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.

Bottle - pours pitch with a tan head. Aroma is fabulous, sweet bread, vanilla, brown sugar and yumminess. Mouth feel is dry, but with a thickness that lingers in the mouth. Very nice!

On tap. Pours pitch black with an off-white head. Super delicious aroma, both sweet coffee and biscuits combined with prune puree and chestnuts. Rich body, yet not super heavy making it surprisingly drinkable. A soft and smooth roastiness, vanilla sugar yet never cloying, dark dried fruit and subtle coffee. Everything about this beer seem to be in perfect balance making it extremely enjoyable. Even the booze is hard to detect. Excellent. 311013

Bottle poured a black color with a coating of dark brown head that took some agressive pouring to produce. Aroma has huge dark roasted malt, coffee, sweet chocolate, and some hazelnut. Mouth feel is heavy with a big thick body and low side carbonation but it is there. Flavor again has rich roasted malt, chocolate, nuts, coffee, and a light sweetness.

Huge black oily pour lots of brown soil head this shit does not fuck around. Desert any one? Aroma of hazelnut, chocolate, coffee, how is this beer? Flavour time we have some nice sweetness that doesn’t feel like a dump truck of honey, which is surprising given the aroma, some roasted malts, some coffee tucked in there, on it jives, very well blended. Welcome to Heaven, mothafuckas

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.
