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.

An imperial version of an 8.4% original? Wow. Sloppy seconds from TURDFERGUSON. Thick, oily black pour with a tan head. Nose is big coffee, toasted nuts, vanilla, and chocolate. Flavor is sweet. Palate is super rich. Great beer.

ABS (989) - Stokke, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2017
Can from, at and shared with Rickfifty. Nice to enjoy an Evil Twin Imperial * Break together again! Pours black with a dark brown hue. Close to no head. Marzipan, alcohol, fruit nose. Some cherry, Maraschino cherry. Roasted malt, vanilla, almonds, marzipan flavour. Quite a lot of others as well, complex. Quite sweet, some bitterness. Thick, oily body. Medium, fizzy carbonation. Very good, would definitly buy some if I could get my hands on some more cans! Thanks for saving half a can for me, Rick!

shawnmurphy (59) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - FEB 22, 2017
Large can poured briskly into glass. Nearly opaque black color with just a hint of red when held up to bright light. One-inch tan foamy head. Some lacing. Aroma: black coffee, chocolate chip cookie dough, hazelnuts. Flavor: espresso, milk chocolate, vanilla beans, Frangelico, smoked black patent malt. Intense sweetness throughout and lingering, which was too cloyingly sweet for my taste buds. Mouthfeel is silky, smooth.

Marrone scuro, velata, schiuma beige finissima e persistente.aroma intenso fruttato, frutta secca, mandorla e nocciole, tostato, caff solubile e cacao amaro, pastafrolla e zucchero di canna. Leggermente di vaniglia/ burro fuso. Dolce amabile , lievemente tostata, acidula, poco luppolata, amaro prevalentemente da tostatura. Corposa, molto calda, vellutata/oleosa, non molto carbonata. Non del tutto equilibrata ma nel complesso armonica.

beer_queue (124) - California, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Coffee, brown sugar, & roasted malt aromas up front with vanilla & almonds very much in the background. Arrives with coffee sweetened with brown sugar or honey. Develops into a light, sweet almond note similar to amaretto. Ends on roasted malt, milk chocolate, vanilla, and a small kick of booze; lingering notes of coffee & vanilla in aftertaste. Full, slick body with medium carb. Really awesome flavored imperial stout, but it leans a bit on the dessert side. After warming up, amaretto notes start to take over while still offering an additional dark fruit note in aroma & taste. Coming towards room temp, it shows off more of the chocolate note. Very complex!

Pint can from Wine Warehouse. Pours nearly black with an inch of brown head. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, caramel, somewhat sweet smelling. Flavor is sweet vanilla, caramel, chocolate, coconut, and coconut milk. A hint of back-end booze, which after the past two weeks I dont mind - in fact I welcome some alcohol.
