Vanilla sounds good! As for making this a session beer, it would have to be a very short session for me :-). My ABV is over 6%.

Mine is targeted to finish at 5.8% (if it attenuates as far as expected!). The fermenter is bubbling right now. I guess that may be a little high to be truly "sessionable", but at least I will be able to have 2 or 3 at a time without falling out of my chair!

Just brewed the extract version of this today and followed the recipe exactly as written. My OG came out to 1.063. Anyone else getting slightly higher OGs than what the original recipe states (1.058)? I'm not really worried about it, just wondering.

Just brewed this again and it finished around 1.063 as well.

I actually forgot to check my OG. I will just have to trust that it is accurate. Since I brewed with extract, it is not likely that that I "missed" the OG.

Oh well, we will see how it tastes in a few weeks!

I had been drinking mine straight out of the refrigerator, however I had a New Glarus Brewing "Coffee Stout" the other night and the info on the label suggested drinking it at room temp. It was YUMMY...so I had a DCS the next night at a cool room temp...and it was YUMMIER! Amazing how temp changes taste!

A few weeks might not be long enough. The first time I brewed this, the beer tasted the best at 3 months.

It will be hard not to drink it all at 2 weeks tho

If it tastes really good at 2 weeks, it probably will not make it to 3 months. I had a friend help me with the ingredients cost, so I have to give 1/2 away, right off the top. I guess I will see how far I can make 2.5 gallons go!

On the gravity issues mentioned above. I just added water until I hit the OG. More water usually means more beer in my opinion. Just don't get it too full since it has a pretty hardcore fermentation. Any issues with doing this?

I would think it might finish sweeter with a higher sugar content when it has a higher OG. Anyone else wanna chime in?

My club did an experiment comparing a full boil and partial boil beer. The difference was striking. So much so that I haven't topped off my fermentor since.
