I did the revised. Its great. Has a perfect amount of Roasted B. I'm drinking a pint of it right now. Nice roasty stout, sits well with me and the fire I have going right now.

I finally got around to bottling my batch of this beer. Since I made it as a 6 gallon batch, but forgot to compensate on the dme, my OG was only 1.047. Due to laziness, it sat for almost four months in primary. I took a grav reading of 1.012 tonight, giving an ABV of 4.5%. I tasted the sample, and it was really smooth! It had absolutely no undesirable flavors. I can't wait to taste the final product!
If it's as good as the sample is suggesting, this one is definitely going into my A-list.

Kudos to JLem for creating such a nice recipe!

Thanks! Glad it turned out well - I can see too how some extended aging could smooth it all out. I actually haven't returned to this recipe for some time - maybe I'll add it to my fall lineup.

Did you go with the original recipe or the revised?

I went with the revised recipe. I'm going to see if I can hold off on opening one, until my birthday, in August. Probably won't happen, though...

Wow! Converted this to AG and made a split batch. Fermented 1/2 with Denny's Fav and the other half got bottle-harvested Bell's house yeast.

Both versions are amazing. Can't decide which one is better, but who cares? They're both awesome! Cheers!

Glad to know folks are enjoying this recipe. I really should brew it up again.

Curious about what the differences are between the yeasts you uses. I've never used Denny's and I've only had a couple of Bell's beers (can't get them here in MA).

The chocolate/coffee/roast flaked really shine in the Denny's batch. The Bell's one had a little more sweetness, which is really good too.

I hear American Ale II is pretty close to Bell's if you can't get it where you are.
