Tasted on 3/31/2017 by Rick-B

Notes:

I have had this beer on tap a while it's one of the favorites by all who has it, it's one of my favorites as well. the roast is mild while the chocolate really comes through. i would make this again and probably double if not triple the chocolate malt.

Notes:

I added the 1.5 tsp. of chocolate extract, racked to carboy and placed into cold stabilization around 34 degree, I did not notice a lot of chocolate taste. next step add to keg and carbonate. depending on taste I may add more chocolate extract. taste is mild, no bitterness or coffee tasting.
