Looking for feedback on this Stout recipe. Just began looking into formulating recipes and thought "Why not go with something ridiculous?" The concept of this beer is to get a depth of dark chocolate flavor, with some possible subtle caramel notes. Opinions of the experienced welcome.
Tweaked the recipe slightly. Brewed this back on 01DEC'12. Just bottled it two weeks ago. The wort at bottling time was tasty as hell. Nice coffee aroma on the nose, the mouth gives you the bitter of the roast malts and dark chocolate. The end leaves you with some subtle taste of the vanilla bean and a dry finish that will has you goin' back for another drink.
Hoping that the addition of carbonation will only enhance these qualities. Cracking the test bomber next weekend.
:Thanks for pushing the thread around, I was unaware.
