This is the best beer I have ever tasted! That includes all homebrew and commercial beers. I like a variety of beer styles, but this one is a standout both overall and for its style.

A couple of notes for the would be brewer:
- There will be a huge amount of sediment after the primary ferment - about 4-5cm (1-1.5 inches), so racking into a secondary is a good idea.
- The large amount of grain may exceed the capacity of your lauter-tun, so you may need have an extra container ready during sparging.

I'll definitely be brewing this beer again. It was awesome.
