...though BA doesn't. Without knowing the actual question asked, the reference to the Todd Mot answer (from a BA review) can read that regular KtG is oaked, and they also do a special oak/port version.

Either way I'm probably going to oak/port half my 6 gallon batch...It just makes me curious though.
There is or was a "double oaked" version of KTG. I remember reading that they prepared the port and oak sprials for KTG, and then made an uber small batch that was aged on the remaining sprials.
So, AFAIK both are port/oak aged, but the double oaked KTG is different.
Portsmouth brewery has changed their website, and I can't find the actual info to quote, anymore.

Brewed this in January and bottled at the end of September.
Cracked a couple 22's over the weekend to check for carb and drinkability and this was awesome.
Very port forward, IMO but not in a bad way. Really masked the alcohol heat and made this an almost too drinkable RIS.
The rest will stay stashed till Christmas.

scaled this down to a .75 pilot batch since all my carboys are full and i was antsy to learn whether people's complaints about the roasted malt percentages applied to my tastes

I brewed this on Friday, but somehow I managed to forget to put flaked barley in and I instead put in a second dose of black patent. Boooooo.

That is what happens when i brew quickly with a 7 month old in the room interrupting you.

Brewed 5.5 gallons of this yesterday. Hit 1.122 for the OG, which made my brewing partner and I very happy. It's definitely a record for us. We decided to go big to mark our Second Brewniversary.

The taste of the sample was amazing! Fermentation took off in a few hours. I am so excited for this one!

Bonus: we were able to pull off 5.5 gallons of 1.036 stout from a second sparge. By dumping it on a yeast cake, we ended up with a bonus keg of beer for about $3!

I would like to brew a 10-11 gal of this. Do you mind posting your recipe so I can double it? I havent figured out how to use brewing software to do this for me. Thanks!
