I've only had the RIS and it was very good.

Soon you'll have so much beer from trading you need to set up a tasting.



This isn't even all the imperial stouts for the tasting.

North Coast Old Rasputin XII Anniversary*
Smuttynose Imperial Stout (2009)*
Terrapin The Dark Side*
Bell's Batch 9000
Founder's Kentucky Breakfast Stout (2010)

*= I got it locally, everything else I traded for.

Let me know if you have a hook up for Dark Lord. I can't get it anywhere.
I've still got a ton of other stuff from trades but I don't have such a concentrated selection like that. Thats awesome and imperial stouts are my bread and butter!

There are about 70 other bottles in my cellar that aren't stouts and I've traded for a good number of them. I don't have a Dark Lord 2010 lined up yet, if I can get one me and a friend will be doing a 07-10 vertical.

I love imperial stouts, as does my wife. The other half of the tasting includes more run of the mill stouts (Ten Fidy, Terrapin Wake-and-Bake, Founders Imperial Stout) as well as some more rare bottles like Surly Darkness, Alesmith Speedway Stout, FiftyFifty Eclipse, Bell's Batch 7000, and maybe a Midnight Sun imperial stout (not M, unfortunately.)
