Notes:

Pours with lots of head and a dark amber color. If you pour aggressively it’s a very huge head. The head stays around for the whole glass.

Early on it had a fruit punch taste. After another few weeks, that taste has died down some. It has a chewy feel in the mouth and it’s slightly warming. Finishes very dry. It’s malty, strong caramel/toffee taste.

8/26/2013 – Alcohol is standing out now in the aftertaste. Heavy caramel flavor. It’s too biting for the bittering number, drop the minerals (Epsom) for sure it lingers in the mouth afterward, the fact it finished so dry might also accent this. Need more hops/dry hops to balance out the alcohol.

10.30.2013 – I can definitely tell the bittering difference between a 60 minute addition and 20 minutes only. Much more firm bitterness, which I like better.
