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.

Jury still out......

This is my first stout and first imperial version so am anxiously awaiting my first taste. I just bottled it and it has about 10 days of bottle conditioning yet to go. I did not let it condition in the secondary for the entire recommended time. I have a concern of it sitting on the trub for that long. I did about 8 weeks and then bottled. Will find out if that was the correct decision or not. Will get back to this review at 6 months and again at a year to update on taste, but I'm looking forward to this one.

Split the wort into 1 and 4 gallon fermenters.

Bottled the 1 gallon soon after fermentation ceased. Left the 4 gallon on the yeast cake for a couple of months before kegging and force carbonating. Being a noob, I would attribute the different tastes between the two beers to the reduction of acetaldehyde in the 4 gallon batch due to extended yeast cake contact. Will leave my later brews on the yeast cake now, as a matter of taste.

Best beer I've made

I added some Kona coffee and cocoa to the wort and it's hands down the best beer I've ever made. I attribute this 100% to the fact that this is a very solid kit right out of the box. I am absolutely ordering this again. Highly recommend.
