Have any dark crystal? That and some spices and you are well on your way to a Christmas beer.

Drop the patent down to 2oz. Add 4oz of your three darkest crystals. Ex. 120, 80, 60. Single 60 minute hop addition for 30-40 IBUs. Spice with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice at flameout or in secondary. You could also add a bit of clove if you like it.

I think I may go with the second one I posted but follow your advice on the hops.. single addition at 60 to hit about 30 IBU.....want it to be BLACK but beer calculus is saying only about 12 SRM......I don't want to add in the black patent as it adds a bitterness I am trying to steer clear of on this one.

A bit of roasted barley could give you the color without the harshness of black patent.
