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.

Black color with brown head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, a little fruity. Full body. Some alcohol. Complex rich flavors of coffee, chocolate, roasted nuts. Slightly sweet but not overwhelming. Excellent.

Black pour with thick brown head. Flavours and aroma of sweet molasses cookies, brown sugar. Nice alcohol warmth that lingers with some rich coffee notes. So great.

It may appear that I have a bias for this beer, but it surely is grounded in the beer. Pours an opaque ruby black with a quickly diminishing brown head. Aroma is caramel, coffee, hazelnut and alcohol. Taste is sweet caramel and molasses, as well as vanilla and creme brle. May be the best beer Ive ever drank.

slowrunner77 (10757) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 22, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2016 Yet ANOTHER awesomely decadent big dark brew from evil twin. This one has equal parts coffee and roasted black and chocolate malts in the aroma and flavor, with a bitter backbone, and a good dose of chocolate, vanilla, and almonds in there as well. Its like a really good imperial stout with amaretto, dipped in espresso. Huge body, heavy, but not sticky, cloying, or overly sweet. Absolutely delicious!" 2016 nice, but not quite as awesome.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Serving: Bottle from State Line Liquors. Rather nice to be able to compare this side by side with its barrel aged brother. It pours about the same with an almost black color and a thin tan head. The nose is noticeably different. No bourbon here, just plenty of roasted malt, coffee, light chocolate, and a mocha like sweetness. The flavor is a nice balance of the roasted malt and sweeted coffee and a hint of something on the end I cant quite place. Like blackberry but not. Full bodied and robust with a long finish. Really nice beer.

ttroha (514) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle from Maltitude. Pours dark black with tan head that quickly disappears. Aroma of roasted coffee and caramel. Tastes of espresso, caramel and booze. As a slow boozy burn that lingers on my throat and tongue after each sip. Delicious

[5760-20130830] Bottle. Roasted raisin malt aroma has a bit of a jalepeno pepper. Black brown body with a quick brown head. Roasted pepper skins flavour has a bit too much burnt coffee. Full body. Tasty but super burnt. (7/3/7/3/15) 3.5

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle thanks to Alemax. Pours very dark brown with quickly settling, light brown head, essentially no lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, caramel, toffee. Flavor is sweet, huge caramelized sugar, coffee, roasted malt, toffee, nutty and toasted with a dark chocolate, roasted, bittersweet finish. Soft carbonation, medium-full body, and very smooth texture.
