Notes

Augmented recipe based on Ballast Point...

*Used Bairds British Crystal 135/165L v. Crystal 140

LATE ADDITIONS of chocolate and black patent malts to avoid astringent flavors.

DRY HOP ADD: Roasted Cocao and vanilla bean (1 week)

Notes: amazing efficiency on first batch. slightly stronger beer than anticipated. good flavor overall, mouthfeel was a bit "thin" maybe due to higher alcohol? --
