* (can’t be certain, much sampling going on during brew day)

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs 2-row
  • 0.75 lb Crystal 120L
  • 0.5 lb Chocolate malt
  • 0.25 lb Black patent
  • 3.3 lbs Amber LME
  • 32 oz pure maple syrup
  • 1 lb natural clover honey
  • 1.75 oz Galena (13.2%a)
  • 1 oz Cascade (7.5%a)
  • WLP007 dry English ale yeast

160 degree tea of all grains in 5.5 gallon boil water.

Addition of LME, syrup and honey prior to boil.

Schedule:

  1. 1 oz Galena at 60
  2. 0.75 oz Galena at 30
  3. 1 oz Castade at 2

WLP007 yeast pitched from vial, not in starter.

Color is pitch black yet pours clean and clear. No head but mild carbonation on the tongue. Little nose, though slight hints of maple syrup present. Very smooth, light to moderate body. More maple on the tongue with charred grain notes and light malt sugars. Bitter, but up front only. Finish is clean with lingering bitterness. This one will be quite good given time to mature.
