Barumba Bumba Ale

4 Nov

The title is an inside joke with our dog, Yoga

The beer is probably the best dark ale I ever made. It had no metallic taste or bitter twang, just a great roasty flavor that got amazing after 3 months in the bottle. Even though it was good early, the beer improved by leaps and bounds after some conditioning. Giving this beer a 90% and glad to learn some lessons about dark ales. They come out best when I use NO tap water in the mash, and very very little dark malts, shouldn’t except .25# for my taste.
