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.

RoyalFlushing (324) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle poured a deep dark cola with a medium mocha head, reddish hues, and minimal lacing. Aroma is big coffee notes, cocoa, and roasted malt. Taste is milk chocolate and roasted malt upfront followed by coffee beans, bakers chocolate, and a hint of spiciness. Enjoyable creamy mouthfeel with a wonderfully smooth finish. Big ABV, but so incredibly drinkable. Love this beer!

Advocate_Ames (464) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2013
A nice head. The scent is of chocolate, roasted malts, nuts, vanilla, and coffee. I taste slight coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, sweet hazelnut and vanilla flavors. Overall the Biscotti Break is very tasty. My palate wasn?t hit much at all. The after taste was pleasant too.

BMMillsy (1626) - Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Pours deep brown to black with a tiny mocha brown head. Sweet licorice and chocolate aroma almost like a chocolate liquer. Some bready notes. Very nice. Thick viscous mouthfeel opens up a wealth of flavor. Very sweet vanilla licorice up front, with a bit of chocolate, almond and dark fruits. Some lactose it seems here. A candy dessert beer here, but plenty drinkable. The bomber is a bit much, so probably want to share this one. Not really any alcohol notes, which is impressive at 11.5%. Nice brew with a super creamy body. Jus

Bottle pours thick almost black with dark brown head. Huge chocolate malt aroma. taste matches aroma with sweet chocolate, biscuit, slight roast, vanilla. Finish sweet chocolate and slight roast. Thick creamy palate. Alcohol minimally detectable.

So many things went right in this beer, just excellent.

AlexChillton (18) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle on 01/07/12 Pours pitch black with a small ring of light brown head. The nose is very chocolatey and biscuity with a hint of coffee. Love the taste of this one. It's like having a chocolate biscotti with a cup of coffee. So good.

A - Dark brown-black with a thin finger of chocolate-khaki colored head. Fades normal. S - Dark chocolate malts, coffee, vanilla, almonds, dark fruits, molasses, black licorice, some roasted character, and some booze. T - Dark chocolate malts, dark fruits, vanilla, coffee, molasses, black licorice, toasted almonds, some roasted flavors, some earthy hops, and some booze. M - Full bodied, moderate carbonation. Smooth and a bit syrupy with a warming, sweet, roasted finish. D - Fantastic. Great overall balance with the imperial stout base with the vanilla, almonds, and other flavors.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2013 Bottle. Appearance: very thick black pour war with minimal dark tan head. Aroma: huge dark chocolate and coffee liqueur with some dark dried fruit. Taste: exact same as taste with that liqueur taste the only hint of alcohol but not out of place but adds that extra sweetness that is sometimes off putting to me; very liqueurish. Mouthfeel: very thick, syrupy with very little to no carbonation. Overall: toeing the line with being a little to sweet for me but very good from a chocolate/coffee imperial porter angle.
