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.

DonGregorio (612) - POLAND - MAR 4, 2017
Bottle shared at tasting. Black colour, small beige head. Aroma of chocolate, almonds, cookies. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light to medium bitter, with lots of dark chocolate, some coffee, cookies, amaretto-like notes, roasty and light alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Delicious, but not as intense and impressive as expected.

JDBaker11058 (2427) - Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2017
appearance: near black, with a frothy, creamy light tan head that lingered for the entire glass, unusual in a high-abv beer like this, and impressive. aroma: strong nose of dark chocolate, vanilla, burnt sugar, almond extract, toast. taste: syrupy aspartame-laden chocolate and almond extract, with burnt vanilla, a spoonful of slightly sour lactic sweetness, an off-putting lemon zest zing, and a boozy note that started off very well-hidden and slowly morphed into a sinister, vomitous burn at the back of my throat. finish: palate was both somehow too boozy and hot, but also too light and watery feeling; not sure how they pulled of that bi-fecta. notes: Wretched. Bad tallboy? Hard to say, no best-by date. This beer is bullshit, and was substantially improved when, loathe to waste the back half of what had been a $5 can (come on, Quench!), I added half a cup of Great Divide Yeti to it. Can from Quench in Silver Spring.

mviljamaa (206) - FINLAND - MAR 1, 2017
Tap. Light yellow-brown head and very dark brown, almost black colour. The rich aroma is inviting and has mämmi, strong espresso and raw cocoa. Palate is perfectly smooth and light, very pleasant, perfect. Taste has strong coffee/espresso and dark chocolate, but there’s also a very sweet undernote that has flavours such as berry yoghurt chocolate, marshmallow, marsipan, tiramisu and Cointreau. This is like liquid dessert. Very rich, very delicious, very sweet, but not overly so. An excellent stout. 0.5 liters of this is a bit too much though, because the taste is so rich that 0.2 liters would be enough.

Tap. Pitch black, frothy brown foam. Strong coffee aroma with very weird scent, like chilli. than vanilla, cinnamon, biscuits, cocoa, licorice, almonds. Mainly bitter little sour and sweet. Full body, oily, long bitter finish with alcohol aftertaste.

Can from, at and shared with Rickfifty. Nice to enjoy an Evil Twin Imperial * Break together again! Pours black with a dark brown hue. Close to no head. Marzipan, alcohol, fruit nose. Some cherry, Maraschino cherry. Roasted malt, vanilla, almonds, marzipan flavour. Quite a lot of others as well, complex. Quite sweet, some bitterness. Thick, oily body. Medium, fizzy carbonation. Very good, would definitly buy some if I could get my hands on some more cans! Thanks for saving half a can for me, Rick!
