Wow, last night I get off work, about two inches of Krausen and bubbling away. I wake up this morning about 10 hours later and am greated to wort being pushed all the way into water bucket and krausen in the blow off tube. This is my first experience with a more violent fermentation, quite impressive.

Yep! Both of the recipes I have under my sig provide violent fermentations!

I have my last bottle of this brew in my glass. After a year, it is a bit sweet. My next beer to brew is a repeat of this one for Thanksgiving. I think I am going to up the IBU's at the 60 minute boil time. Possibly 50% more hops...

Keep me posted!

I think my IBU's came in a little higher, due to the fact that with 10 minutes left in the boil, I realized I had only made my first initial hop addition. So I added the aroma hops, made them a 20 minute addition and the warrior ended up going for 70 minutes instead of 60. Based on what you're saying about recipe, this may be a good thing. We'll see. On another note, I popped the top for a smell....awesome.

Sounds yummy!!!!

We cracked our first bottle after 3 weeks of bottle conditioning. We only hit 8.5% ABV and I'm guessing cause we didn't have the capacity to boil the 8 gallons of wort we collected. We split this into 2 batches and didn't boil it down to 5. The sample we tried was a little slow on the carbonation, but I have to say, this is SUPER YUMMY.. I don't think I have had a stout quite like it. It hits the tongue sweet and frothy, cherry, almond then the hops start layering the palate. The taste lingers unchanged for many moments. Going to let the rest of this 5 gallon batch age out a bit. The second 2 gallon side batch we added clove, rosemary and M&M's! LOL (why not) I'll let you know how that turns out!! Will be brewing this again in the near future!!! Many thanks for the post!!

Your comments are actually quite right... the bitterness does fade. My next batch will have quite a bit more hops.

I am going above that, and will post the new recipe. My B-day's coming up, so I want to brew a big one for the occasion.

I am looking at 100IBU or so that this can age a bit. Currently, at 10 months in a bottle, the bitterness needed to balance it is gone.

I have some 16.6AA Zeus and 11.2AA Centennial. I'm going to go larger with the bittering hops.
