After patiently letting this beer sit in the secondary for four months, I just finished bottleing my imperial stout from Northern Brewer. The only thing I changed about the recipe was I added 1 bottle of pure maple syrup. The maple flavor is barely noticeable, but otherwise it tastes awesome. This may be the most excited I have been about a beer so far. It will be a test of my willpower to let this sit in the bottle for a while.
