When I see the words "imperial" and "stout" together, I cringe. Even the ever-popular KBS just isn't for me. I don't like the perceived residual sweetness of them.
That said, I have a couple friends who have been harassing me to make one. Any advice on how to do an extract or mini-mash/steep imperial stout that I can stomach or am I just looking for something that is way outside the style guidelines?
