I dump mine too, unless I have made a small beer as a really big starter.  Then I carb and drink it ;)

I'm a dumper from way back.  ;)

It's oxidized beer and won't be worth keeping anyway.

Good to know.  I have never tried drinking it I was just wondering if it woulds be any good.  Looks like the consensus is no.  I will just dump it. 
Also, I would like to use crystal 120 or extra dark crystal, but I do not have any and I am planning on brewing this tomorrow.  Unfortunately crystal 40 is the darkest I have so that is what I plan on using.  My options are crystal 40, crystal 20, or order some crystal 120 (since my closest brew store is a 2+ hour drive each way) and brew next weekend, which I am not fond of.

The only thing I would add is to dump the brown sugar.  the first few times I brewed Imperial stouts I used brown sugar and there was always a lingering taste of molasses that bothered me.  Use demerara IF you really feel the need to add sugar.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Bottle it to serve to the annoying neighbor that keeps drinking all your beer.
