Beer Style: Robust Porter (12B)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons
I'm happy to announce a new brew. It's Matt and Jon's Hell Gate Porter. I'm very excited 'cuz it's like my fourth batch and tastes the best so far. It's velvety smooth. Opaque. Excellent hop aroma and flavor. The bitterness is rounded out by a roasted buttery sweetness (from the specialty grains and molasses). Anyway, I had my first taste on Wednesday and it was sufficient to give me liquid courage to propose to Leann. She said yes. (Sorry to brag about myself and all...couldn't help it though, I'm so excited!!).
