I've done this batch twice now and am happy with both of them. I'll be cracking open the first of the latest batch in about a week. This beer has gotten some of the most praise from friends and family.

Smoke flavor is dominant but not so much that you can't taste the chocolate and caramel malts. Brown sugar helped to dry it out a little and I think the smokeyness helps it feel drier as well. Two beers I had given away had recently been drank after aging for about 9 months and I was told they tasted excellent. Definitely benefits from aging but is very drinkable after just a few weeks in the bottle

The first time I didn't hit my target gravity but it turned out great. This time around I hit all my targets and it tasted good going into the bottles. So I'm confident it'll turn out well again.
