Looks delicious. What kind of beer is it?

Its a Stout. Probably doesn't fit any beer styles but it is tasty!

JK. Sorry I couldn't resist the Big Lebowski reference. Congrats on your first brew! I only started brewing about 6 months ago myself and I hope you find the same amount of satisfaction in drinking your own brews as I do.
