this didnt turn out too bitter? I used the same amount of chocolate malt with 6.6 lbs coopers stout LME and no hops(coopers pre hopped) and it was real bitter, granted this was one of my first batches ever but it aged for a while, almost 2 months and it was better but alot more bitter then I wanted. think I steeped too hot maybe?

No, not to bitter for my taste and I'm not a huge fan of super hoppy, bitter beers right now.

I would think the difference between our recipes would be the pre hopped LME that you used. I've never used that kind, so I couldn't really say.

I would describe this recipe as more toasty than bitter.

Thanks for the post in language I could mostly understand. I'm going to give your recipe a try. This will only be my second batch to brew in a very long time so If you can give me some more specifics of your procedure I'd love to read them. (My first batch didn't turn out)
