Has anyone done a taste profile of this beer? Any pics? I'm wondering how much chocolate flavor is in it. I am also wondering what sweet orange peel instead of bitter would do. I am also thinking about coco nibs. Thoughts?

Well...I'm going to give it a go. I'm going to rack this on to cocoa nibs in secondary. I won't make this until next month but now I have a plan.

Did you brew and how did it turn out? Maybe I'll catalog my brew day of this whenever I get around to doing it.

A late reply, don't make it over here as much as I used to...

The beer has very little chocolate character–think amber ale–since it's only 3oz (I'm not sure why I listed it as 3.2 oz, I'm really not that particular, honestly). Also, its a low lovibond chocolate. Most shops have it labeled as pale chocolate. It has an orangish hue somewhere between an Amber and a pale brown.
