I am drinking this right now, rather tasty. However, I might make a version with a different hop in the mix, EKG perhaps. The single hop is very nice, but not as complex as the malt backbone. I love it, but if you don't like Fuggles, you won't like it, they come through very strong.

A few more moths in the bottle and this brew is very nice.

Caramel complex undertones mix nicely with the earthy spiciness of the Fuggles.

I left 1/2 of a 22oz open in the fridge over night and the next day the slight oxidization somehow wasn't a bad thing with this brew. It added some sherry notes to it, and the almost zero carbonation really brought out the malt backbone.

Sounds interesting. A few years later, do you have any more thought on this like what would you do different or the same? Would you still change the hop profile?
