On November 25 Epic Brewing released their first Imperial Stout. Twenty days later the second release of one of their newest beers is already in the tank.
For Batch #2 of the Impy Stout, the grain bill was "Upped" with more roasted and dark malts. Which works for me. Stouts of this gravity need all the dimensions they can get. The Hop bill has also been modified with increased Nugget and Chinook hops.
Last year at this time there were no Impy Stouts, now there are three. Squatters Outer Darkness, Epic's Imperial Stouts and I'm counting Uinta's Labyrinth as an Impy even though it's labeled as a black ale.
I've created a new poll to see who is the local Impy King thus far. No cheating! If you haven't tried them all yet, you have two weeks to get your shit together and vote.
