Shot In The Dark could best be described as an Imperial Mocha Stout.  A relatively high starting gravity makes it a rich and strong brew, with the intensity of flavor that one would expect from an Imperial Stout.  The use of coffee, cocoa, and brown sugar adds complex chocolate, java, and molasses overtones.

Kit includes the most appropriate malt extract, hops (measured by HBUs, not just weight), coffee, cocoa, priming sugar, caps, grains and a grain bag, and an appropriate liquid yeast culture (from White Labs). Because of its high starting gravity, this kit also includes an additional 1/2 pound of malt extract and instructions for making a 1/2 gallon yeast starter.

As this kit contains a live, liquid yeast culture, WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU PURCHASE AN ICE PACK to help preserve the yeast during shipping.  You will also want to open the package immediately upon receipt, and refrigerate the hops and yeast until brewing.

    I have gotten a lot of praise for this beer.

    The first month of drinking the coffee was a little strong. But after that the beer really mellowed and was amazing.

    The coffee/chocolate/stout flavor and aroma blend perfectly. My only problem is I will be out of it before I brew my next batch.

    I agree with Jerry’s review. A friend made this and brought it over….it is amazing. I could go for just a touch more carbonation, but the taste was balanced and perfect. I will be trying this for my next brew!!
