Amendment to my previous post: I took a gravity reading just now to make sure she's done doing her thing when I keg it this weekend. (Read: I was curious about the gravity, but really I wanted to taste the sample...)
SG: 1.062 (rounded up to 7# of 2-row as noted and got better efficiency than I expected)
Taste?? Well, taking into consideration that I'm a newb and it's uncarbed @ 68deg, all I can say is "damn!!" very VERY good. Nice subtle roasty aroma when you get your nose down into the glass. Very smooth up front w/ a nice carmel-chocolate then finishes with the roast coffee flavor & associated mild bitterness. I'm getting just a touch of alcohol bite/warmth at the finish too. I think with a bit more age it will subside, but it's actually kinda nice where it is.
NCBeernut - THANK YOU for this recipe!!! I'll definitely be brewing this one again!!!
