No worries in fact I am mainly replying again to THANK YOU for the awesome recipe. I got my score sheets back from Suwannee Beer Fest homebrew comp. and I won two medals with this batch. I got 3rd place in the RIS category with a 33.5 combined, and 2nd Place in the Speciality beer category with a 40 combined. Even with my modified sugar additions this beer is AWESOME.
Congrats man!

Glad you/judges enjoy it!

I brewed this up this past Sunday for a friend of mine. He is having a release party for his "comic" book that he's writing and wanted something dark and complex to serve. This is what we decided on and it is looking fantastic! It is five days in the fermenter and still chopping away at that 1.095 OG.

Can't wait to try it out.

Had a taste of this while transferring it to secondary. It was wonderfully smooth, slight bitterness, and nice warming sensation from the 9.1%. We added four cups of espresso brewed with a regular coffee brewer. Less than a week 'till bottling.

Be careful...the more you drink, the closer the floor approaches your face

I'm actually planning on brewing some more of this (most of this batch is going to "charity") when my newborn twins decide to give me some time and money for it. My artist friend is also making a label for it. I'll post a picture of it when it is done.

Thanks for such an amazing recipe, Tuck.

Looking forward to brewing this again! Last years batch turned out amazingly, especially since it was an extract and my 3rd brew ever. This time ill be doing the AG version, and hoping to get closer to 9-10% ABV. Absolutely cannot wait to sit by the fireplace and savor a couple of these with friends and family this winter. This ones definitely going to be a yearly brew for me. Thanks again Tuck!

Forgot to ask... What temp is everyone mashing at? Are you adding the entire grain bill up front or adding the dark grains later to prevent tannin extraction?

Im thinking around 154, but not sure so any info is appreciated. Thanks!
