Chocolate Coffee Stout (Chocolate Jitterz)
BTW, the chocolate flavor in this recipe is very evident. If you're looking for a "hint" of chocolate flavor you should scale back the nibs or use another method to attain what you're looking for. However, I've gotten alot of positive responses from this recipe. Cheers!

Can I get a copy of the BeerSmith file on this? I'm feeling lazy and don't want to go thru all the work of puting all the info in there. :mug:
Where do you find chocolate nibs/what are they? Can this be replaced by unsweetened coco powder, or do you need the nibs to get the chocolate flavor to come through?
Take a look here for retailers. The prices start from $18 + S&H.
I've only brewed this with nibs in the secondary fermenter (like dry hopping) and I like the result, so I haven't tried any other method.
My LHBS doesn't carry Caraaroma or Carafa 3. What are some similar malts I could use?
Just picked up the grain bill for this one. Sounds like it will make a great holiday beer. I'm looking forward to it. Thanks for the recipe! I'll let you know how it turns out.
I'll make sure to do that. How does it effect if it were added earlier or later? Just curious.
BTW, I've also brewed this recipe without the coffee. Some of my non-coffee drinking friends prefer it that way.
