Ended up with a little more than I wanted.
Taste: really nutty wort with toffee and coffee candy flavors. Bitter roasty. Very nice. Think it's going to turn out carmaly but I really didn't set out to do a dry stout so there you go... I wanted something more in between but I really think I wanted some form of dry stout. Not sure though! This is my first stout so. We'll see. Lingerling flavors: coffee roast and super dark chocolate milk.
Not sweet, roasty, coffee, smells a little carmely. More coffee than anything. I like that. There's some astringency but it could be due to young beer. This brew session was pretty spot on. The only thing I can think of is my thermometer calibration or this damn hard ass water.
1.051 = 12.6
Gravity is too high, but it doesn't seem like it didn't ferment out. Not sure what's going on. Could be the milk sugar that is freaking out my refractometer.
1.052 = 12.9
Didn't ferment out or I didn't account for milk sugar. Tastes like it did ferment out, however, I know it didn't do enough. Probably based on my way over gravity starter that I've been following for fucking forever. Anyway, tastes pretty good as is. Don't worry, make it better next time.
Nose - Sweet coffee, almost like Vietnamese coffee. Chocolate coffee, and toffee notes.
Start - Pretty sweet up front. There's a little roasty bitterness which is quite nice. A little effervescence from the secondary.
Mids - Mids are more bitter with the sweetness balancing out. Body is pretty good. Not as full as it should but it's the most I've brewed before. Milk sugar helped on that one.
Finish - Bitter chocolate and cofee at the end. Ends dry. I like it.
