What do you think of this Coffeehouse Porter?

<< < (5/5)

Brewed this one up and it came in at 1.061! Threw the black malts in the mash just before sparge. I put a little coffee in after flameout. Wort temp was about 170ish. I'll add cold steeped coffee in secondary or at kegging. I plan on soaking the nibs in vodka or maybe a little bourbon for a couple days then throwing the whole mess in the secondary. Thanks for the help...

Kegged this up on Thursday. Didn't use all the steeped coffee. Reserved the rest for kegging but it wasn't needed. We are really enjoying this beer. When I kegged it the coffee was quite powerful. When I sampled on Saturday the coffee had mellowed and the chocolate was faint (still not quite carbonated). Last night we hit it pretty hard! ;D. The chocolate and coffee have blended nicely. The final gravity was 1.061 and the finished gravity was 1.020. Thought it would finish lower but I'm glad it didn't. It could use a little more mouthfeel and/or sweetness to be perfect. I'll do this again next year for sure. Might add a little oats or even replace the kiln malt with some honey malt. Looking like we might hit this again tonite! Merry XMAS to all.....

Glad to hear it.  I'm sipping my coffee porter right now.
