I don't think I'd try that if it were me. There's hop oils floating on there too. No big deal if you don't get head retention on this. It's still tasty. Besides, I think the big dose of oatmeal will help counteract some of the fats from your cocoa.

I'll take your advice on that one-makes a lot of sense.

You can get good head out of this beer even if you use regular cocoa.
I took a little sample glass to find out how mine was coming and look what poured out.

That sure doesn't look any lighter than mine like you worried about! How did it taste?

Looks good! I will worry no longer about the head retention.

It tates great. It's really coming along quite nice as it ages. I'm thinking it will be solid black gold for Christmas. I left if for two weeks on the vanilla and I might only do one next time - although everyone who has tried it thinks it tastes great but I could do with a bit less vanilla
Thanks Chshre. I still want to compare brews some time.

Sounds like your vanilla bean was stronger than mine. Mine doesn't have any appreciable vanilla flavor.

CheshreCat,

I brewed this as my first AG on 11/28. Took a hydro sample last night, it's at 1.020. The sample tasted really good, a little "cocoa-ish" still, but I think that the vanilla in secondary will help that. I'm hoping to rack this weekend, probably bottle next weekend, and start drinking at the end of the year.

cocoa-ish is good. This baby is a chocolate bomb.

The vanilla does help mellow it out but that strong chocolate flavor is going to have up front seats for the roller coaster ride down your throat, not that thats a bad thing.
