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.

Dguste en compagnie de Marco et Mademoiselle Irina, cette bire coule dans mon verre en prsentant une mousse brune couleur mocha forme de trs grosses bulles de courte vie. Rapidement, le liquide est dnud de sa mousse et vif. Aucune trace du passage de la mousse sur le verre. Le nez est un magnifique amalgame de ptisseries comprenant bien sr du biscuit sec, mais aussi de la framboise et de la crme ptissire. Cest tellement doux au nez! Je pourrais facilement passer des heures humer ce divin fumet. En bouche, le liquide ma tonn par son corps beaucoup plus mince que ce quoi je mattendais. Non pas que la bire eut manqu de tonus, mais je mattendais un liquide beaucoup plus riche et dense. Cest souple et mme plutt lger! Les saveurs sont discrtes. La framboise revient la charge accompagne de caf sans amertume et dune gousse de vanille. Jolie effervescence qui contribue la lgret gnrale, mon verre sest retrouv vide bien rapidement...

travita (4956) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle. The look is dark, black in color, with a tan head. The smell is soy sauce, cocoa notes, malt, chocolate brownies, and booze. The taste is alcohol, boozy, soy, chocolate, malt, roast, and good. Good beer but just missing from great. Big and lots going on.

Alexanderdahl (131) - DENMARK - JUL 18, 2015
Pours pitch black with mocha brown, fat head. Sweet, yet slight boozy nose. Coffee and roasted malts. Slight booze in taste on impact, but rounds off into sweetness and vanilla. A little sherry finish on it. Hard rock candy and oxidation. Little sharp malty sweetness, like molasses. Bitter dry chocolate. DRY!

DialSquare (4802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2015
On tap at Giant Eagle in Grandview. Blackish pour with thin tan head that leaves a ring. Aroma of sweet and roasty malt, chocolate. Tastes mix all of the typical imp stout flavors well - cocoa, vanilla, coffee, molasses. Its the palate and drinkability that put this over the top - thinnish with bit of a milky vibe.
