Default Jamil's Chocolate Hazelnut Porter

Has anyone made this recipe?? How did it turn out and would you recommend changing anything?? I guess I'm wondering how much the chocolate flavor comes through? Thanks!

I made it and it tasted great. The chocolate in mine was very subtle. Not overt like Sam Addams Chocolate Bock. Extremely dark and I left out the hops at flameout. I've seen 2 versions of the recipe, the hop times are a little different and the expected final gravity is a little different. Mine stopped at 1.024 and was very smooth and malty, not sweet at all just well balanced. Its been requested as a house brew.

I was thinking of using a little Chocolate Extract at bottling along with the cocoa that is called for. Do you think that would be too much then?

Was the chocolate taste so subtle that you wouldn't have picked it up if you didn't know it had cocoa in it? Thanks for the response!

I have this beer on tap right now and I think its a solid beer. I added to much hazelnut extract by accident when I was kegging it, so for the first 2 weeks the hazelnut was overpowering. After it subsided it has turned out to be awsome. The cocoa powder gives the beer just a hint of chocolate and if you want more of a chocolate taste then add the choc. extract, but to have the hazelnut with just a hint of choc. leave it out.

Fastricky here is where I found the recipe, on the 3rd page

I know from listening to the Brewing Network that this must be a very good beer. He wins all sorts of awards with it. It is featured on MoreBeer's site. IMO, you should brew it as written at least once. If you need to adjust it then you can and you won't have to rely on other people's opinions.
