What could be better than The 15 Best Pastry Stouts of 2022 or the 10 Best Imperial / Double Stouts of 2022

Probably if we put the two together!

Imperial / Double Pastry Stouts combine the best of both worlds. 

Take a pastry stout, considered a stout brewed with plenty of sugary ingredients to be intentionally sweet, and bump up the ABV. 

These are over-the-top beers in every sense of the word often overloaded with adjuncts to taste like popular candy bars, traditional cakes and pies, even nostalgic cereals. 

It wouldn't be uncommon to find Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, maple syrup, coconut truffles, German chocolate cake, and everything in between in these beers. 

And with ABVs often rising above nine percent, Imperial / Double Pastry Stouts should be considered decadent treats best shared with others. 

Happy indulging!
