It gets better with age - at 1 year, it's at it's best.

You upped the IBUs to 100, correct?

More Warrior/Willamette, or a different hop?

I am out of Warrior, so I subbed another hop (I think it was Magnum). However, I really like Willamette for this stout.

Next batch I am going to dry hop with Willamette, too!

I used a keg. Purged, pressurized to 15psi, and put a gauge on it. That only lasted 6 months - couldn't wait to try it!! I carbed and tasted.

I bottled most of it from the keg, and let it age further. It was really at it's best at 1 year.

I would recommend bottle or keg. Bottles allow you to grab a taste as it ages.

I am going to re-brew this next weekend for the 2012 NHC.

i might bottle....but probably not. i'll probably leave it in the carboy for a good 10 months then keg. i don't have any spare kegs so if i were to keg this now i'd be down a tap for a year....not gonna happen.

before i racked i filled the carboy with CO2 so hopefully it'll be good.

well i brewed this today! i have an round 10 gallon mash tun. It filled it up to the brim! I had a hard time stirring it up and i know i didnt get all the clumps broken up. I also normally double batch sparge, but didnt have enough sparge water to do this. Ended up with 65% efficiency! so mine will end up around 9.5%. not terrible, but definitely not what i was going for. cant wait to taste this one! i plan on letting it age at least 6 months before kegging.
