I have also brewed this recipe using WLP002 English Ale Yeast. That gives it a slightly sweeter flavor.

I had a brew day coming up and didn't have anything in particular I wanted to make. I chose this recipe based on nothing more than a random click. I don’t consider myself a stout drinker at all. I tend to stick with the lighter beers. I intended this to be a learning experience more than anything. After bottle conditioning for 2 weeks I tried it and was not at all impressed. It was bland and boring. Just unimpressive, I figured I did something wrong in the brew process. So I set the beer aside and moved on to my next brew day. Four Months later while re-organizing my beer closet I ran across the 2 cases of beer. I put a few in the fridge and drank them later that evening. It was a completely different beer than I had originally remembered. The flavor I was expecting was now there. It ended up being one of my more popular beers. I will be making this again.
