I tend to lean every beer I make towards the hoppy end(and usually beyond) of the spectrum, so this looks a little lacking in hops to me. Other than that it looks like a solid beer. The dark sugars should make it wonderful. How did the wort look/smell/taste?

Looks and tastes moderately good, although there's a slightly bitter twinge on the end that displeases me. I think I got the steep temp too high (165) when I had to step away for a moment. Oh, well. Wait and see, right?
