Yeah, I think that they throw in some darker grains and/or boil it longer before spraying it to make it darker.

I've used dark extracts before and never really noticed the presence of any roasted grain flavor, so I assume that they use a very small amount of it when they make the malt extract.

I've got no problem with roasted barley, but I find that I only use it when making a stout.

That definately looks like a big-@ss roastey and bitter beer, for sure.

it is still a little young but I couldn't wait. actually it isn't bad and it is real smooth not harsh nor heavy. it has an intersting taste with the 1056 like a dark coffee, roasty pale ale of sorts. it was the big brew 2005 recipe. it's good.

Noticed this in your sig when reading the IPA thread and was wondering how things have gone with it since. It looks like a superb recipe and one I'd like to try since I've become quite fond of a solid Porter. I'm hoping it has lived up to your expectations.

I actually changed the recipe completely before brewing it. The one linked to in my sig is what I have right now. I'm more happy with this porter than the others I have made, but I'm not 100% satisfied (I wonder if I ever will be.)

I'm interested in what some others think of it since I might be too critical of the recipe. I've given samples to The Kaiser, BOSTONBREWIN', Baron von BeeGee, Dude, sailman, and BeerLuvnGrl. I think Dude is going to share with SwAMi75, and I hope to get an analysis from both of them.

I saw your changes in this thread. I'm assuming the link in your sig was the final recipe? It looks awfully good, so I hope the reviews from the crew are good... of course with Dude's dancin' homies in the thread all bets are OFF
