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.

boydmarq (62) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Pours very dark coffee brown with a brown head that dissipates quickly.. Aroma of coffee, prunes and chocolate. Flavor is ultra rich - sweet and thick on the front end, a bit dry on the back. Can taste the alcohol. Very full-bodied, thick and a bit oily. Rich full body that doesn’t linger too long. A very nice beer, but didn’t quite live up to the hype.

kapusil (1432) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 14, 2017
From can. Pitch black body with a light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, vanilla, cocoa, coffee and cream. Taste of chocolate, plums, raisins, coffee, vanilla, bourbon and floral hops. Surprisingly mellow for a beer that is this strong. Great one for sure.

beskid (133) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 13, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2017 Dark brown, creamy head which quickly vanished. Deep aroma of coffee, cocoa, almonds, slightly alcoholic. Taste is lots of coffee, dark chocolate, nuts. Full body, quite warming inside. Feeling biscotti requires a bit of imagination, but there is something similar. The longer I drink it, the more I like it.

oobawa (1401) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 7, 2017
Massive chocolate-vanilla nose with hints of dark roasted coffee and licorice. Pours a gorgeous infinite black with a deep chocolate head and moderate lacing. Taste starts with a burst of dark chocolate and roasted malt, leading into a vanilla-laced middle underlined by dried apricots and black cherries, followed by a dry, roasty back end full of bitter chocolate, anise, and a deep vanilla sweetness. Mocha fade is accented by bitter, pine-tinged hops. Booze shows up like you’d expect in a 11.5% stout, but the warmth is bearable and the texture otherwise is thick and gooey. Delicious.

murzyn (294) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUL 7, 2017
Barwa czarna, piana beżowa, mała. Aromat to wspaniała, gorzka kawa, migdały, czekolada, wanilia i trochę paloności. Aromat wręcz wspaniały. W smaku pifko jest dość wytrawne. Jest wanilia, kawa, czekolada, wiśnia w alkoholu i czekoladzie, migdały. Wszystko to wykończone paloną goryczką. Alko wyczuwalne w szlachetnej formie. Bardzo dobre pifko.

sjorsvdg (535) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2017
Fenomenale imperial stout uit Amerika. Krachtig aroma van koffie, chocolade, framboos, pruim en alcohol. Deze komen ook terug in het smaakpalet, de koffie gecombineerd met het fruitige en kandij en karamel en bitterkoekjes, zorgt voor een prachtige smaakrevue. Lijkt zwart, is bruin, lichts schuimlaag (crème).

Offar (13) - DENMARK - JUN 30, 2017
Aroma is licorice, pours pitch black, with a great dark brown head, that disappear rather quickly. Taste is bitter licorice, roasted malt and lots of vanilla. Nice and rounded, not the thickest stout nor the heaviest but well balanced. A bit heavy on the carbonation.

orbit (80) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2017
Very strong taste of almond cookies (biscottis) and also some liquorice, it feels almost like a cough medicin, but then 10 times as strong. I’m kinda in doubt if that’s good, but it doesn’t dissapoint. Very different from other stouts definitely. Give this one a shot!

PhilosophyGuy (682) - Łódź, POLAND - JUN 28, 2017
Barwa czarna, piany prawie w ogóle nie tworzy. W aromacie migdały, kawa, wanilia, lekki alkohol. W smaku raczej słodkie, gładkie, kawowo-waniliowe z muśnięciem migdału, paloności i nutą czekoladową. Wanilia pojawia się również na finiszu. Alkohol początkowo nieco drażni, po chwili jakby ustępuje. Piwo niestety jest lekko przegazowane i odrobinę brakuje mu ciała. Gdyby nie te ostatnie wady byłoby świetnie - tak jest tylko bardzo dobrze.
