Taste NotesLooks and smells gorgeous. After 10 days in the bottle the finish is astringent. After 14 days the beer is much smoother. It is still bit and malty. Bitterness could be a bit higher, may want it sub out Cascade for Chinook or Centennial. the color and roastiness made the beer taste like a porter.
The NERHBC judges agreed the beer would have done much better as a porter. Too dark, too roasty. One judge wanted more pronounced hop flavor. Will enter the beer in another competition as a Brown Porter as the Little Person Porter.
For future batches I'll tweak the hops, ditch the molasses, and use a dark Crystal malt.
NotesHit mash temp on the nose. Smooth uncomplicated boil. Didn't chill wort for long enough, pitched vial of yeast at 90F. Bottled 8/23, FG 1.015, might have under attenuated due to under-pitching. Samples were exactly on point, toasty, sweet, and enough Cascade flavor came through. Primed with 1 cup Blackstrap Molasses.
