I split a bottle of this with a relative last weekend and at 3 months old this thing still has quite the alcohol warmth to it and needs a lot more aging. The chocolate taste is overboard too, I hope that fades with time. It was still good as a sipping beer but man at 12.6% ABV, that is all it is.

Humann, besides halving the cocoa nibs and cutting back on the 2-row, is there anything else you'd change with your recipe or do you think it's still too early to tell?

Edit: Any update on yours Eddie now that it's had some time?

Yes, instead of just dumping the cocoa in at the end of the boil, the brewer said that he sprinkled it in during the last 15 minutes of the boil. I think those are the only differences. Also I used the majority of a yeast cake but was from a high gravity brew and I think that hindered the performance of the yeast because I pitched some Nottingham when it was about 1040.
