Mustache Envy Belgian Stout Limited Edition Extract Beer Recipe Kit
A tangle of Belgian yeast dominates the nose, intertwining fruity esters and restrained phenolics. Mere whiskers of hop bitterness balance assertive roasted malt character. Its thick body and wooly mouthfeel warm the cheeks with substantial alcohol. Moderate effervescence combs through an oaky finish for a dense, distinguished, well-groomed pint.

This came out great. I soaked the oak cubes in a Four Roses Boubon for a week or more, before adding them to the secondary fermentor. Nice brew, and smooth for a 8.1
This beer is phenomenal! Great aroma, color and taste. Would not hesitate to brew this one again!
This is my third time making this kit. Always comes out great. Complex flavors, thanks to the malts, Belgian yeasts, and the oak chips. Perfect brew for winter sipping (and some of the cost goes to a good cause).
Tasted good going into secondary.
I will definitely grab another kit if they sell these again this year. This was my 2nd kit from Northern, and I'm very impressed. The smell is amazing but the taste throws you off - which is still delicious, just not what you'd expect from the scent. Next time, I'm going to try soaking the oak chips in whiskey for 2 weeks before adding them in secondary to give it more of a whiskey barrel aged sort of flavor.
