I did taste it when it went into primary and it tasted pretty good. The specific gravity of it has stayed at 1012 for a few days so I figured it was ready to move on to secondary. While I was moving it to the secondary with my auto siphon I got to see the beer as it went through the clear hose and it had an incredible dark amber color like a burnt orange or copper color. It smelled fantastic too. Took a little taste and I'm pretty satisfied with it up to here.
For secondary flavoring I added 4 oz cocoa nibs and 1 lb of lactose as I had pre determined in my recipe. I also decided to add 2 oz of natural unsweetened cocoa powder. That should give it a good chocolate flavor and not be a super strong chocolate flavor. It looked and smelled great after the additions. I'm excited to see how it turns out.
