Imperial Stout (212)
This style is also known as Russian Imperial Stout because these beers were originally brewed by England for export to Russia as they were popular with the imperial court there. Now, this style is very popular among American brewers who have built on the style. The colour ranges from dark brown to jet-black. These beers are very rich and complex. The flavours typically include roasted chocolate, cocoa, and/or coffee and can have hints of caramel and/or toasty flavours. Dark fruit flavours can range from non-existant to very strong. Hop flavour is usually moderate to high with high levels of hop bitterness. American versions tend to be more heavily hopped. Alcohol flavour and warming are usually present. The mouthfeel is usually very thick and creamy. The ABV ranges from 8-13+% and the IBUs from 50-100+.
