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.

fiulijn (19385) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle from Belmont Station
Pitch black color with brown head, compact but not persistent. The aroma is wonderful; there are dark malts and dark chocolate, coffee truffle, fresh, floral. Good body strength, with very moderate residual sweetness; it has a very good flavor of dark chocolate, hints of coffee, and a strong dry liquorice presence that brings back memories of Danish beers such as Limfjords Porter; and then a touch of chili peppers.
