Description
Easy drinking and simple to make. My version seemed to be a little darker than predicted. WLP 007 seemed to floculate very well and formed a nice cake on the bottom of the primary. ( I saved it and used it in a subequent porter)

Recipe Details
Tasting Notes Nice Carmel Flavor. Modest bitterness, modest hop flavor and aroma. Was very good with dinner. Flavor was strong enough to come through while eating barbeque but but still mild enough so it didn't become the "main dish"
