I created this beer from Designing Great Beers, and I have to say I would buy this beer at a bar. It is the BEST beer I've made, with great mouthfeel, great chocolatey flavor without being overwhelming, and a great hop presence for the style. SG a little high for the 10C category, but amazing nonetheless!

I just purchased all of the ingredients and I'm going to try this recipe verbatim. I'll post my comments after we crack the first bottle. It sounds great!
