Yeah 'Cat you have me wanting to split my batch and add some cherries or coffee to mine. I think for my first attempt, I will stick to the original recipe.

Made this yest'day, pitched at 2am, by 10am the lid was bulging out and was about to pop. The airlock was hissing loudly and full of beer, but it looks amazing and I am extremely excited about it!! But a heads up to anyone making this, stouts typically need a lot of headspace but MAN this recipe is serious!

When this beer is done and poured into the fermenter, should it just be left at room temperature? or lightly refrigerated?

Might get some fusel alcohol production at that temp. Maybe some esters, but the chocolate tends to drown those out.

Try doing a swamp cooler. Get a big tub, put the fermenter in it, put water in the tub about halfway up the fermenter and then throw in some frozen water bottles a few times a day. That's what I do.

Not quite like chocolate milk. Definitely not nearly as sweet.

I use US04 or US05, depending on if I want more of an English or American profile to it.

Honestly, it doesn't make much difference. The chocolate drowns out most of the esters from the 04.
