Transferred to a secondary after 2.5weeks. I think I'm going to let it age for 2-4 weeks in the secondary before bottling.

FG was 1.012. ABV 7.5%

It smelled great. Pears from the yeast, floral hops, raisin and caramel.

It tasted pretty good too. I think this will be a good beer eventually.

This turned out to be pretty darn good. I'm trying my first bottle today and I'm very pleased with the result. I'd make it again and wouldn't change much. Maybe a little more hops and specialty grains, but not much.

The special B wasn't as prominent as I thought it was going to be. The amber candi syrup is delicious, but I may try to make my own next time.
