    I have ended up with this FWK from All Inn Brewing a couple of months ago. Interestingly, it's not on their website any more - maybe discontinued now. But here's a description:

    "Widowed Butcher is a spectacular Russian Imperial Stout. Formidable but with real richness behind that deadly edge. Hints of dark fruit, subtle spice and just a little malice. With a starting gravity of 1072 (at 20 litres), the WIDOW is going to end up at well over 8% ABV. Malt: Ale Biscuit, Brown, Crystal, Chocolate, roasted
    Barley. Hops: Magnum, Warrior, Chinnook. Current IBU: 50"

    I have quite a bit of Imperial stout already bottled so thinking of doing something different with this. Any thoughts on adding maybe 250g lactose and maybe 5L water to make a bit of a milk stout, maybe with some dry hopping which I've read about in Brewing Classic Styles for RIS but not tried yet...
