Notes

Ferment at 62°F for two weeks, transfer to secondary and condition cool (50-55°F) for 3-4 weeks. Bottle and age at 50°F for 3 weeks.

The caramel and dark malt notes are well balanced by Goldings hop flavor and bitterness. There is a mild syrupy, molasses aftertaste that is pleasant, especially with the roasty notes.
