Stouts need some of that roast, otherwise they are porters (lots of debate there that I'm not going to enter). But yea, sure, try it. I haven't used it in a stout, but I have used it in an altbier just for this reason - to avoid the roast flavor.

I FOUND TANGERINES! Sorry didn't mean to yell but I got excited. I picked up five of the best ones I could see. They are the larger variety though. :/ Oh well. I figure I will zest maybe two or three of these. Since they're out of season and the porter is pretty rich already I might need a little extra. I will be doing a vodka/zest infusion. I am going to zest a few of these tonight and add that to ~1.5 oz of vodka, let that sit about two days and dump it right in. Well... maybe I will strain it first. Undecided...

Well I haven't tasted this yet, but I am planning to tonight. I have many doubts about it because the process was just so screwed up and all my numbers were off. Also, it was my first time using citrus and piloncillo and even that was a last minute decision. Wish me luck.

Well I wasn't wrong. This was a very disappointing batch. It was drinkable... I guess. Very dry from the sugar and had a harsh bitterness from the roasted malt. Also was a lot darker than I had hoped. The orange/tangerine flavor was *very* slight but the aroma was a little more prevalent. Not much though. I think next time I will definitely use less roasted malt, and also use wheat instead of barley. In addition, I will use about half the piloncillo and no orange juice. I will add the zest AND extract from four or more tangerines as well. This was a hard one to drink and I doubt it will get better with age. Not a dumper though, so that's definitely a plus. I will try another one in a few weeks or maybe a month or so.

Here is an update. This mellowed out and, although still strong, boozy, and rich, tastes great. It's a sipper, mind you, but it is definitely a very good beer. I will give a good description later tonight.
