My brew club is brewing this and fermenting it in a 55 gallon rum barrel. You will love this recipe. Please feel free to ask me any questions.

The original recipe took 3rd place at the Topsfeild Fair, and it was my most requested recipe of a beer that I have brewed.

The club brew in the Rum barrel came out excellent as well. It was great enough for me to start experimenting with oak chips in the fermentor. You won't be disappointed at all with this beer. Just remember patience is your friend. Its a big beer and needs time and a cool place to age proper.

Best of luck! I have to say I have this on Beer gas with a stout faucet, and the kegs are over 2 years old. I just tapped another one and it just keeps getting better with age. I would suggest taking some oak chips and soak them in rum and rack it on the oak chips for a week or so after its fermented and keg it and forget about it for a few years.

It smells like a brandy almost and it silky smooth. Age is your friend =)
This pic is a rum barrel from a distillery in Rhode Island, we bought it right after they emptied it and filled it with 45 gallons or so.

Wonderful! I run nitro on the kegerator and have a stout faucet. Should be beautiful. My father in law wants an imperial stout that we can add espresso to. I want to make something to age on bourbon-soaked oak cubes. I figure that making a 6g batch split into 2 5 gallon carboys should give us the opportunity to do both.

I've gone the espresso route before, I chilled the wort to 160 degree's and floated freshly ground espresso in a nylon stocking (wife was ripping lolz) for 5 minutes, then pulled it and chilled the rest of the way down. After fermentation, I used potassium sorbate in the keg and poured 1/4 cup of Kahlua in to give it a nice kick. That was a nice flavored coffee n cream stout.
