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.

22oz bomber. Pour very dark with a caramel colored lacing that disappears quickly. The aroma is very close to the aroma I get from KBS, really great. It tastes rich and brings out chocolate, coffee and some vanilla. One of the best non-ba imperial stouts I’ve had.

Found my May 2012 notes from visit to Tap and Mallet. Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of roasted malts with some coffee and a note of sweet vanilla underlying. Flavor has lots O roasted malts and a hint of coffee with a sweet finish of vanilla. A little bit of alcohol burn. Plenty warming.
