Default Russian Imperial Stout

So, I was looking around for a good AG stout recipe, and stumbled upon the following:
- 15 lbs Maris Otter
- 1 lb crystal malt
- 1 lb chocolate malt
- 1 lb roasted barley
- 1 oz Chinook hops

I cooked this up over the weekend, and ended up with a primary full of the darkest, blackest beer I've ever created. With 18 lbs of grain, I think I may be able to stand a fork in it.

Anyone else have a good AG Stout recipe?

I love this recipe. I've made a few big stouts and at first I played around with changing the amount of chocolate or RB by a few ounces, then it occurred to me that when your OG is that high, most people including myself probably can't detect the difference in flavor contributed by a few ounces. Keep it simple and it will be awesome.

It is more of an Imperial American Stout, but is the definition of AWESOME.

My standard recipe goes like this:
10lb 2-row
2lb munich
2lb flaked oats
1lb roasted barley
1lb chocolate
1lb c120
2oz cascade 60'
2oz cascade 15'
2oz cascade 0'
wlp001

OG=1.090
IBU=90
