Product details

A strong, pitch black beer with tan head, resounding with burnt, bitter chocolate character, hops, syrupy malt, and a warming alcohol note. A nice companion on a cold winter night or accompanying chocolate dessert.

Imperial stouts were first brewed in England for export to the royal courts of the Russian Tsars. The Tsars are gone but the beer remains, the "War and Peace" of stouts. This kit yields a pitch black beer with tan head, resounding with burnt, bitter chocolate character, hops, and syrupy malt. A viscous, chewy body finishing with lots of roast grain and a warming alcohol note. A nice companion on a cold winter night or accompanying chocolate dessert.

Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results.

Customer Service is fantastic

I had the misfortune of using the yeast in my batch of Imperial Stout incorrectly and Mike replaced it. Then, while in the secondary, it grew yeast because of the large volume of air in the carboy. I was appreciative of his help.

Looks good

It’s in week 3 of fermentation but looks good so far!

A Fantastic Stout!

Usually an every two year brew because it needs to sit in the secondary so long to mellow out the alcohol burn. I like to plan on 5 to 6 months in the secondary. Everyone loves it when the keg is tapped! Not a malty stout. In fact, it is surprisingly easy to drink given the dark color and alcohol content. You won't be disappointed.

Great Mouthfeel

Next to the Brunch Stout from NB, this is my favorite. Nice heavy stout to be enjoyed at room temperature. Wonderful in the cooler months.
