I actually have a taster for stouts. By that I mean I have been drinking them, a wide variety, for way longer than I have been brewing. But this one spent about two weeks in primary, and 6 in secondary. Maybe that helps?
My IPA's tend to taste like I am eating raw hops till they've been in the bottle a while.
I have an amber that I bottled at the same time as the stout, which I hopped like an IPA, and it tastes wonderful, but just hasn't carbed.
I guess I'll look over at the other site and see what the science nerds (I are one) are saying. It did seem strange that the stout was good so fast, so maybe it'll be really good in a couple of months if it lasts that long.
