Taste Notes

This is a great beer. At a recent club meeting, a few guys suggested this is closer to a Porter than a Brown, mainly because it is pretty dark. However, it tastes more like a Brown. While I will likely brew this exact recipe many times, here are two changes I plan on trying just for fun: - Use WLP090 San Diego Super Yeast in place of WLP001 - Replace half of the English Chocolate malt (450L) with Pale Chocolate to lighten up the color and add more of a toasted nut character Either way, this beer will go quickly, it's that good. Cheers!
