This is my first recipe post. I kind of threw this recipe together randomly, as it was originally designed as a starter for a barleywine. At the end I realized that I had made a stout with pretty much all UK ingredients except the yeast. It turned out really well so on a whim I entered it in a competition under 13E - American Stout and ended up taking gold in stouts for it. It's a very smooth stout with loads of roasty flavor. It's almost an Imperial Stout, but a lot more drinkable. Considering it was my first solo All-Grain batch I'm really happy with how it turned out, and I'll definitely be making it again.

How long did you ferment it?

Also, I figure you kegged it, right? Were the fuggles kind-of lost in the mix, or were they prominent?

3 weeks in primary with no secondary. I bottled this batch as I hadn't gotten my kegging system yet. There wasn't much if any hop quality apparent in the aroma over the roast/coffee of the malt, but it did provide balance to the malt flavors. I think the fuggles specifically enhanced the earthy flavors that you sometimes get in a dark chocolate or coffee. I also just like fuggles and use it in at least 50% of my recipes.
