One last question. I'm brewing this with out the special roast, but my question is about the secondary fermentation. I know secondary is controversial, but is it necessary or can I primary for 4 weeks.

I'm tasting a sample 3 weeks after brewing. It's almost done carbonating in the bottle, and it tastes fantastic! The dextrin malt helps a great deal with head retention. I'll update when it's done aging. Thanks for the recipe! I'll definitely do it again.

Oh great...Thanks for brewing it. Glad you liked it...

I've been enjoying the smoked and the oaked smoked version of this that I brewed awhile back.

This is very tasty. I made the extract version, and it reaches maturity at about 10-12 weeks after bottling. Biscuit with a hint of chocolate and the hop bitterness in the background.

Now that I switched to all grain, I'll have to try this again next year.

I was dating an irish woman at the time I came up with the recipe. And it kid of reminds me of Bog roads in Ireland. especially with the small amount of smoked malt it in.

The title comes from this traditional Irish song.

I'm so glad you liked it. I just noticed you had posted a few weeks ago, sorry for ignoring you.

Hey Revvy, Just brewed the AG version of this recipe and must say the smell of the special B/choco/Victory is delicious. My wife walked in the door and said the whole apartment smelled like pumpkin/almonds (which made me smile). Looking forward to having this be a solid autumn/winter beer for all to enjoy.

Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Thanks for brewing it. I haven't touched it in awhile. Maybe I'm due for another brew of it as well.
