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!
