Style: American Imperial Stout
Other Notes: Produced and bottled for Evil Twin Brewing at Westbrook Brewing Co., USA. Imperial Stout malt beverage brewed with coffee beans and with natural flavors added
Brewer Description: (from bottle) The Roman Empire had a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ festival food culture, extravagant architecture and spectacular live entertainment. Some might argue the Emperors where 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, clear, confident, arrogant and flamboyant. Forza Imperiale.
