It is basically a de-shelled, roasted cocoa bean. Cocoa powder is ground Cocoa nibs if I'm not mistaken.

Kegged mine today. Didn't budge from 1.030 though. Next time I think I'll tweak the recipe a little and lower the specialty grains slightly and try a higher attenuating English yeast strain like WLP007. Didn't taste bad at all though. Looking forward to trying this out in about a week.

It's great. Getting better and better every day so I'm trying not to drink it too fast lol. Took longer then expected to carb due to the higher FG. Has a wonderful roasted coffee aroma. The chocolate is noticeable but not overpowering. I used 1/2 pound of cocoa powder in the boil. It drinks incredibly smooth and has a nice sweet finish.

I ended up using special B instead of the dark crystal and victory instead of brown malt. Not sure if I mentioned that before. Only thing I would do differently next time is try to get it to attenuate slightly more.

i've been silently trolling this thread and brewed this 2 weeks ago.

just took my sample and added 6oz of goose soaked cacao nibs (for a 5 gallon batch, was hoping for a little more chocolate notes)

my FG was a little low at 1.050 using the wyeast irish ale and i just added my nibs at 1.022

the sample when taking my OG was super milky and sweet, but a lot of the lactose has seemed to fade, just leaving a subtle twinge on the back end. great roasted notes so far, this beer is going to be amazing. i also have to admit, this was the first time in history that i have taken a sample for my FG and finished the entire sample, i usually will have a few sips and dump it, but i drank this to the end.

This is also going to be the first beer going through my new (early birthday/xmas) nitrogen setup that is going to be delivered and hooked up to the kegerator on friday, i cant wait!
