After few months aging, it tastes fantastic. One of the best beers I have ever brewed. I will enter it in a competition in March. I would do late hop instead of dry hop next time.

I entered it as specialty beer in the 2012 World Cup of Beer in the Bay Area. Won the third place and recieved great praises for it.


Can't wait to try this.

It became a bit hoppier and darker so I entered it in the specialty category.
