Notes

This recipe is nearly the same recipe out of the John Palmer book - "Brewing Classic Styles".
Items I changed or added:
+Melanoidin malt - was not in original recipe
+Increased Honey Malt from 6oz to 8 oz
+Increased Bittering Hops from .75 oz to 1 oz
+The base malt was originally only British malt but I am a poor bastard and I didnt want to go that route so I split it up. It called for slightly more than a pound less than I have but wanted the gravity to be high and still be in style.

Tasting Notes:
3/25 - Let this beer sit for a while. I had tastes of it a month ago and it was still young and sweet. The malt really came into its own and was worth the wait. You get just a touch of the really dark caramel/crystal flavor with a lot of sweet bready taste from the Maris Otter and Honey Malt. Would make this again seasonally.

This is a very sweet beer that has some nutty tastes to it with age. I personally am not a huge fan of this style but this beer went well in the winter months.
