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.

AWISLguy (2652) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Bomber from Discount in Waukesha shared by ck1 and my other brother. Pours an inky black with a brownish head. Aroma has liquid chocolate, sweet malts and licorice. Taste is of super sweet chocolate, caramel, some roast and vanilla. Bourbon gets stronger through the glass. Very smooth. Finishes sweetly smoothly choco/vanilla. Very smooth and nice. A hair less alcohol and it would be wonderful. ck1 says 15.

From a can. So thick, smooth and rich, the sweet biscuit and cocoa flavours are balanced with dark chocolate bitterness, awesome stuff.

Oly (64) - Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - DEC 3, 2016
Dark black with thick tan head. Wonderful aroma of vanilla and sweet malt. Taste had a great balance of sweet vanilla and malt with mild bitterness of roasted coffee. I didnt pick up much of the almond, but overall great beer.

jgb9348 (5816) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2016
Deep dark brown coloured body with a smallish, two centimetre tall off-white head that fades relatively fast Aroma of alcohol, toasted malt, pure caster sugar, grain and a good amount of crazily enough - cookies! Full-bodied; Roasted malt flavours up front with a good deal of coffee, earth, caramelised sugars and a big dose of light chocolate - fairly low on the cacao side. Aftertaste is full on malt, alcohol and sweetness, with only a touch of grain coming through and no real complexities. Overall, a good beer, but only a mediocre imperial stout, given its simplistic flavour and non-complexities throughout. Nice to sample and the alcohol is VERY well hidden, but this one is not as good as it seems from the rating, due to the label on the front, sadly enough. I sampled this 50 cL can purchased from Whole Foods in New York (Chelsea), New York last night on 01-December-2016 for US$2,99 sampled at my hotel here in Chelsea, New York, New York on 02-December-2016, for a very good price for an Imperial Stout at this size, in New York.

AdolfoCC (204) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - NOV 28, 2016
APARIENCIA: de color negro, no pasa la luz a travs de ella; corona de espuma color marrn, de mediana a baja retencin, con burbujas compactas y algunos alcohol legs en la copa. AROMA: predomina notablemente el caf, como cold brew/preparado en fro o una taza de caf americano por la maana, nueces, almendras, chocolate semidulce como una barra de Hersheys, azcar morena, en menor medida la vainilla. SABOR: difcil describirla exactamente porque sabe a todo menos a cerveza, es ms una experiencia; nuevamente el caf predomina, recuerda a una taza de caf negro por la maana, ligera acidez por el tostado de los granos que no llega a ser astringente, atrs azcar morena, vainilla, nueces, almendras y en menor medida chocolate semidulce como una barra de chocolate Hersheys, todo bien balanceado, todos los sabores se aprecian y no llega a ser empalagosa. En el retrogusto queda un amargor medio ligero con persistencia del sabor a caf y almendras. SENSACIN: cuerpo medio con ligera sensacin sedosa en boca, baja carbonatacin. El alcohol no llega a percibirse en ningn momento. RESUMEN: excelente cerveza, es una deconstruccin gastronmica.

Mugdiller (11) - Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2016
Aroma - caramelized sugar, licorice, raisins, prune, cherry, alcohol, spice, and chocolate. Appearance - the body is black, and the head is a sandy brown and about 1 1/4" and slowly fades. Alcohol cloying Taste - rich full malt, sweet with chocolate, almond, brown sugar, caramelized sugar, raisins, and slight prune and spices. There is a little anisette and bold alcohol. Palate - full body, slick feel a little thin, average carbonation, rich and sugary with astringent alcohol. Tap at Hop Cats Detroit. Nice head slow exit, little swirl- back again. Wow taste like a slice of carmelized raisin, nutty, spicy, did I mention reduced brown sugar? Southern pie, with a touch of fiestieness. Nice.

jaghana (5600) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - NOV 26, 2016
Bottle 75cl, a dark beer with medium brown head. Nose is sweet like with roasted caramel and coffee. Aroma is intense on chocolate, caramel, biscuit, smooth body, lot of licorice and vanilla notes, van houten type of chocolate, creamy, exceptional brew. Long roasted aftertaste, bit of soy sauce.

fiery_1 (352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 24, 2016
473ml can @ home. Pours opaque black with a moderate brown head. Nose is roasted malts and some coffee. Flavour is quite rich, there is an overall bitterness, but theres much more dancing around that keeping the sweetness in check. Almonds, some vanilla, dark chocolate, espresso. A tasty treat that I could back for more. Full-bodied and a thick mouthfeel.

From a can into a pint glass. Very thick, dark brown, nice tan head. Nose is all chocolate and vanilla, some coffee, really nice. Thick full body, low carbonation. Not too sweet, nice chocolate bitterness to level off the sugar. Great beer.
