Homebrew: Snopen Dog Mocca Stout

| 2 Comments

Today was a brewday again and this time I brewed a (Imperial) Breakfast Stout, i.e. an Imperial Oatmeal Stout, spiced with coffee and chocolate. Everything went surprisingly well and I ended up with an OG of 1.091, so am aiming for about 9% ABV. I will add some more ground coffee and cacao nibs to the secondary, after fermentation is complete. The hop bitterness in this one is a bit lower than what is recommended for the style, but that is because the coffee and chocolate contribute with some bitterness as well. Below is the recipe and a picture of the hop and spice additions.
