Well I just searched around and molasses is supposed to have a very strong flavor in beer, apparently.

BeerSmith puts it at 5% Max in batch.

Stupid question: I was building this in Beersmith, for a brew next weekend. What style would you throw this in to? American Amber doesn't work.

What do you mean by "doesn't work?"

When I was building my pumpkin ale recipe in beer smith, I used Amber Ale. Do you mean that the "style" scale is off for hops? Because I just ignored that and created the recipe with all the other stylistic aspects of Amber, minus the IBU range.

yeah, that's basically what I mean. Hops are too low, and the gravity is too high. Not a big deal at all, I just wondering if it fit better into a different style.

This would most certainly be 21A - Spice/Herb/Vegetable Beer

Also, came across Sam Adams Octoberfest and as I was thinking, "Hmm, it's that time of year" I noticed their fall variety pack. Had to pick it up.

Right now I'm enjoying their Harvest Pumpkin Ale. It's not bad but their version is over-spiced and lacks on the biscuit/toasty malts that I love from my recipe.

It's inspired me to get this brew off the ground ASAP. Time to check for Libby's every time I go to the grocery store
