Taste NotesAbsolutely delicious, clean, with chocolate flavor. Make this one again.

Judges notes category 11B, Souther English Brown:
Dave Cole, Proefessional Brewer, Epic Brewing
Aroma 11/12: Very nice noise, caramel malt & dark fruites slow nicely.
Appearance 3/3: Nice dark, dark mahogany color, Nice head retention.
Flavor 17/20: Sweet dark malts dominate, dark fruits. Very nice. Maybe a touch too much toasty for style but like it.

Chris Thackeray BJCP Mead Judge
Aroma 9/12: Good aromas per style, moderately fruity and malt.
Appearance 3/3: Color is per style, Clarity is good, Head retention is nice.
Flavor 16/20: Malty flavor throughout. Malt/hop levels are to style.
Mouthfeel 5/5: Great body, and great carbonation.
Overall Impression 8/10: I love your beer. The color, aromas, flavors are perfet to 'southern english brown' styles. Tasts great.
Malt extract is Muntons. Fermented with the house set to 73 deg.
My recommendations for the future:
Ferment a bit cooler
Use a yeast starter
Reduce black patent from 4 oz to 2 or 3 oz
Condition with 1 cup DME
