the original recipe called for 6 oz of pale chocolate but substituted 3oz carafe 1 instead of the chocolate and it turned into a brown instead of red but was good nun the less, smokey flavor was there and after getting used to it, turned into a great evening sipper

I had to use a 5 micron filter with this beer because of syrupy sediment but this beer turned out very high alcohol and a very good flavor, I can't believe how quick this gets to you
