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.

*from old note* Really really thick, oily IS with burnt/roasted coffee and lots of vanilla, and a little almond. Smell pretty much the same. One of the best IS i have every tried.

Black pour, brown head. Aroma of coffee, espresso and dark chocolate. Very sweet flavor of dark chocolate, espresso and cookies with a sweet finish. Full bodied. Fantastic.

Pours an opaque black with a small lasting brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, cocoa nibs, chocolate, and a sweet maltiness. Flavour consists of roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa nibs, coffee, faint alcohol(super tame and we?ll hidden for an 11.5 percent beer),moderately sweet maltiness, mild-med bitterness and a somewhat dry finish.

Reimer96 (1579) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 11, 2015
Pours an opaque black with a small frothy brown head that dissipates into a nice ring that leaves lace. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, cocoa and alcohol with a delicious sweetness in the scent. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, espresso a d a good alcohol warming on the finish with some bitterness from the roasted malts to balance the sweetness and alcohol... Great imperial stout!

fitwitchik (426) - Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2015
Poured from a 2013 bottle into a snifter like motor oil. A thick minimal head. Aroma is roasted sweet dark chocolate. Flavor is reminds me of a minted caramelized marshmallow dipped in dark chocolate. Slight bitterness in the finish. Delectable bitter sweet. Did I say dark chocolate?? Carbonation minimal but adequate considering the style & age. Overall a well above average Imperial Stout.

dagimp (847) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2015
On tap at the Tomato Bistro, Manayunk. Pours a super dark black with a little white lacing. Bitter, mineraly aroma. Mouthfeel is medium and actually kind of dry. Good amount of carbonation. Taste is interesting. Dry, minty, bready.... unique for this type of beer. No taste of the 11.5% abv. Solid but not great.

Chocolate on the nose with anise and vanilla. This is awesome. Big sips taste different than small sips and they are both just really really good. Sweeter on the small sips and a little boozy on bigger sips.

Deutlich schokoladiger Antrunk mit leichten Vanillenoten. Das Bier bleibt auf diesem Level, etwas fruchtig, malzig trocken, rund. Gut! 12/12/12//12/12

Creamy deep tan head, two fingers in depth. This beer is pitch black in color. In the aroma I’m getting dark chocolate, coffee with caramel malt undertones. Initially I get a sweetness in the taste that I wasn’t expecting. I’m getting a strong vanilla presence along with coffee, molasses, pecans or almonds along with dark chocolate notes. It is kind of reminicient of an ice cream sundae, without being coyingly sweet. Another awesome beer from EvilTwin.
