This has got to be the best stout I have ever made. Since I have made
the move to all-grain, this will be the only stout recipe for me. The
flavour is dry and what you would expect from a stout. The rye and the
cara-pils has made it very thick, just like Guiness. If I have to adjust
anything, I would add more hops...say about another 1/2 oz of Fuggles
for the 1 hour boil. This stout is thick, very dark, overly smooth and
won't stay in my glass for very long.
