Made this yesterday. Everything went well except when I tasted my sample it had what I would describe as a slightly burnt after taste. I'm not sure if I scorched the wort or if it was maybe the chocolate malt as I haven't done an AG with that dark a malt yet.Hopefully I didn't screw it up.

Dark roasted malts need some time to mellow. Green beer has a tendency to be very harsh tasting.

You know the other day I made an Oatmeal Stout, and my boil off was just less than usual, so I had to boil longer. When I tasted the sample, I thougth the same thing, it tasted burnt. 3 Weeks later I kegged it and tasted it, I couldnt taste it any more. Should be even better by November.

I brewed this last Saturday on my double batch brew day. Took a Hydro sample today, sitting at 1.031, so still a bit to go but that sample tasted awesome! I am very much looking forward to this, thank you for sharing this excellent recipe BM!

Just bottled this Saturday after 4 weeks in primary. My FG was at 1.033 which is a little high but seems to be fairly common as I read through the thread.My OG was 1.071 so it's still just a shade under 5 abv. I'll check back in 3 weeks after the first taste test.

has anyone tried this using the fly sparge? Would you still sparge at 175 as opposed to the usual 168? I'm also curious what might happen if I increase the grain/water to 1.4 qrts water/grain. Thoughts?

Well it took 8 weeks for the burnt taste to subside but it's turned into a really nice beer and will only get better as it ages I suspect. I steeped 2 vanilla beans in vodka and added them at bottling so if anything it's a little too sweet but still very drinkable and that too should get better with age. I've been holding off on letting anyone try it until I thought it was acceptable but as BM says I think many of my friends that shy away from stout will really like this.

Just brewed this last night and pitched S-05 (all I had on hand). Looks and smells great! Just a quick question / thought about the IBUs. They calculate to about 6. This seems kind of low - should they be higher? All of the other BM recipes I have made have been great, so I am trusting this one also but I was just wondering.
