I ran out of everything but Munich malt, and this was the result. This is the simplest, and by all accounts, one of the most delicious brews I've made. Proof that a recipe doesn't have to be complicated to be great!

Big malt, dark fruit, cotton candy, crisp and smooth. Kind of like a Belgian Doppelbock...
Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder.
