Really good!
This was my first stout and hoping to mimic Young's Double Chocolate Stout. This was also my first attempt of personalizing the recipe. I followed the recipe mostly but added 1 lb of lactose milk sugar at the end of the boil. I also added 3/4 of 1 dram of English Toffee flavor oil just before kegging it with beer gas. It really came out great and would highly recommend it. It's not overly sweet and has a nice balance of coffee and chocolate undertones with just a hint of the toffee. Next time I would use a little more chocolate and the full dram of toffee flavoring.

A little too bitter
I made this expecting a milk chocolate taste, but it had more of a bitter chocolate taste. It just wasn't for me. I will try a milk chocolate next time and hopefully get the taste I was after.

Good beer, but mine doesn't compare well to Youngs... how is it supposed to? Chose this recipe as the only beer my wife likes is Young's DCS. Brewed the DME version ... came out as a great beer in its own right - but my batch doesn't compare to Youngs. It has more bitterness and not as much coffee/chocolate flavor as the Youngs. Plus the "mouthfeel" is a tad thinner. So I wonder if 13D is supposed to be more bitter than Youngs? Regardless, I liked this beer enough that I'll brew another batch after gaining more experience to see if there's any difference.

brewed this on 2/15. Kegged it on 3/10 with the full amount of priming sugar and pulled a 12 pack (for sharing/saving) from the keg before purging and sealing it. Let let it condition for a couple weeks and hooked up the CO2 for serving. Had a pint last night, 3/26, and it is awesome. Will have to think long and hard about sharing those bottles now.

Bottled this one 3 weeks ago and it is more than I could have asked for. Added cocoa nibs to the secondary.... Has a wonderful bitter sweet chocolate aftertaste.... Would like to come up with a way to get more carbonation, but that may come with a bit more age.... Would also like better head retention so I will add the head retention supplement next time... It is best enjoyed at about 55 degrees.

Brewed the extract version and agree with some of the other reviews. This beer is awesome! I have tried a few bottles after a month of bottle conditioning and think it will continue to get better with age. Right now there could be better mouth feel. Had good notes of chocolate that was not overpowering. Great color and aroma. Everyone who has tried it loves it and it is not even at its peak yet!

Fantastic. Pitch black, lasting tan head, modest chocolate notes, slightly sweet (I'll explain). I did the partial mash kit. I was let the mash temp get a bit high, hence the high final gravity of 1.026 and sweetness. But to be honest I wouldn't change it. I'm sure it is great as a dryer beer but I'm very happy with how mine turned out. I brewed it on 10/13 and stirred up the cake two weeks later after the gravity failed to drop. I emailed AHS and they assured me it would be fine... they were right. BTW, I kegged mine, I recommend that your jump to kegging it makes all beers even better. Cheers!
