I was getting ready to prepare this recipe from Clone Brews.

Did anyone here eventually brew this particular recipe, and if so how did it compare to original.

Got plans to do this batch over MLK day, think I'll called it Occupator.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Edit: 1/17/2012 - So I ended up brewing this recipe, with a few small changes. I'll report back in several months to let you know how it turned out.

How's it going so far? You might still be lagering at this point

Yeah, its about one month into lagering so far. I might have to take a taste today to see how its progressing.

Edit:
3/18/2012 - I checked out how the lagering was progressing. Its attenuated down from 1.084 to 1.025, 7.7% ABV, 70% AA. It has a nice chocolate color, but clear. Taste great,its got a fairly complex flavor profile. A nice roasted character; chocolate is present but not overwhelming. Its got a bit of alcohol taste to it, not too bad, hopefully that will mellow out a bit. I fermented @ 50˚ the entire time, its been lagering at about 33˚ for around 40 days so far.

I've not had a Celebrator in awhile, probably time to run down to Sergio's to compare to the commercial example.

Umm good!!

It came out with a very complex flavor profile. A bit chocolatey, not bitter, smooth, rich, quite tasty. I mentioned hot alcohol taste when it was young, that flavor disappeared after about 4 months of lagering.

I've not had opportunity to compared to the original yet.

I probably still have about 1-2 gallons remaining; seems like its peak flavor was reached at around 9 months of lagering. Its still good, but doesn't seem quite as robust as 2 months ago.

I bottled a few of longevity; I'll be curious to taste how they hold up.

I can recommend the recipe I devised, I'll be doing it again in the next month or two. Be cautious with the chocolate malt addition, it could easily overpower the fine balance of flavor. I used the British chocolate because its bit less bitter than ordinary chocolate malt.

Next time I pour one I take a photo and post.
