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.

Quite awesome. Strong Flavors and aromas. Chocolate, vanilla, coffee, toasted-bready malt with a slight sweetness and mild bitter finish. Beautifully dark with a thin head and heavy. Dessert beer.

tennisjoel (1299) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Picked up at Princeton Liquors in Plymouth. Dark pour. Tastes of licorice, vanilla, fig, molasses, soy. A bit thin for such a big beer. Not a huge fan. A bit pricey.

IvoR (92) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Pours dark like freshly brewed coffee. Aroma is thin and does not stand out. Flavor is bold and complex: coffee, vanilla, cookie dough, malt. Interesting brew but somewhat off balance.

Tap. Black with minimal head. Chocolate malt, medium sweetness. Hints of coffee. Incredibly smooth and well balanced. Light alcohol warmth. Likely the best stout I’ve ever had. Amazing stuff.

Gluepot (332) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2015 A pillowy, well-laced dark mocha head on a jet black body. Nose features dark malt, coffee and a touch of chocolate and booze. The taste profile leads with sumptuous, rich chocolate fudge. Dark roast coffee, tobacco, biscuit malt and caramel underpin the fudge. A hint of liquorice, brandy, oatmeal and a touch of cream work with the dense body and rich texture to create a cake-like, sustained mouth feel. Lots of tastes and sensations but no rough edges. A great IS.

Robe noire opaque avec un mince filet de mousse. Dentelle transparente à l’apparence huileuse. Arômes de chocolat aux noisettes, crème à la vanille, pâte à biscuits, cassonade, pain dorée bien cuit. Notes de café au lait, anis et sucre à la crème. Ça semble présager le diabète mais c’est surprenamment équilibré et sublime. J’ai l’impression d’avoir un gâteau liquide sous le nez. En bouche, chocolat fudge, vanille, crème fraîche. Saveurs également de biscuit Graham, noisettes, cappuccino et anis. Rondeur en bouche incroyable. C’est certes sucré, mais les saveurs se complètent dans un tout presque sans faille. Ce n’est pas d’une complexité à tout casser mais le mélange de saveurs et la sensation en bouche en font une bière dessert de qualité. À partager entre amis autour d’une fondue au chocolat.
