Taste Notes

A little thin. Slight chocolate taste. Low to medium hop bitterness and flavor. Easy drinking though and kind of tasty. Pehaps the Burton ale pulled out all the hop bitterness and the warm fermentation didn't help. I actually like drinking this with perhaps a touch of carapils, and little more sweetness (mash 2 degrees higher) and a tiny little more bitterness, pretty damn good!

Notes

The fermentation is pretty warm and the yeast blew right out the lock at the end of the first day. Had to but on a blow off tube. This yeast is aggressive!
