I have not made any stouts yet, because I only enjoy them when the snow is falling. I have been looking for a stout though to take back home for the upcoming Holidays and stubbled upon your reciepe, it sounds like a perfect treat for the holidays. Keep me posted on your progression, cause I would really like to make one for the occasion.
