Great beer
This beer aged incredibly. I think it really became a great beer after 8-9 months in the bottle. On many occasions when going to friends houses I have been asked “Do you have any of that stout left? Can you bring some?” I brewed the mini mash following the instructions.

This one fermented like wild and I probably lost a six pack worth out of my blow off tube. Might have had to do with the heat wave we were having, but wow! A month after bottling it is a great stout, but damn strong. If you like a strong sipping stout this is a good one. Some people have been overpowered by it though. I am going to shelf it and crack it open this winter.

Really good beer, very dark! I used alcohol boost as well. I did make a starter and had no problems.... (ps they are easy if u haven't done em... little spring water, some of lme/dme, yeast.. place in sanitized juice bottle with hole drilled into top for airlock... 24 hrs later....YEAST!) anyways. mine has been bottle for 4 months now and does need a little more time..... But i'm still drinking it for now... Maybe could use a tad bit more priming sugar (1/5 more?) and maybe something for head retention... Another great beer!

Only the 4th beer i've homebrewed. Very good taste. I used the alcohol boost and it has been bottled 4 months now. Everyone who likes stouts that has tried it likes it alot! My only fault was that i didn't use a starter on yeast and i believe thats why beer doesn't form a good head when poured. I may try another batch and make starter. It does for a head but not big and only holds for small time.... like i said prolly my fault. Otherwise very good taste and I would definately recommend for those looking for a great tasting BIG beer!... none of those low calorie drinkers allowed!

I have made several AHS recipes and haven't been disappointed yet. This is a big beer. Just opened a bottle today after about 1 month after bottling it's a great example of an imperial stout. Big flavor, a bit of an alcohol taste to it but not out of style. I like this a lot and will be enjoying it as the weather turns cooler.

Brewed this about 3 months ago; 4 weeks in primary and bottled from there. Added about 10 OZ cane sugar and 10 OZ of "generic" honey in the boil; about 2 OZ honey at bottling. Added 1/2 OZ extra of bittering hops to boil to offset additional fermentables. Came out at 8.5%. Tasted after 6 weeks, pouring high to generate head, which stayed for a long time. Could not get over how good this beer is--incredibly rich and complex, but not too sweet. Typical smell of WLP002, but less than at bottling. Chocolate, coffee, roasted nuts, creamy. Honestly struggled to finish one 12 OZ bottle and I have a high steady state alcohol level in my bloodstream :)). This is a frikin' BIG BEER, winter wonderland of a stout. This will be STELLAR at Christmas. Highly recommend but be patient--at least 2-3 weeks primary and a couple in secondary if you choose to do that. I don't

Even with a blow off tube, I had to scrub some of this beer off my walls a few days into fermentation. Definitely be prepared for some serious action. After about 4 months in the bottle, this is a hefty and delicious stout. I used the 1% alcohol boost to give it a bit of an extra kick. There is a noticeable alcohol aroma and taste, but it fits the beer nicely. A delightful little extra I've discovered: Put about 12 ounces of this stout in a chili, and simmer for 6 hours or so. The result is incredible!

UPDATE: Christmas 2011. Well, this has been in the bottle about 8-9 months and gets better with age, no question; the yeast / bready nose has decreased substantially in favor of the chocolate, brown sugar, coffee notes. Drinks much easier now that the flavors and richness have settled down. Can't recommend this enough, although I would definitely add some additional bittering hops

Man, this is so good. Left about 3 or 4 weeks in primary (can't remember exactly) and straight to the keg. A couple of weeks after that it tasted great. Nice thick head, full of body, and exactly what I want from an imperial stout. It's only getting better with age, but sadly it's not going to last much longer. This is going to be in the regular rotation.

This was so good. I did mini mash, one week in primary, one week in secondary before bottling. Like others I lost about a quart from fermentation blowoff in primary. I will definitely make this again, but decrease the added primary water by a quart and make it up in secondary. 4 weeks in the bottle and it just keeps getting better. Setting some aside for special occasions.
