Heres my beer view on this awesome Porter. A must try!!

Pookanc's Rum Oaked Espresso Chocolate Porter

3.3lb Hopped Dark LME
3.3lb Unhopped Dark LME
1lb of Dark DME
1lb Raw Sweet Sue's Raw Honey
4.4oz Dark Chocolate 85% Coco
7lbs Sweet Potatos (Peeled Weight) : Peeled, then Baked @ 300F for 2 hours, then Mashed (like Mashed Potatos) and Frozen for at least 24 hours, then Thawed to room temp before Mashing in 3 gals of water at 152F for 1 hour. Orange Sweet Potatos work better than the White Potatos, More Flavor.
