Epic & Sparks Imperial Stout (500ml Bottle)
When we decided it was time for another Imperial Stout it wasn’t hard to come to the decision to brew a beer with Adam Sparks, in our opinion Adam is one of the best stout brewers in New Zealand. Team Epic sat down with Adam, and we tasted as many of the local and imported stout as available in the NZ market.
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) or milk sourness. The bitterness is typically medium and often the low sie of that. Imperial stouts are strong and often exceed 8% by volume.
