Really happy with this beer, hence the db addition.
May go a good bit heavier on the Dry Hop addition next time although this is so well balanced I could easily do it the same way again.
Cheers

Sure, it's carbing up in the keg now.

I came 10 points under my OG due to a hellish sparge, so it's not as IPA as I would like, but it's very tasty so far.
Looking forward to some bubbles in it.

Tried taking a photo of this last night, but after 6 pints the world became slippery in my eyes and I had to give up.

Will try again tonight on the first pour...

How dark did this actually end up? I'm keen to do a Black IPA but want it to actually be black like Stout. ie. Between 60 - 70 EBC...

You just want it to look black, or taste black?

I fine grind carafa special if I can get it. I then added it slowly at mash out until I get the color I wanted. I got a nice dark porter color. Different recipe.

Mine ended up looking pretty much exactly like Coke.
I sent Nige 2L of it in a coke bottle. It looked the real deal.

I Plan on brewing this again soon (and not telling my mates this time... bastards)

Speak of the devil!

I have this on tap right now. Lovely drop, It has quite a lot of roast character to it, I would almost call it a hoppy porter. Certainly not a bad thing, but next time I will add the chocolate malt into the last 10 minutes of the mash so that I only extract the colour and not the flavour. I also wouldn't be afraid of upping the aroma hops by 50% and mashing at 64C to get a slightly drier finish.
