Just wanted to share my most recent recipe. It came out absolutely wonderful.
It will bring tears to you eyes and inches to your waist!
Absolutely wonderful. Very, very full body. Chocolate malt comes thru nicely.
Nice balance between hops and sweetness. Great creamy head (brown color).
Head and mouthfeel of a Guiness, taste of a porter. Best beer I've ever made!
Sure am glad I made 8 gallons of this one!
