I should have known not to use that much cocoa. The 1st time I used chocolate it was a real dark Ghiradelli bar that didn't seem to do much. Next time I'll know better.
I can see where a good porter, like that really strong Sierra Nevada porter would make a difference. That stuff has some strong flavor in it. I have a couple of IPA's in the fridge, maybe I could add one to the bean boiling part next time. I know of a Mexican restaurant that uses Budweiser in their black beans and they're great.
I always let it set up overnight, it tastes better that way. This batch definitely did, but the sweetness remained. Can't take that out.
I'm not to disappointed though. After all it was a test. I'll learn from this like I do from every batch and hopefully the next one will be better.
That's my new slogan, wait until the next one, its going to be really good.
