Add dark sludge to the top of the mash just before sparging.

One of my best beers...reminds me of Irish Death. It wasn't nearly as bitter as I thought it would be..likely due to the old hops. My yeast did fine and I was fortunate, but in the future it would be wise to use 2 packets for such a high gravity beer. Pitched at ~60F.
Carb to 2.4 volumes.
