Sorry to keep you guys hanging, it was my first post so I figured you guys would have just ignored me! Thankfully I am definitely hooked on brewing and many batches later I think I did good for a first batch. I just updated the recipe with some post-post changes.

Anyways, the beer is awesome. I have named it Achilles Strong Ale, its a bit hoppier than most American Strong Ales (on the Arrogant Bastard side of the fense, in a good way!) and I love it, as do my friends. The oak aged batch turned out REALLY well, I have since done some more oak aging beers that have been stellar.

Its got a complex lightly biscuity malty caramel backbone, with a fantastic clean bitterness and some complex hop flavors and nose. I'm going to brew it again soon with some probable minor changes (hop selection) seeing as I only have one bottle left!
