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.

Best batch yet
Second time doing this batch-Added 1 oz Rum and 1 oz Maple syrup pre bottling and let it sit. Months later poured with a beautiful head and the aromas pull you in. During a bottle share one friend thought it was a commercial brew. Best compliment ever!

OK beer but did not bottle condition well...at all
This brew was very easy to make. There wasn't a lot of trub in the boil kettle so it made for an adequate transfer of wort to the fermenter. It was a very aggressive fermentation. The blow off tubing overflowed the cup it was placed in. The beer bottled nicely. After 3 weeks of bottle conditioning, I placed the bottles in the fridge. Only 3 of them were carbonated (very weak). The rest had no carbonation. I used a coconut spiced rum as the additive (did not add to the bottle, added to the beer glass) and it paired great! I may try this again but would use a different yeast. I'm not sure why there was no carbonation in the beer.

Did not come out very good
Very active fermentation as other have said and it did carb but using Kraken Black (usually my favorite rum) made to strong in rum flavor. Might try again with a lighter rum or less Kraken

Great tasting
For my first stout this definitely was the right choice. It has a great mellow flavor with plenty of kick afterwards.

Lost a good amount of beer due to fermentation.
As a lot of other folks have mentioned yes indeed the fermentation is very strong with this one so beware! Make sure to use at least a 2 gallon unlike me who used just a regular 1 gallon jug. Besides that I love the way the color turned out in this beer and will be tasting very soon. I LOVE STOUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love it
Great tasting beer. Instructions are not very clear since your website says it takes 6 weeks but the instructions only show 4 weeks

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.

Very Bummed
This was my third northern brew small batch, the small 1 gallon jugs have no room you lose almost a third of your batch, I lost a little over a Quart from the blow off. Beer was ok has a nice kick I got 5 bottled 12oz beers but never again the rum runner stout. If your not using the small batch kit with the gallon jug and you have a bigger carboy or bucket give it shot you might be happy with the results.

The rum you use is really going to be a personal preference. Go with a rum that you enjoy. Cheers!
Recommendations on the best rum/whiskey to add at bottling?
Rebecca S on Nov 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I added Bacardi Oakheart. Be careful on the measurement. I think I killed my yeast. Beer was delicious but no carbonation.
Since this a stout recipe, would you recommend additional time in a secondary fermentation?
Steve C on Nov 7, 2015

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!
When do you add the rum? And how much?
A shopper on Jul 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can add Rum to taste at bottling time.
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.
