I racked to secondary after 4 days because of the airlock explosion... its been about a week since then so I decided its time to bottle. My belgiun wit and dunkel are brewing now so I needed my second primary.

I gotta tell ya... I'm impressed with how it tases right from the get go!! Nice flavor, nice armona, great finishing taste. After a few weeks in the bottle these will be cherry! IDK if its gonna be a repeat though... my coffee stout and this oatmeal stout absolutely ROCK.

OG 1.072 - FG 1.016
Percent Alcohol By Volume (ABV): 7.75%

I'll keep ya informed!

Found them? In Mercea. The coconut's tropical!
ARTHUR
What do you mean?
SOLDIER
Well, this is a temperate zone.
ARTHUR
The swallow may fly south with the sun, or the house martin
or the plover seek warmer hot lands in winter, yet these are
not strangers to our land.
SOLDIER
Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?
ARTHUR
Not at all. They could be carried.
SOLDIER
What? A swallow carrying a coconut?
ARTHUR
Why not?
SOLDIER
I'll tell you why not ... because a swallow is about eight inches long and weighs five ounces, and you'd be lucky to find a coconut under a pound.
ARTHUR
It could grip it by the husk ...
SOLDIER
It's not a question of where he grips it, It's a simple matter of weight - ratios ... A five-ounce bird could not hold a a one pound coconut.
ARTHUR
Well, it doesn't matter. Go and tell your master that Arthur from the Court of Camelot is here.
SOLDIER
Look! To maintain Velocity, a swallow needs to beat its wings four hundred and ninety three times every second. right?

ARTHUR
(irritated)
Please!
SOLDIER
Am I right?
ARTHUR
I'm not interested.
SECOND SOLDIER
(who has loomed up on the battlements)
It could be carried by an African swallow!
FIRST SOLDIER
Oh yes! An African swallow maybe ... but not a European swallow. that's my point.
SECOND SOLDIER
Oh yes, I agree there ...
ARTHUR
(losing patience)
Will you ask your master if he wants to join the Knights of Camelot?!
FIRST SOLDIER
But then of course African swallows are non-migratory.
SECOND SOLDIER
Oh yes.
FIRST SOLDIER
So they wouldn't be able to bring a coconut back anyway.
SECOND SOLDIER
Wait a minute! Suppose two swallows carried it together?
FIRST SOLDIER
No, they'd have to have it on a line.
Stillness. Silence again.

I got impatient and tried one of the Stouts. It still needs A LOT of aging, but its nice. I can definitly taste the alcohol which I really wasnt going for. After the alcohol taste peels away, I notice the dark chocolate flavor, then a roasted grain/nut flavor, and the beer finishs off with a nice bitter hop. I'm almost tempted to say these would be better warm, and you gotta drink it slow to get all the flavors. Its real heavy so the different tastes develop slowly... over id say 30-45 seconds. My stomache is warm like I just did a shot of whiskey, LOL....
