Hey mate, looks tasty.

If your shooting for a Brown Porter id up the Mash temp a bit more (loose some alc in the process) and wind up with a more lush mouthfeel and creaminess. Or else cram some more dark choc malt (as much as the pale choc again) and make it robust!

Personally I wouldn't be upping the mash temp 66c is fine.
I too would be adding some dark choc as well, but it really depends on what you're trying to achieve flavour wise.

cheers Ross

Rather than upping your Mash temp, why not add some golden oats to complement those malted oats...
Would give you a velvety mouthfeel...

First Porter so I'll give both the straight chocolate and the golden oas a crack. Why not.............I'll tack back a bit on the caraaroma.
