Yeah, probably a lot of your haze is chill haze...no effect at all on flavor.
And I agree...you shouldn't need to use finings on dark beer. I never use finings on any beers, but stouts and porters really don't need them.
Just my opinion. It's a combination of laziness and not wanting to add unnecessary ingredients (like fish bladders) to my beer. Cheers!
Oh don't give me none more of that Old Janx Spirit
No, don't you give me none more of that Old Janx Spirit
For my head will fly, my tongue will lie, my eyes will fry and I may die
Won't you pour me one more of that sinful Old Janx Spirit
