The “Beaver Avenue Brewer’s Guild” (BABG) brewed this beer on January 10. I did some work on v1.0 of the recipe, I attached the recipe below.

I’m affectionately calling it Poseidon’s Wrath, a name first suggested as a taunt related to the snow this morning by Nikki.

Anyway, the beer went great. I believe made some adjustments based on using baker’s chocolate (decrease the hops because this adds bitterness), switched to a tsp. of cayenne pepper instead of Ancho and Serrano, and he planning on extracting vanilla beans, cocoa nibs, and cinnamon sticks for the secondary. All said, the brewday went extremely well and I think this recipe is going to work out great.
