I'm currently looking ahead to brews I intend to do in the late winter and spring. Specifically, I'm attempting to formulate a recipe for a Chocolate Stout I want to unviel and serve at my friends' St. Patty's day party this year. In doing so I'm really looking to make a chocolate stout very closely along the lines of Young's Double Chocolate Stout as opposed to the Brooklyn Brewery one.
In doing this I found the following link:
It seems there are several thoughts on the chocolate stout. I guess what I'm asking is, how did these come out? I'm assuming Mriswith,Debtman7, and Brewtopia's brews must all be ready to drink at this point in time. How did these come out? Would you say any of them really came close to Young's or were they quite different. I just really want a brew that both myself and my friends can enjoy. I feel that something similar to Young's would be easily drinkable by the masses. Thanks!
