Double Drunk Monk Belgian Dark
 
10 lbs Pilsner Liquid Extract
1.3lbs Belgian Rock Candi Amber
1lb Carafa III
8oz Biscuit Malt
7oz Special B
6oz Aromatic Malt
1oz Chocolate Malt

Hops:
60 minutes: 1oz Northern Brewer @ 8.5AA
30 minutes: 1oz Styrian Aurora @ 8.0AA
30 minutes: 1oz Hallertau @ 3.1AA

Boil: 3.0 gallons
9.7% ABV / 8% ABW

Steep Grains. I didn't pitch a starter and the beer worked perfectly. It's rich and smooth. You can drink this young (3-4 weeks) but really deserves age (4-6+ months).

This won first place in a homebrew club competition. Entered into the Colorado State Fair - hope it does well :)

What did your scoresheet from the state fair look like on this one?
Thanks!

This looks delicious. What yeast and OG please?

Wyeast Belgian Abby Ale (1214)

I would add a little more bittering hops to balance it - it's really quite sweet.

Great Recipe! Ive been looking for a solid BSDA

for the rock candi...did you just add that into the boil or did you add that into secondary? I think I'm going to use Turbinado sugar and invert that, since my lhbs doesn't have and Belgian rock candi.
