Notes

For a twist on the recipe try soaking 2 oz of medium toasted American Oak cubes for about a month in some bourbon. Then toss the cubes into a carboy with the beer for two months or more depending on the oak flavor you want.

The brew came out very similar to Great Lakes Blackout stout. Very pleased with the results, and I will brew again. Also you may want to use a little more of the chocolate malt because the chocolate flavor is very subtle.
