Default My First Brew Story

It's been about a week and a half since I bottled my beer. Everyone told me to keep me first beer simple, but I thought I'd try something fun. I made a Coffee milk stout with french oak. Today was my first glass. I tried at room temperature and it tasted great! Very balanced flavor. Roasty and hoppy, but not too hoppy as the lactose seemed to smooth out the beer. It had a very clean taste and left some great lacing on my glass. I'm excited that my first beer didn't bomb. My next batch will be an Apple Pale Ale.

Thanks. I plan to save most of my beer so it can age at least a few more weeks.
