Burchell's London Porter

Recipe added: 08/16/99
This recipe was made for a friend to introduce him to the
world of brewing. I am very pleased with the results. It
has a nice, full body with a dense creamy head that lasts
until the final drop is left in the glass. A floral hop and
roasted aroma are noticeable first. The flavor is a warm
roasted, clean and slightly chocolately taste with a nice
hop bitterness at the end that sticks to the back of your
tounge. If I had it to do over, I don't believe I would
change a thing!
