Default New Beglium LOF Cocoa Mole

Does anybody with really ridiculous taste identification know what a clone recipe for this beer would be? If you haven't had it, go get it.

I like this beer a lot! It's also delish on tap. I'm interested in trying something similar at some point, so I'm gonna watch this thread for clues.

It's a damn good beer, wish I would have thought of cloning it when I was drinking it, but if I can find another bottle, I'm going to attempt it. Seems to be a very complex brew.

Straight from NB website:

Quote:
Just the facts Ma'am...
Hops - Target
Malts - Pale, C-80, Chocolate, Dark Chocolate
OG - 22
Fruits/Spice - Cocoa, Chili, Cinnamon
That's a start at least!

And I agree, this is an awesome beer.

It reminded me of a chocolate habanero stout that I had a few years ago with just a little something extra added in. Must be the cinnamon.

OK guys, I'm a noob with less than half-a-dozen brews under my belt, one of you is going to have to dial this one in for me. I'm thirty minutes from the brewery and it's already hard to find in the store.

Okay... so you want the beer, but you don't want to spend the time to figure it out?? I'll give you some hints on recipe, but I'm not going to spend several months trying to get it right.

Like I said before:
Quote:
Hops - Target
Malts - Pale, C-80, Chocolate, Dark Chocolate
OG - 22 Plato
Fruits/Spice - Cocoa, Chili, Cinnamon
OG should be 1.092
If you're extract, you can figure out how much DME/LME you need to get to that gravity. If you're all grain, that's about 18 lbs of pale malt (could be 2-row, could be Maris Otter or what have you).
Based on my fuzzy memory, I would probably start with a half pound each of C80, Pale Chocolate and Chocolate.
For five gallons, start with 1 oz of Target at 60 minutes.
For the spices, well, start with 1/4 ounce of each, some for flavor (20 minutes) and some at flame out.

Or hell, you live close to the brewery, you could just go there and talk to the brewers. Chances are that they are pretty nice and will help you out since it is such a limited release beer. Imitation is flattery, eh? You could also just go there, have it on tap and take notes. Let your palate take you to the recipe.

If you want to keep cloning beers, Designing Great Beers would be a great investment.

Hope that helps a bit!
