Opened up two bottles over the weekend at 2 weeks in. Hopefully I can make them last a while, because this beer is awesome already.

Cracked a bottle last night to celebrate the PATS dismantling the Texans. 2 weeks bottle conditioning and it tastes awesome!
I added some bakers chocolate at flame out to get more chocolate finish this time. Yum!

I made the extract version of this with minimal variation. The one variation I made was doing 3/4 lb lactose. I figured this would sweeten it up a bit, but it is outrageously sweet. I'm 2 weeks into bottle condition. Do y'all think another couple weeks in the bottle will help the other flavors come out and balance it out a bit?

Doubtful, but you could probably cold brew some coffee or use a coffee liquor to mix it with if unbearably sweet.

Love to hear some feedback from anyone that has racked on nibs or added powder at flame out. Anyone brew both ways and habeas some feedback on how it tastes with and without?
Really looking forward to this brew! Brewed the extract version yesterday. Only 60 days till I try one!

I have a hard time believing the extra .25 lbs of lactose would make that much of a difference. I wonder if something else was off. What was your gravity when you bottled? Maybe it wasn't done yet?

If all went well, my money would be that it gets a lot better with age. Forget about it for a month. I didn't ration very well, but my 6 month bottles were great.

I soaked 8 oz of cocoa nibs in a cup of vanilla rum overnight and threw them into the primary for a week. Added a really awesome chocolate flavor to the beer.

I'm not sure what the FG was... I brewed it with a friend while teaching him to brew on his equipment and he didn't check when he bottled. I hit the OG on the dot and I know my buddies process was spot on, since after all it was my process

We will give it another few weeks and hopefully it balances out.

It fermented for 2 weeks in the primary and 2 in the secondary at 70 degrees so there is no way it wasn't finished...

I mean I really didn't think of mine as "sweet" at all.
