Additions to recipe:

I just fermented in the primary for 3.5 weeks, cold crashed for 2 days outside ~ 35-38*. Primed with 5oz corn sugar.

Popped the first bottle after just 5 days. I couldn't wait.

Oh my this is tasty. A good bit of caramel and chocolate and a heavy hit of Coffee.

It's a bit thin on the palate, but it also was not carbonated at all yet. Drank the entire flat beer.

I will taste again in a week. If the mouthfeel thickens up a bit, I'll be entering it in the fair.

Turns out my priming sugar didn't mix very well when bottling.

1/2 my bottles are flat and the other 1/2 are WAY overcarbed and come shooting out when opened. I'm really surprised that I haven't had a grenade go off. The Flat bottles taste great, although a bit light on the tongue. The overcarbed bottles taste like worshire sauce...yuk.

I'm confident in the recipe and will try again.

Would you say use less of the priming sugar or just a better mix? My last batch of heavy beer ended up the same, worcestershire sauce throughout every bottle, the over carbonation might explain it.

I would be confident saying the amount of sugar is correct, it just did not mix properly when racking into my bottling bucket.

The 12oz bottles are way too over carbed, and the 22oz bottles are just right. If I remember correctly, I bottled a dozen or so 12oz bottles, then the 12 - 22s and moved back to 12s.
