Default Imperial Stout - need solid recipe

I want to do a big stout. I was considering ordering the AHS Cannon Ball Stout. But then I was reading the reviews about the Russian Imperial Stout recipe posted by marubozo (

Anyone have experience with these and can comment on how good they are? Anything you'd change about either? I'll be doing an all-grain batch. Thanks.

On Deck:
Bottle conditioning / Ageing: Bourbon-Oaked Vanilla Porter
Consuming: Black IPA, Stone Vertical Epic 08.08.08 clone, EdWort's Apfelwein, English Barleywine, Sweet Mead
Batches in 2011

Check the stout forum in the recipe database. BrewPastor's Dark Night of the Soul, and another, called Double-W (too lazy to look for the author). I've brewed Dark Night, and it's delicious! Double-W is inspired by DN, and looks pretty good.

Primary: Norwegian Farmhouse Ale

Kegged: Bohemian Pilsner; Altbier; Vienna lager; Schwarzbier; Citra/Calipso IPL; Dry Stout

Bottled: Grodziskie; Sterling Patersbier (homegrown); Mosaic Session Brett; Saison Americain; Session Saison
