This was fermented at the low end of the Nottingham scale (55-60 F). Then 2 weeks in the secondary. You have to let this one sit in the bottle for 2 months otherwise it is way too sweet. Unless you like a real sweet beer.
This was brewed to please my BMC friends and has the bonus of knocking them out with the high ABV.
This has become my all night drinker during long poker sessions.
