I tastes good from the fermenting bucket ,I hope that is maintains threw the bottle carbonation. It is a repeat brew for me. The down sides are the yeast I got was not enough to push the fermenting I had to go to a local brew store and get a smack pack and yeast booster but then it took off. My SG was 1.074 before pitching the yeast and the end SG when bottling was 1.012 for a ABV of 7.61 . Before bottling it has a flavor that seemed to finish with a hint of Bourbon- I am hoping I still find this to be the case after carbonation . I will repeat this recipe I think. The only thing I did off recipe was steep the grains for 30 minutes instead of the recommended 15
