Description
It's an Irish Red I created by tweaking a B3 recipe. Called it a robust porter because I thought that's where it fits best in the BJCP.

Recipe Details
Tasting Notes Moderate hop aroma mixed with an overtly malty nose. Subtle sweetness from the Special B overlaying the overall maltiness, moderate hop bitterness as it finishes. Would brew again, but shoot for higher ABV.
