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.

ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2013
22 oz bottle into a pint glass. From notes. A: Pours a pitch black color. There isnt much head, just a small tan-colored film. This has some nice alcohol legs, it must be said. S: This is really chocolaty, with a pleasant backing of black coffee. I really love all the chocolate in the aroma - while its simplistic, the way the two notes coalesce is really great. A simple but very effective aroma. T: There is a ton of strong dark chocolate to open the flavor profile up. This sensation gradually builds up a coffee tone on the back end. Between the two flavors is a notable cookies n cream flavor to balance. Tons of flavor help make this a winner, though it could be a tad more complex. Who cares, though?! M: This isnt quite as creamy as Id expect a sweet-ish stout to be. Having said that, it features a good body and some nice viscosity. Poor carbonation means the sweetness sticks around for a while on the palate. Despite that, theres no hint of the 11.5% on either the flavor or feel, and it goes down quite easily. O: I love how chocolaty this is, and how balanced the coffee come across. Having said that, I dont know if its quite as good as Founders Breakfast Stout. Certainly, its an excellent coffee brew, but Im not sure its worth its exorbitant price. Even if this were just $10/bottle, I would consume this like water. Id still buy it again at $18 a bottle, though.

aardvark1 (29) - POLAND - MAY 20, 2017
W nos uderzają kawa i alkohol, na drugim planie migdały i czekolada, w ogle nie czuć właściwie paloności. Dość wyklejające, alkohol intensywnie (zbyt intensywnie) rozgrzewa przełyk. Trochę się zawiodlem

tricksta_p (4338) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2017
Can from Speciaalbierpakket. Aroma is dark malt, vanilla, coffee, sweet chocolate, some liquorice, coffee grounds, caramel, touch of almond, with some alcohol. Flavour is quite sweet and moderate bitter. A little boozy, body is full. Rich and fairly complex dessert Stout, very sweet, flamboyant stuff.

Bardzo fajny aromat, kawowo-czekoladowo-migdałowy. Jest dobrze tutaj. Ale w smaku jest słabiej niestety, mało ciała, mniej się dzieje.
