Wow, just finished my brown sugar molasses porter and tasted what I used to measure the O.G... man it was bitter. Pretty surprising because almost every other wort I've tasted has been sweet and porters aren't supposed to be super bitter...

Hmmm... guess I'll see what my next sample tastes like in 2 weeks.

brown sugar molasses porter sounds absolutely amazing! What recipe is this? Extract or all grain? I love dark beers and this sounds awesome.h

Ahh I've been meaning to pick that up since my last trip to Barnes & Noble had a line @ the register that I didn't feel like waiting on.
