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.

Draft. Pours black with a dark brown head. Aromas of chocolate, alcohol, roasted malts, liquorice, maybe vanilla. Quite sweet flavor along the lines of the aroma - pretty true to the biscotti moniker. Aftertaste of roasted malt and alcohol. A bit of a gimmicky feel, but pretty good stuff.

Pour is a brown black with puffy tan head that dies down. Smell of baking cookie, chocolate,booze, licorice, and more. Taste of strong chocolate, cookies, big and robust caramel and creamy booze, it’s fuckin good

BrettGT (103) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2016
Aroma of biscotti, chocolate, coffee, roast. Pours jet black with a lasting creamy beige / brown head. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Starts chocolatey and creamy sweet and finishes with more roasted and mildly bitter coffee. Full bodied, soft carbonation, sticking on the lips like sweets, finishes slightly dry and roasted. Great!

andyhwcinc (1803) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 14, 2016
Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on a steamy late spring evening. Appearance is pitch black, moderate consistency, rich off white and slightly tan head. Aroma of cocoa, chocolate, doesn’t smell sweet, smells nice. Taste is nice, chocolately with notes of dark roast coffee and light vanilla. Not too decadent. Very good.

Arayaga2 (2079) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2016
Brown/black, with a brown head. Aroma is marzipan, and sweet toast, it really does smell like biscotti. Taste is the same, but lighter, and much sweeter than I expected, with light, almost fruity carbonation.$3.75 pint can

Hoprider (360) - DENMARK - JUN 11, 2016
Pours black with a small dense brown head. Light aromas of biscotti, licorice, dark chocolate and maybe a hint of vanilla. The taste has only light sweetness and a fairly hard roast. Licorice again and dark chocolate. The finish is again pretty roasted and dry/bitter.. Mouthfeel is medium full. The BA version is a whole lot better than this.
