Brewed with alc boost and double pitched Nottingham. This is delicious. Had friends over for a cookout and they loved it. Spice level is perfect to me. I went against my judgment and used the whole spice packet. Only a hint of spice comes through and it works great with the roasty base. Will definitely brew this one again!
Excellent recipe! No modifications but added alcohol boost, turned out spicy, roasty, and dark. Well worth the purchase.
Great beer. I made several modifications to the mini-mash recipe. First, an extra half pound of chocolate rye malt was added to the mash. Second, 2oz Sumatra coffee and 2oz of organic cacao nibs was added in last 15 minutes of boil. Third, added tincture of cacao nibs and more coffee (2oz of each) soaked in 6oz rye whiskey to secondary for last 4 days. Tincture should be prepared, sealed, and refrigerated for at least a week before adding. Easy beer to make, great finished product.
Very nice and has aged well. The spicing is mild, and the Munich comes through strong.
I made this for the holiday season in 2011. I let it age for about about a month before force carbonating and bottling. Ireally liked it, and ended up giving most of it away as Christmas gifts to friends and neighbors. It received many very positive reviews. The only problem was that by the time everyone got a bottle (or two), I had none left, so I had to order another kit.
