4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Dark color with a small bit of brown head. Smells of chocolate, coffee, roasted, a little smoke. Taste has a lot of chocolate, mocha. Also vanilla, with some hop bitter. Very sweet overall, but in a good way.

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.

(Keg at OlutExpo 2013) The beer poured black. Its head was small and lightly brown. Aroma had chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts and liquorice. Palate was full bodied and dryish with medium carbonation. Flavours were roasted malts, vanilla, liquorice, sweetness, hops and bitterness. Afteraste was roasty and bitter. A very tasty and balanced imperial stout. A bit too sweet.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
2012 Vintage on Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured dense, pitch night black with a thin, light tan head. This had a thick mouthfeel, viscously coated my palate. Thick, smooth, yet some roast and a rich cocoa nib flavor. Some mocha, bittersweet notes, but roast was low. Very flavorful. Hardly a hint of oxidation or thinning with year spent in the keg. Very tasty brew.
