Imperial Stout



Imperial stouts are usually extremely dark brown to black in color with flavors that are intensely malty, deeply roasted and sometimes with accents of dark fruit (raisin, fig) and chocolate. The bitterness is typically low to moderate. Imperial stouts are strong and generally exceed 8% ABV.

Premium members can view the top 50 in each style category. Nonpremium members will be able to see the top 25.
