This year’s batch of Blackout Jinx is a response from last year’s batch with an eye toward barrel-aging. A little sweeter of a base beer so that the beer can age longer in the barrel for a “fuller” experience as a whole (Currently aging in Willett and Elijah Craig barrels). But because the finished gravity was higher, I added less maple syrup to balance out the sweetness, so this year’s the maple plays more of a background role. I doubled the honey in the whirlpool because I liked @eastrockapiary honey so much. All in all, I’m much happier with this year’s Blackout Jinx and think it plays into more of an American Stout range rather than toeing the line of sweet stout, like last year’s.
