Tasting: Alcohol nose is quite evident at racking to keg though after a month it had blended nicely. Big chocolate in the aroma with lower coffee notes. Creamy quality comes out in the flavor, melding with the aroma characteristics. The final gravity was higher than planned at 1.021 but it is not overly sweet (roast and alcohol seem to balance nicely) or overly thick. Can't think of any changes I want to make to it.
