This is a real nice brew. Not overly hoppy, very smooth and if you add a little chocolate it turns out great, I used the mini mash kit. By far my favorite part of dealing with AHS is the shipping. Everything is packed excellent with lots of packing to protect everything.
Outstanding beer, very accurate for the style too! I made this one on Christmas day and it turned out to be a whopping good beer. I used the alcohol boost and it put this thing up to nearly 9%!!!! Needless to say, I dont think you really need the booster... I didnt find a single person who didnt love this one, it disappeared so quickly that I had none left over to cellar! I'll be putting this one in my regular winter rotation.
This is an excellent beer! Everyone that's tried it loves it. It's an excellent stout with a great oatmeal flavor. It was decent after three weeks, but after six it was outstanding!
My favorite homebrew to date! I brew mini-mash and this was the 2nd recipe I tried. It is very smooth, not bitter at all, definite roasted/coffee/chocolate tones...Love it! I made this late last summer/early fall. We are making it again this weekend.
At a week after bottling I was a bit unimpressed by this stout. Happily I just shelved it and didn't pick it back up for about another month. By then it was excellent and only got better the longer it rested. At about 2 1/2 to 3 months after bottling it was superb! I highly recommend that you brew this one around September or October so that it is ready by winter.
