Fabulous recipe. For various reasons, I could only eke out 1.023ish in FG and it's still good, at 4 weeks. I thought my OG would be higher than it ended up so I actually overbittered it, so maybe that lends itself to me not noticing the higher FG. In any case, the beer looks gorgeous. It's dark but it's actually surprisingly clear if you hold it up to the light. The head is a nice, creamy light brown. Yooper, you were not kidding: this head really does last and last!
I was especially impressed with the lacing.
Thanks for the recipe. I'm sure it will be enjoyed on St. Patrick's day if I can keep myself out of them til then.
P.S. please excuse the fruity tapestry in the background; that was the only place with any light.
