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!

Really dark and viscous beer with mocha color head. Aroma reminds me cookies and vanilla. Taste is more bitter with coffee notes. Body is smooth and heavy and alcohol is really well hidden. Easy drinking and tasty imperial stout.

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.

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...
