sweet. I too may make this since I'll have to miss out on the real thing this year. A 3G batch would be good.

My friends and I made pretty much this a while back and aged it in a bourbon barrel with vanilla beans. Having had DL, this recipe tastes nothing like it. It's a good beer, not a great one with actually very little stout characteristic at all. I would think of it more as a Strong Ale. DL is so much thicker and sweeter, this has nowhere near that body. That said, DL isn't really that great to begin with.

For those looking for a different beer to brew, try it out, but don't expect a stout and certainly don't expect anything like DL.

Just wondering how this turned out? Do you still have any aging?

Another bump looking for updates. Obviously bringing back a thread this old is an attempt to hear if the aging is still continuing to mellow/improve.

I've only got a few bottles of this left but I've never had the chance to do a side by side with a Dark Lord. I haven't had one in over a year since I only have bombers left and its a big ass beer! If someone could donate a Dark Lord 2009 or previous (since 2010s are now 15%) I would be happy to compare!

That's like asking Fatty to give up his burger

Curious as to how you did your mash. Did you steep anything? Or did you mash all your grains - base, roasted, carmels, etc - all at the same time with a 1.5qt/# ratio? Or something entirely different?

I just tried an RIS cold steeping my roasted grains and it was lame.
