whatsoever. Just layer upon layer of milk chocolate. Fruity notes as well. Strawberries perhaps? Coffee. Sweet, sticky, and smooth. Wow. Superb. Amazing. Thanks Evil Twin for brewing this epic masterpiece.

Pours a pitch black. Oily mouth feel. Beautiful beige head. This is a truly exceptional beer. Full mouth feel, actually getting some biscotti in palate. Unbelievable beer.
