This sounds good. Once I get BrewPastor's Dark Night brewed, I may contemplate this one, but I'm running out of room for "puttin' back" beers. May need to consider something more drinkable.

His recipe was one of my many inspirations...

You may already know this, but with this much grain the actual wort you draw off the grain is going to be large: have a big boil pot! Mine holds 6.5 gallons, but I could have used 8. The pic's in my gallery show some shots from brewday!

Can US05 do this high gravity?

I have seen several high-grav stouts use safale-05. I will be taking an SG reading tomorrow. Fermented hard for 4 days, and has been slowly bubbling away for almost 4 weeks!

From what I have read, if I get to 1.030-35, I'll get a decent attenuation and a good balance between malt and hops.

I'll post tomorrow or Saturday about the taste and readings.

WOW!

OG = 1.113, now at 1.040, that's 70.8% attenuation... 9.56% ABV.

well balanced stout!

Keeping my hands off this is going to be really hard!

I kegged 'er for aging another month or two.

This is going to be tough... it tastes really nice! If it turns out as good as I think, I will have to get some opinions and ship a few bottles for testing.

Stay tuned!

I really like this stout... as big as I have ever had!

Being a bit inexperienced in how beers stack-up in the competition world (I trust my tastebuds, but.....), I sent a couple 12's to Biermuncher (thanks for taking the time to do this for me). Review follows:

Aroma: Strong chocolate up front. Could smell the richness. No alcohol fumes...smelled very smooth and mellow. Plum like and some burnt notes. Very nice.

Appearance: Black as oil. Nice, thick legs on the pour. Slight tan head that was minimal, but thick. Left a nice lacing as the head dissipated.

Flavor: Smooth and velvety. Some black currant tones along with the chocolate and slight roastiness. Very nice sweetness but a back of the tongue bitterness to balance it out. Very nice tasting RIS. As I let the beer sit and warm, the taste smoothed out even more. Rich and desert like.

Mouthfeel: Thick but very drinkable. A nice amount of carbonation that didn't over-fizz the beer. The glass laced all the way through. A nice creamy beer that made you swirl it around before swallowing.

Overall: A very good example of an RIS. Rich and smooth. Sweet but balanced with bitterness. Extremely enjoyable. This beer should easily score in the low 40's in a competition and certainly place.

Thanks for a great beer.

I give this beer my official BM stamp of approval (for what that's worth ).

I just cracked the second bottle en route to the hot tub but had to stop on the way to make sure I located this recipe.

This is a fantastically rich, full bodies, smooth as silk RIS.

One suggestion....brew this.

I know I'm going to.
