Racked my stout to secondary in my 3 gallon carboy. Roughly half a gallon left over. Will experiment with coffee on this remainder.
Surprised by the dry flavor from the flaked barley. Wishing I could put this beer on tap. Will probably give it two or three weeks to condition before bottling.
Color: Deep brown red, like sherry
Smell: Flaked barley, rye, alcohol, red wine, toastiness
Taste: Dry barley, roasty, medium bodied, medium bitterness, bitter coffee, sour or tartness
