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.

pfc514 (89) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Pours like motor oil, black with a tan head. Solid roasted malts with a sweet background in the aroma. Milk chocolate, bitterness, and a mouthfeel that makes you feel like you could chew this beer. Fantastic.

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

Torrefacto (1095) - 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 (511) - 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 (443) - 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 (3849) - 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.
