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 thats still all part of the secret Imperial ingredient keep it cool, clean, confident, arrogant and flamboyant. Forza Imperiale.

Pint can from Wine Warehouse. Pours nearly black with an inch of brown head. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, caramel, somewhat sweet smelling. Flavor is sweet vanilla, caramel, chocolate, coconut, and coconut milk. A hint of back-end booze, which after the past two weeks I dont mind - in fact I welcome some alcohol.

sawbuck (676) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2017
Nice aroma of bitter chocolate, some vanilla and some coconut infused bourbon. Ebony color with a tan head. Sweet chocolate malt up front. Complexity out of the gate is outstanding. Bittersweet chocolate, molasses, vanilla, and roasted coconut. Bitterness is sharp, with a nice warm booze echo. Slightly dry, nice boozy finish with bitter coffee/chocolate tones. Very good.

haha_hala (3) - Krakw, POLAND - JAN 29, 2017 does not count
Czarne, nieprzejrzyste, fajnie się mieni w świetle, po nalaniu ma śliczną czekoladową pianę, ktra szybka redukuje się do eleganckiego lacingu. W aromacie kawa, czekolada, kakao, trochę paloności, wanilia wychodzi po ogrzaniu, jest też olejek migdałowy. W ogle im cieplej tym lepiej dla tego piwa. W smaku podobnie, jest idealnie zbalansowane, nie za słodkie, czekoladowo-kawowe. Alkohol przyjemnie rozgrzewa przez co przywodzi na myśl picie likieru. Nie miało aż tak dużo ciała jak się spodziewałam.
