Looks great to me. Anytime I use powder it's just a friggin mess though. Why only bittering hops?

I just racked this to the Secondary after just over a week and it is still very chocolaty in color, Looks like chocolate milk. Will it stay like this or will the coco eventually fall out of suspension.

Thanks
Scott

The chocolate does settle out quite a bit.
There is always a good amount of sediment in primary as well as secondary I usually let sit in primary for 1 week then 3 weeks secondary and then keg. I am sure I will be as good in bottle.
Hope you enjoy.

Coffee would be great with this. Although flavored hazelnut I find personally unappealing. I would cold press an espresso bean or a strong highly roasted coffee just to make sure that it was able to break through and provide some flavor.
