This was the first beer I brewed almost 4 years ago. Everyone that had it loved it, and I will definitely be making this one again.

ABV was a little higher than I was expecting, but not completely nuts. I think it ended up being around 7.5%ish.

Excellent flavor profile that got better as it aged.
