I like to add 3oz of Ghirardelli cocoa powder with 5-10 min left in the boil to add a chocolate flavor that blends really well with my porter. You could try that.

The best recipe I've tried first up. Most take a second try and a tinker to get right but this is beautiful after 3 weeks bottled. Thx again

I was going to try a similar recipe and "dry hop" with cocoa nibs to impart a chocolate flavor.

I am tempted to just leave it as is with all of the rave reviews and then modify later. I am trying to convince a non-stout drinker.

I know some have added lactose, do you find it cloying?

What is the general concensus on the coffee flavors: strong, mild, balanced?

Thanks

If you are gearing it toward a non-stout drinker, it wouldn't hurt to add that extra half pound of lactose and make it more of a milk stout. The coffee flavor is subtle and balanced in the regular recipe.

I think the biggest thing to keep on mind with this beer is that it needs a good 6 weeks of bottle conditioning to balance everything out. If kegging, a 4-6 week secondary wouldn't hurt.

That settles it. Picking up ingredients Monday. 1lb lactose leaving the rest as is.

How many nibs would you use in secondary for a five gallon batch? Did you try it?
