no merlot helmet. it was my Falconer's AL. and the Belgian Session was a double volume f-up. the recipe started as a Belgian Dubbel that ended up about 75% more volume than I wanted. but I ran out of propane so I decided to re-boil the next day when I could get more. the mess up was I turned the burner on with the pot on already. went downstairs to get the wort & started dumping it in. those aluminum core pots get hot fast. as soon as I started dumping, it all started evaporating and caramelizing on the bottom. then I thought too much had boiled off, so I added more water (about 2 gallons) to compensate. I ended up about 1 3/4 gallons over volume. again. I said F-it and fermented it. and it's a tasty mistake. not one I want to make again, but I was pleasantly surprised.

4.3%- nice maltiness- mouthfull of caramel, mellow mild chocolate, slight roast, a little dry/woody bourbon barrel even, some spice, some citrus bitter on the end. One of the better handfull of Irish reds ive had. Pretty shure Ill pick up the irish stout next, their irish(american style?) pale ale was really good also. Maybe cuz American style beer is awesome? Or are we are just supersized bigger is better- freaks?
