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 bottle that is definitely labeled "Imperial Stout" so I don’t know why it’s in the Porter category. But anyway it kind of slipped it’s way into my glass. Thick and sticky with a finger of dark brown head, quickly faded to a small ring. Aromas are rich and extremely complex, bitter baking chocolate, roasty malts, dark fruits like figs and dates, raisins, brown sugar and molasses, almost no hops present. A little alcohol present in the smell. Taste is amazing, tons of cocoa, coffee, toffee, caramel, molasses, burnt sugar and cookie vanilla malt, all roasted and toasted in a beautiful warming finish. Glad I saved it for 12/25. Lovely mouthfeel, thick and creamy, a subtle carbonation helps lighten the heavy body. This is an excellent stout, to be savored and enjoyed.

Deep black pour under a thin beige head. Amazing aroma with chocolate iced donuts and almonds with a gentle kiss of coffee. Lovely rich flavor with bittersweet dark chocolate, doughnut tones, a little almond and a sweet semi roasty finish. Incredible.

500ml bottle served in a snifter glass. A: Pours a deep black color. Creamy and oily. Forms a small and very creamy and thin bubbled beige to brown head. Small retention and some spotty lacings formed and left in the glass. Some brown chunks can be see floating on the bottom of the glass, mainly in the last pours S: Traditional Imperial Stout in the nose: Strong notes of roasted malts, chocolate malts, coffee beans, licorice, brown bread, brown sugar, vanilla and oak. Some notes of alcohol in the very end. Sweet and balanced T: Follows the notes: Sweet upfront. Strong notes of roasted malts, chocolate malts, dark chocolate, coffee, brown sugar, brown bread. Yeasts are quite bready. Hops are grassy. Good bitterness in the end (roasted and hoppy). In overall, a smooth and balanced bittersweet taste M: Heavy, creamy and molasses body. Sweet and bready upfront. Bitter roasted aftertaste O: Great drinkability. Excellent Imperial Stout. Smooth and pleasant. Masterpiece [ BA Review @ 12/21/2013 ]

Bottle. Courtesy of James. Split with Vinnie, James, and Dave Rivera. Pours dark maroon brown opaque with a small, tan, fuzzy head. Aroma of pure almond butter, cookie dough, sweet, chocolate chip biscotti, and dark, dark chocolate. Mouth feel is velvety smooth, with some rich, earthy, chocolaty tones and a huge, sweet, slightly bitter finish. This is an insane brew, which tastes more like a cookie dough stout than a porter. This is prisine, and it tastes exactly like its namesake; biscotti.
