Default any problems with the chocolate?

I guess there's no problem, but I thought that because of the cocoa butter in chocolate( like bakers) that it could cause problems? Anybody know about this? If its a chocolate with low amounts of cocoa butter is it ok?

Baking chocolate usually refers to pure cacao which has minimal amount (53%) of cocoa butter which, according to Wikipedia

Chocolate that is sold as XX% cacao has more cocoa butter and sugar added to it.

I found a recipe in a book that has the same ingredients with this exception. Instead of the cherry extract, 5lbs of crushed sour cherries were added immediately after the boil for 15 minutes. Anyone do something like this.

I know this is a pretty old thread, but I believe that this is going to be my next brew and I was curious, did you ever try this again with adding a little bit more cherry extract?

Also, the chocolate that you used, was it Baker's unsweetened chocolate, or was a different variety of Bakers? You added these right near the end of your brew I see?

Thanks for any help you offer up. I'm new to the game, and no one ever said I was super original with my ideas, but I do want to make a Chocolate Cherry Stout that is similar to the one you describe here, I am going to get that NB Dark Cherry Stout kit and roll from there. The one you have in your photo looks so damn tasty. About how long did you age it to arrive at that kind of flavor?

I hope that we can get some good info about this beer at some point. I think it does sound like something a lot of my friends and family would enjoy, if it is possible to get some clarification from an experienced brewer, that would be fantastic.
