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.

Tap @ Mekong shared with HopTsing. Very dark with dissipating mocha head and moderate lacing. Smells like irish coffee. Tastes bittersweet. A little sharpness in mouth with a bitter roasty finish.

Bottle from Food and Friends in Philly Pours jet black with a smallish tan head that had to be coaxed out and dissipated rather quickly. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, coffee, chocolate, almonds, brown bread, light pitted fruit, toffee, molasses, and a touch of alcohol. Really great nose on this one! The flavor is diabetes inducing sweetness. Lots of smokey syrupy molasses caramel and brown sugar up front. The coffee cuts through the sweetness as does the tart fruitiness and a touch of alcohol. Thick body with a minimal amount of carbonation and a sweet sticky syrupy mouthfeel. This is a huge sweet sticky beer, but it really does work for me. The nose is incredible here and Id love if we could shave about 10 points of gravity.

VsXsV (2143) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with small to medium tan head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, coffee, biscuits, bread and raw sugar. Really, really good aroma. Tate is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of vanilla, chocolate and biscuit. Medium to full bodied with low carbonation. Really an excellent beer. Delicious. Very rich though.

Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is vanilla, coffee, hazelnut, chocolate. Mouthfeel is very creamy with vanilla, roasted almonds, chocolate, honey, marshmallows. Quite odd, but very good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Draft at Mekong. Pours black with a nice tan head. You can literally smell the coffee from a foot away. Stunning levels of expresso in the aroma. It’s like they kegged Starbucks. An entire store in one keg. Flavor is a match. This is coffee and espresso. A bit of chocolate and vanilla play around in the background, but this is just really about amazingly rich coffee. Desert in a glass. Loved, loved, loved this one.
