After the first keg, I can say without a doubt.....this is the best beer I have ever brewed. Outstanding, oaked for more than a month, this will hold it's own with anything I have ever tried. Bravo Kal ......this is a real winner. I want to have this on tap year around. Thanks for a great system and even better beers. The American Pale Ale is also one of my best.....wow, it doesn't get better than this!

Getting ready to brew this to have ready for the fall/winter of 2020. Any updates or suggestions for other additions in place of the oaked bourbon cubes. I love this beer as is, so I really don't think there is a need for much change. Still have a few bottles brewed in 2018 and they have turned out to be amazing beers.

No updates or suggestions from me. I like the beer as it is! Someone else may have different suggestions.
Keep in mind that per my suggestions on oaking, you need to start soaking that oak a good month or so before you brew.

Brewed this again 3 weeks ago. Excellent recipe. Kegged last weekend. Hit 11.7% ABV. It's resting on nitro. Tasted yesterday, it's young and still a little hot but delicious. I added 2 vanilla beans and 2oz. of cocoa nibs at the end of the boil. I did that on the last batch and it really enhanced the coffee note. Thanks again Kal for all the great recipes. Keep Calm and Brew on.

Kal this is one of your best recipes. I entered it in the Shamrock Open in Raleigh.NC and received a 2nd place in the Stouts group with a 40.5 rating. I have only 4 bottles left for some special occasion in the future. Excellent beer....thank you
