Try Denny's 1450 next time. i think it will give you a better mouth feel. I like it better than 1272. I also use pale chocolate as I personally like a less roasty brown. The last one I made I used carabrown malt to get a graham cracker flavor. When mixed with the pale chocolate, it was outstanding.

Turned out real well. There's definitely a flavor in there that can only be the molasses. "rustic"is about the best descriptor I can come up with. I might bump up the bittering a touch and throw in some flameout hops if I were to brew it again but otherwise a tasty brown.

No mouthfeel problems here. Not sure what the above poster is referring to. Though I am thinking about playing with1450 for a few batches.

Your first post asked if anyone saw any potential issues. I just suggested a different yeast based on my experience with brown ales and 1272. You asked for an opinion, so I gave mine.

I care! I've actually started experimenting with brown sugar, hoping to try out molasses, maple syrup, etc. Keep us posted!
