Mine came out with Chocolate/coffee notes, not really too much sweetness. the wort tasted pretty much the same pre- and post-fermentation. I've only sampled it once since I bottled and that was about 4 days in so not very carbed at all. I am not experienced enough to help you identify your issue though.

My first batch was originally sweety and boozy but mellows nicely with time, let it sit a month or two.

Hopefully that's the case for mine, too. Since it was my first brew on my new system, I was worried I just screwed something up somewhere.

With that said, I just took a sample of a Rye IPA before I dry hopped with Cascade. This is the second brew on that new system and it tastes excellent. I'm not worried about this one...

Going to brew another batch this weekend. The original recipe is perfect, but I have to add more hops since they are like crack to me.
I plan on bumping up the ibus to 70 and doing lots of late additions and then a big dry hop with american hops.

Anyone try this yet?

An update on mine: I tried a second bottle on Thursday night. It was two weeks in the bottle. I was going to wait until Week 3, but, well, patience is not my thing.

ANYWAY, it was much better than Week 1. The sweetness subsided and the boozyiness settled right in with the flavors.

It may be a little too sweet for my taste still, but we'll see how it is in a few more weeks. Regardless, great beer! Great work, Ed.

Wow, you all weren't lying about the active ferm! Brew day went as planned, and ended up with 1.066 OG. Pitched one pack rehydrated notty. 2 hour lag, and now this! Never had a 1 inch blowoff tube maxed out before.

I'll check in once I take the first taste. Thanks again to the OP for this one!

Figured I'd better add my two cents here....just tasted my first bottle last night. Been carbing for just over two weeks. It's still slightly under-carbed, so I might swirl the bottles and let it sit a couple more weeks. What concerns me is the "watery" mouth-feel and aftertaste (I was expecting a much chewier beer). There's a real nice roasty/chocolatey flavor up front, but it leaves quite a pronounced sweet and watery aftertaste...kind of "thin". I thought I hit all the numbers pretty well (mash around 151, OG 1.062, FG 1.015). Do you guys think this will balance out a bit more over time? Wasn't sure you could actually get rid of that "watery" quality...guess we'll see. Thanks for the input!

Hey Hopdropper, not sure about correcting the watery condition once it's fermented out. Had the same issue with an Irish Stout last year. The flavors and balance definitely changed a bit for the better as it aged though, so don't lose faith quite yet.

Just kegged my version of this porter tonight. I stared with 1.066 OG and ended up at 1.012, which gives me about 7.0 ABV if my math is right. Taste was awesome. Still some noticeable residual sweetness, which is surprising considering the low FG. Slight roastiness, and very slight alcohol notes, which should mellow with time I hope.

I omitted the maltodextrin and used 1/2 lb. carapils in the last 20 min of my mash, per the recommendation of the AWESOME folks at The Beverage People, my AWESOME lhbs. Mouthfeel ended up just right.

I'll let you all know how it turns out once it's all carbed up!

I have everything I need for this except the 8oz of flaked barley, which wasn't available when I was ordering my grains. I have MLHBS, but it is fairly small and I am not sure if they will have it.

I guess my question is, if the DON'T have any, would this beer turn out alright if I omit the flaked barley, or replaced it with something else? (and what would that something be?)

You cab replace with flaked wheat and it would be fine
