I've had a large variety of stouts from all over the planet. I would consider myself to be picky about the style, as I am most typically an ale drinker. However, this is the best stout I've ever brewed. Hands down. Quite possibly the best stout I've ever drank. Seriously! This, of course, is just my humble opinion. Try it yourself and tell me I'm wrong. This beer has the bold flavors of a Russian Imperial, with the 'drinkability' of a regular stout. A sessionable RIS. Haha. Still plenty of body though. If you want to push the abv% more toward Imperial territory, add a little corn sugar. It doesn't suffer in the least. Also, I aged this on toasted oak cubes soaked in Maker's Mark Whiskey, then let it sit in bottles for about 8 months before I cracked one open. This gave it a nice 'aged in a whiskey barrel' effect. Not that it really needs any more flavor... Note that serving temp really matters with this beer. The warmer it gets the more it 'opens' up. When cold, the prominent flavors are dark chocolate and roasty. Which is good and very tasty, but as it warms in the glass the flavor blossoms into coffee, tobacco, prune/raisin, with the dark chocolate and roasty flavors fading more toward the background. Of course mine had the oak/whiskey thing going on in there too, which is actually quite complimentary if you get the balace right. It really is a lovely beer. Fantastic recipe. Friends and family loved this. I've brewed it 3 times and I certainly will again as I'm down to only a few bottles. A+ to Adventures in Homebrewing. Were it my recipe, I likely wouldn't share it. Haha. Thanks!
