I planned to brew this batch on election day (took the day off), but the yeast was not ready.
The beer is a clone of Young's Double Chocolate stout, with cocoa powder in the boil and chocolate extract in the secondary.
No, it's not a chocolate stout because of Sen. Obama's election. I wanted to brew this for a long time and picked election day as a nice day off to do it on. The name, however, is a reference to David Allen Grier's "Hope and Change" mantra.
