The beer is FANTASTIC!
One of my best brews- first AG without a friend ( much more experienced friend that works at the homebrew shop) helping me. I must have a great teacher. :-D

I used regular chocolate and my temps hit a little high but it is such a full, flavorful beer that I would not change anything. I ended up priming with DME and have a good beer after only 2 weeks in bottle. It did sit for a LONG stay in the Secondary though. Five months. :-D
Life happens. But, I did what I was supposed to do. I got the bottles out. Said a prayer. Scooped off something that looked bad on the top and Relaxed and HAHB. Thanks SouthBay for an awesome recipe.

So, I'll continue to play around with the recipe to make a more authentic clone, but all in all, i'm happy with it as it is as an imperial sweet stout.

Plus, i'm glad you like the recipe!
I liked the "make-it-your-own" quote. How about calling it "Gold Sluice Imperial Red" with a nod to its SF incarnation.
