Default First Porter

bbp-shrunk.jpgI just cracked my first attemp at a Porter and am VERY happy. I brewed it as a Black Butte Porter clone and had lots of problems with the fermentation. It did not want to stop! I think I transferred it to the secondary too soon, it had a stuck fermentation due to cold temps in the house. So with a couple suggestions from Orfy and a few others I have a great beer that I actually think is better than BBP. Its is very drinkable and has a very smooth finish. Thanks for the help. This picture was taken after a few good swigs and then I got inspired to snap a shot and share my joy.

Looks more like sip-lines to me.

ok, ok, a couple sips
I just realized in the pic what you see as sip lines are actually lines that are part of the glass itself...not that it matters of course. I don't think I have ever sipped a beer that many times.
