Reporting back here after about a little over a month in keg (5 weeks total cold) and I must say. This beer, as most dark beers do, has mellowed out into an excellent, session roasty ale. I guess what I mean by that, is it feels/tastes like the British bitter's roasty cousin. It's super drinkable, but satisfies the want for dark beer flavor without having to break out the imperial stout.

Great beer I'll rebrew with Willamette for finishing just to see how it differs from the cascade I used. Cheers Bob

Hurrah!

I'm glad you like it. Do try it with Willamette. I really <3 Willamette, and use it all the time in beers like this. Gives a lovely vegetal, earthy character.

I brewed a porter 3 weeks ago that I based on this recipe. I had a bunch of leftover ingredients and wanted to put together a session porter, and I've always wanted to brew one of Bob's recipes.

Here is what I brewed:

Fermentables
3.15 lbs Amber LME
3.15 lbs Golden Light LME
.5 lbs English Chocolate Malt
.25 lbs Belgian Debittered Black Malt
.25 lbs Dark Brown Sugar

Hops
1 oz Centennial (9 AAU) @ 60 min
1 oz Cascade (6 AAU) @ 1 min

Yeast
US-05


I just moved it to a bright tank, and took a taste of the gravity reading. Very nice! Chocolate and caramel are front and center. The cascades are noticeable in the finish. It's a smooth beer, which I am sure the debittered black malt contributed to.

I'm looking forward to trying it chilled and carbonated!

Great recipe, Bob!
