Look at any online trade forum and you’ll find hundreds of stouts that people are "in search of," but those who are looking for a world class stout don’t need to look that hard or that far.
With November’s transition into winter, these dark roasty flavors just seem right; the higher ABV of an Imperial is welcomed on a cold night, too.
When I created my recipe, I focused on the more robust flavors that I appreciate in the style.
If they advertised or marketed this beer based on the hops, which are nowhere to be found on the label or the case, this may be a more popular beer.
This can actually be a category full of variance among the beers in the same style and so we’re exciting to see what this month brings us.

We continue our series with the spicy Rye IPA and the sometimes angry but always delicious, Red IPA.
