If this beer tastes reminicent of those,I'd try brewing it myself!
thanks for the reply.
The chocolate oranges around the holidays is exactly what i'm aiming for!. I actually began this thread after the beer was in the primary. You're right, I should have did the chocolate addition @ 15 min. Hopefully I don't get too much bitterness.
When fermentation is complete, I will take a sample and taste it. Maybe adding cocoa nibs to the secondary. idk, just gonna have to wait and see
