Stock's Outer Darkness Stout

Source: Jason Stock
Recipe added: 03/04/00

This is a thick, rich and chocolatey stout! This stuff is black as night and very opaque. I held a glass of it up to the sun at about 2pm one afternoon and could not see any light penetrating it! Be careful, this sucker blew the lid off of my plastic fermenter..what a mess! Ferment cool if you can. It tended to be a little sweet when young..but that got better with age. I'll probably cut back the lactose a little when I make this again.
