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 (Imperial Force).

Appearance: Pours a pitch black with a chestnut head that lingers.

Aroma: Smells of roasted malt, almonds, faint vanilla, and espresso coffee.

Taste: Intensely rich, with flavors of dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, and coffee beans.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Well balanced and extremely drinkable. Outstanding, especially considering the price!
