I can't wait to sample this beer; I racked to secondary on 1-10-04, and the tiny bit i could get from the racking cane, after filling my secondary carboy, tasted fantastic: notes of chocolate, smooth oatmeal, coffee, and noticeable but not too strong hop bitterness. If you try this recipe, please email me and let me know how it turns out!!
