I'd pay money for this at my local brew pub!
A friend of mine recommended this and he was spot on! Tasty, sweet and with a little bit of hop flavoring. No bitterness. Seems to be getting better as it gets a few weeks of aging on it. I'll definitely be doing this one again!

Add some cacao nibs to the secondary
This was my 4th or 5th brew, I added 4 oz of cacao nibs to the secondary for 8 days or so, and it came out great. Really wanted to see how it would be after a few more months, but it just didn't last. Will have to make it again soon and tuck some away on the closet to age

This was my first milk stout kit. I added 2oz. of cold pressed espresso coffee to the secondary. Came out amazing! I want to brew it again and add more espresso and maybe an additional flavor. Highly recommend! Will brew again!

Wow...just wow.
Before I started this hobby, my favorite beer was a stout from a Louisiana brewery called Turbodog. This is the closest thing I have had to that. This beer is smooth liquid chocolate goodness.

It is easily my favorite kit that I have done off this site so far.

Only complaint that I have is that I would like more carbonation, but that is mostly attributable to bottle conditioning. I can't wait to taste this off a keg.

The kit is easy, and the beer is great. This is a must brew. I am off to order another....
