Product Details

The days of the rum runner are long gone, but this bold Imperial stout bears their standard. Full-proof, never watered-down, the Runner delivers roasty espresso complemented with citrusy American hops and a fierce alcohol bite. It’s a perfect background for additions of rum or whiskey, pre- or post-bottling. English ale yeast ensures notes of fruit to contrast the aggressive dark chocolate character and ensure a dry finish.

So excited about this beer...
and I just bottled it. Its not even officially "ready" yet! Flavors were so good in the taste test! I see a lot of comments about the fermentation. I did this in a 2 gallon plastic pail I initially bought for small batch wine and it worked perfectly. It did not overflow or hit to top of the lid.

Perfect - one of my best brews
I doubled up and did a 2 gallon batch. I added 50ml (about a shot) of Craigellachie Scotch in before bottling. It has a thick body and very full and complex flavor. It's a sipping beer. Letting it age for a few months in the bottle at cellar temperature helped balance out the flavor without losing body. It tastes chocolately and woody with a coffee note and a pleasant bite on the end.As a warning, use blow off tubes on your primary. I used the Wyeast and the fermentation is aggressive!I hope they release this in a 5 gallon all-grain offering soon. I'd love to repeat this at a larger scale!

Be prepared for vigorous fermentation.
I fermented this one in a three-gallon fermenter. Not the least bit sorry that I did, for I did not lose one precious drop of this noble elixir. This stout proved to be very popular with a house guest who is picky about stouts. I did squirrel away a couple of bottles to drink in a few months because it will age well.

great beer
I ordered this recipe for my husband and he couldn't believe how good it came out. The fermentation was wild and fun to make. We will order again. We got about 6 bottles - about one bottle lost in fermentation, one bottle popped while capping :(, so had 4 left over. it was great though and cant wait to brew again.Nice head, but didnt last long enough. 8.25%

fermenting
I used a Mr Beer fermenter. The foam was 3-4 thick within 20 hours and dissipated within another 24 hours.I cannot wait to try it!!

more booze
Upon calculating the abv with Brewer's Friend app, it was 8.25%. Sorry about the confusion in an earlier review.

thick and wonderful
Used a 3 gal fermenter after reading the reviews about blowing potential, glad I was able to save every drop. Followed fermentation and bottling schedule per the instructions, then let it sit under my stairwell for 2 months to age and tried it last night. Amazingly delicious! The extra time helped smooth it out. Thick tan head and almost black color, smells sweet, creamy almost oily mouthfeel, felt a bit boozy but only 5.5 ish abv. Already bought another kit to use as a base for a coffee stout. Now knowing how good it is, it'll take a lot of self control to not drink the 2nd batch too soon.

Since this a stout recipe, would you recommend additional time in a secondary fermentation?
D S on Nov 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hey Steve

Thanks for writing! If you follow the provided instructions

the beer should turn out great! Secondary

for the most part is to clear cosmetic issues in beer

like allowing the yeast to flocculate out of suspension. A lot of guys don't even rack a stout to secondary since they are fairly turbid beers. Others on the other hand will let them sit a bit to let the astringency mellow. Realistically

you want that astringency in a stout to stay in my opinion. Hope this helps!
I bought this kit several years ago and still have a keeper in the fridge. I want to make a bigger batch. What is/are the steeping grain and how much? thanks - Ken
K E on Aug 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The specialty grain blend for this kit includes 4 oz. of Belgian Special B and 2 oz. of English Roasted Barley.
Just brewed it. Checked the OG 3 different times with refractometer, and got 1.093 - even though I used a little more water than called for. Worried that might be too high for the S-04 which supposedly has alcohol tolerance around 8%. Anyone able to provide info on their FG, and whether or not they had any trouble?
K W on Jan 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That does seem oddly high, but that yeast should be fine, especially for a one-gallon kit, as there will be plenty of yeast to do the job. The yeast would not begin to have a problem until the alcohol reached 8 or so percent, and it would be "done" anyways by then. I'd not worry about it. You might expect a final gravity near 1.025, with that high of an OG.
Recommendations on the best rum/whiskey to add at bottling?
