Entered this one in NHC. Got some interesting results. Scored a 28.5 and the the main critique was too much roasted barley, too big, not enough maltiness, was called "almost a porter." I don't really see it. Maybe I can see the roastiness, but I like that. I would definitely not call this one a porter or anywhere near a porter...

I was thinking this one would be my top scorer...

Mine turned out great. FG around 1.013. This beer is fantastic. I love it. It was also very well received by my homebrew club.

Interesting comment. I don't find it that roasty at all

This is what I was thinking,

Perhaps a water issue? I find that water that is too hard can have a harsh bitter flavor that some might attribute to too much roasted barley

Going to be brewing this with a wild yeast that was collected under a fig tree. No idea what the yeast characteristics are except that it ferments clean and flocs well. Very excited.

Brewed this last night, OG was 1.036 instead of 1.035 but I think its because of my boil rate. Pitched 137 billion cells of wild yeast, I wish I had a bottle of the original recipe with Nottingham to compare but oh well. I'll let you guys know how it turns out!

I will need to see pics of the beer, and also a sample bottle sent to me for official stamp of approval testing

I wish I thought about taking a pic last night, the top of the beer had pretty large/slimy bubbles. If they are still there tonight I will be sure to take a pic and post.
