Racked "The Stuff" to secondary last night. Tastes like a dry stout, smells like??? This is the first time I've added hops. Maybe that's what I'm smelling. It has a bitter, hoppiness with an aftertaste that I think is alcohol. According to my calculations, it's at either 19.5 or 3.2 % ABV right now. I screwed up the OG reading. Took one of 1144 in straight wort, Took another with the wort way too watered down. No idea. I guess I'll have to put it to the old standby test. Just drink it and measure brain numbness. Not as scientific, but way more fun!!

probably a little of both. the stout will have a little more bitter taste from the dark roasted grains (or in the darker extract) and the hops you added. let it sit about 7-10 days in the secondary, then bottle. once it's carbonated, it will have mellowed a bit.

so, you've never used pellet hops in your brews, always just hopped extract?

De Roux- Just read your post. I just bottled tonight. I'm impatient, I know. Added half a pot of strong coffee with the priming sugar and some vanilla flavoring mixed in. Had to drink some green. Right now, it tastes like Guinness' answer to cotton candy. It's sweet to start with, followed by a bitter hoppiness. A couple of weeks in the bottle should cure the sweetness, I think.
All in all, it tastes pretty good. I had a 40 oz. Miller( The champagne of cheap commercial beers, I drink them for the bottles) And about 10 ounces of the new beer. My head is numb. That doesn't normally happen with the Miller, so I'm attributing it to the new beer. Could be the bleach fumes from sanitizing. I'll know more about it in the next few weeks. What to brew next? The ever present question.
