Weird that you got a thinner body than I did, but glad you like it. I actually brewed this to 13E, American Stout. I don't really pay close attention to BJCP when I brew though.

Personally for this beer I stick to 14 days. Longer would be fine though, flavors would mellow a bit - I prefer them more in-your-face.

I'm still new to brewing, so could anyone convert this to an extract recipe for me? My brewing partner and I were just talking about something like this today.

I'm really not much of a stout fan at all, and I've never followed anyone else's recipe before, but for some reason this looks so damn appealing and don't want to change a thing! I will have to brew this soon!!!

It looks like melted chocolate in the glass. Amazing!

You also mentioned that the cocoa falls into the trub after fermenting and forms a sludge? I've actually never worked with cocoa before, do you think adding it in a permeable bag like a hop sack (or maybe something thicker since this is powder) would work as well?

I haven't tried that before, but if my mind serves me properly the cocoa had the consistency of hop matter in the kettle - I don't know how that would affect the taste of the beer though. I usually just let it drop out and rack it off. Worth a shot!
