Followed fattyliver's but added the full 6 lbs of Amber LME, one whirflock tablet, the Lyle's syrup, and dark rock candi instead of the liquid (my bad). Used a 3L starter so all should be well.

Hops in the suspension for strange reason or maybe it's the proteins. I used whirflock in this and the last brew. I don't really care and as far as I'm concerned I'd rather get more beer with a little more solids than less beer and less solids. It should compact out over 3-4 weeks. This picture is taken about an hour after pitching the yeast.

Tasted a bottle after 5 weeks in 70 degrees. I put it in the freezer for 10 minutes. Alcohol barely noticeable for 12.1%. Dark fruits, some yeastiness, little earthy hop foreground, good carb. Head retention will take some time to manifest. This beer is still very young after brewing on 2/24/12 and this first taste is 4/26/12.

I used blue caps for a nice finishing touch and no labeling required. Thought I would share a picture and link to where I got them. Thanks to both the OP and Fatty Liver for the recipe!
