Just another update. I am just about to finish off this very tasty recipe. Since brewing this I have converted to AG, so I just got back from the LHBS and got the ingredients to make this again over the holidays. I am leaving the hops and special grains the same as the first time, the only difference is I will be using 11 lbs of 2 row. Again, a very tasty recipe and I for sure recommend it to anyone that likes a nice, roasty, stout.

I just brewed this 2 days ago and I can't wait to try it! The only thing different thing was 4.5 lbs of malt vs 4 lbs I didn't notice it until I poured it in and it said 4.5 insted of 4. O well hope it turns out good it smells great!

To be honest, you really can't go too heavy on this recipe. It seems to only get better with more thrown in, in my opinion.

Of course, I practically love to chew my stouts so... maybe I'm not the best one to offer up opinions on this

Thanks for the great recipe! This was a huge hit with my friends on St. Paddy's Day. I will definitely brew again.

Just wanted to throw a little commentary in since I tried my first bottle of this last night. It's the first batch I bottled, and the last extract brew I did. I changed the recipe ever so slightly based on commentary in the thread and the hops I had around. Brewed on 3/1, bottled 3/27, tried my first bottle last night.. And I swear, this is good enough beer to pay for! Wow! Nice and roasty, great body, not too terribly heavy so that you wouldn't want another, though. Decent head considering it's not really conditioned fully yet. Great, great beer. I think I'll chill another and crack it tonight, then stash the rest of the bottles so I don't drink 'em all before they're finished!!

Thanks again for the recipe!

I brewed this recipe last month and I thought it came out great.

The only change I made was that I used White Labs WLP004 Irish Ale yeast instead of Muntons.

The beer came out with a very pleasant roast coffee flavor. It was pretty dry which I liked.

My only critique would be that although it has great roasted backbone, it needs a little more something to fill out the body. It also doesn't have quite the same silky mouthfeel that you expect from a stout. Head retention was a bit weak.

Overall a GREAT beer though, and I really enjoy drinking this one.

Glad to hear you enjoyed it! I just made another batch of it for a Homebrew competition up here in VT on May 1st. I'll let you all know how it does.

Keep the innovation of the beer coming! I love to hear that everyone's got their own awesome twist on it! Maybe one day it'll become legendary.
