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 draft. Huge chocolate cherry aroma and flavor. A bomb without being sweet, somehow. Just amazing.

Torrefacto (889) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 8, 2013
Color negro opaco, espuma beige oscuro. Aromas de café, maltas tostadas, licor y pasas. En boca el inicio es de café dulce, que avanza hacia un amargor seco que se une a un toque cálido y licoroso.

HKdIPA (429) - HONG KONG - DEC 7, 2013
Pitch black pour with thin disappearing tan head. Sweet bready aroma - really could be biscotti. Rich is the best descriptor. Huge chocolate bready malty flavor that almost hides the booziness. Thick palate, in a nice way. Sweeter, less hoppy than other Evil Twin beer, Even More Jesus

CacheManyHose (383) - HONG KONG - DEC 7, 2013
Pours an inky pitch brown-black with almost no head - looks sticky but isn't. Big nose of coffee, roasted malts, lots of malty nutty sweetness, almonds, grapes, a little bit of raisin that's almost anise-y, very sweet like a fortified wine, almost. Can definitely smell the biscotti. The raisin smell made me slightly worried that I would find the taste too cloyingly sweet (as in many Belgian malty beers), but the flavour is big and deep even though it doesn't have much in the way of hops. But the flavour didn't disappoint - burnt roasted malts, vanilla, coffee, chocolate, very sweet, almost spicy. This is a malty beer! Smooth but drinkable body with very tiny bubbles of carbonation and a little slickness. The 11% ABV comes through in the taste. Finishes sticky. A big, bold, very malty and very dark beer.

HonkeyBra (3706) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours near black with a tan head. Aroma of very sweet chocolate, raisins, mild roast, molasses. Perhaps some mild nuttiness. Flavor is bracingly sweet. Prunes, ink, and raisins, with some generic chocolate notes and maybe a bit of stale coffee. Full bodied, syrupy mouthfeel. This is just not good at all.

Kapaopango (24) - SPAIN - DEC 6, 2013
Pours a opaque black with a frothy brown head. Aroma of coffe+chocolate (Moka) and almonds. Taste is really smoth with the almonds coffe and chocolate. The alcohol is very well hidden. It’s perfect! Cheers!

Gerbeer (2320) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours black with a moderate brownish head. Aromas of raisin bread toast, dried chocolate, vanilla latte, and heavily roasted malts. Flavors of rich coffee and cream, hints of dark chocolate, dried roasted malts, and toast. Dry, dusty finish with a bit of carbonation and quite a bit of alcohol.

Biere_Dieu (6) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013 does not count
Both sweet and bitter like coffee and biscotti with a faint mocha finish. Very dark and smooth with a light carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brnandersen (2448) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2013
65 cl. bottle poured in to a snifter. Pitch black with a dense, tan head. Sweet, roasted aroma with coffee, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, nuts and almonds. Taste is sweet. Full body with a perfect velvety, thick texture - perfect! Soft carbonation. Long lasting dry finish with chocolate milk and red berries. No sign of the 11,5 % alc. Soft. Excellent.
