Default All-Grain - Russian Imperial Stout

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Recipe Type: All Grain Yeast: S-04 Yeast Starter: No Additional Yeast or Yea
Yeast Starter: 2-Quart
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.080
Final Gravity: 1.019
IBU: 91
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Color: 46
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 @ 64F
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 @ 60F (if desired)
Tasting Notes: Perfect for the style and super clean. Has a slightly noticeable alcohol aroma.

This beer won me 3rd out of 16 at my local HomeBrew competition here in Frederick, with guest judging from a Flying Dog brewer. It was deemed perfect for the style, super clean, but young, which was the only bad thing about it. It had only been in bottle for 3 months at that point. I recommend 6 months of aging at least.

12.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row)
1.50 lb Amber Malt
1.50 lb Crystal-60
1.00 lb Carafoam
0.50 lb Black (Patent) Malt (500.0 SRM)
0.50 lb Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM)
0.50 lb Roasted Barley (300.0 SRM)
1.50 oz Chinook [11.40%] (90 min) 70.6 IBU
1.50 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00%] (30 min) 15.8 IBU
1.50 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00%] (1 min) 5.2 IBU
1 Pkgs London Ale (Wyeast Labs #1028)

Single Infusion mash @ 154F for 90 minutes.



This beer was obviously un-fined, as I didn't feel the need to because of how dark it is. Notice the bits of yeasties floating in the glass.

I am considering making a imperial stout for this Christmas, and I had come up with the same dark malt schedule you have, except only 4oz of Black Patent. Personally, I don't mind big aggressive beers, but the beer is not for me.

So I'm wondering, did this one come out with a lot of bitterness from the dark malts? I'm trying to make it big, but as smooth as possible too.
