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.

Ar: Dark, deep, almost bitter smell. AP: like any stout, pitch black with medium tan head. Taste: Smooth, velvety, wow! I have to say, hard to sip this bad boy when its this good. Full, creamy body...perfectly balanced. Great beer!!!!

kkleu357 (599) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 18, 2015
From notes on 7/2/15. Finally pulled the trigger and bought this. Haven’t really been a fan of Evil Twin yet. This beer was good, but sort of a let down too. Poured kind of thin, with a nice coffee aroma. Very sweet tasting, but lacking in the mouthfeel. The sweetness was more reminiscent of a mocha than that of coffee.

HappyHandsClub (22) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 8, 2015
Bit of an oil slick over the taste buds. But aftertaste is fairly good, nothing pretentious, possibly a bit flat, could have stronger notes off the backside, it is fairly well balanced, didn’t put me to sleep, still searching for a bit more zest, front side is a bit like walking into Silver Dollar City’s old fashioned salt water taffy shop watching to taffy go round and round, candy front side dissipates to an oil slick on the taste buds, issues barrel aged version can’t eliminate. OVERSTATED ABV RATING AND EFFECT.

yourilevesque (476) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 6, 2015
Dégustée en compagnie de Marco et Mademoiselle Irina, cette bière coule dans mon verre en présentant une mousse brune couleur mocha formée de très grosses bulles de courte vie. Rapidement, le liquide est dénudé de sa mousse et à vif. Aucune trace du passage de la mousse sur le verre. Le nez est un magnifique amalgame de pâtisseries comprenant bien sûr du biscuit sec, mais aussi de la framboise et de la crème pâtissière. C’est tellement doux au nez! Je pourrais facilement passer des heures à humer ce divin fumet. En bouche, le liquide m’a étonné par son corps beaucoup plus mince que ce à quoi je m’attendais. Non pas que la bière eut manqué de tonus, mais je m’attendais à un liquide beaucoup plus riche et dense. C’est souple et même plutôt léger! Les saveurs sont discrètes. La framboise revient à la charge accompagnée de café sans amertume et d’une gousse de vanille. Jolie effervescence qui contribue à la légèreté générale, mon verre s’est retrouvé vide bien rapidement...

travita (4431) - Frisco, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle. The look is dark, black in color, with a tan head. The smell is soy sauce, cocoa notes, malt, chocolate brownies, and booze. The taste is alcohol, boozy, soy, chocolate, malt, roast, and good. Good beer but just missing from great. Big and lots going on.
