Bottled this last night and tried a sample. This is showing a great deal of promise.
3-6 weeks and this should come around nicely.

Well I gave into temptation and had a sample. My brother was a bartender for 20 years and a true beer snob, His words were, "GODDA**, thats good."

It's only 2 weeks in the bottle and is very close to Newcastle.

This one's a keeper.

I apologize folks, I've had real life issues and have been away for awhile.

This brew really does improve with age. The last of this was sacrificed on New Years Eve and got compliments from everyone who tried it. It ended up smoothing out to a very silky, malty balanced sweetness. The hops were just right, just enough to hit you on the back of your tongue, but not get in the way of the malt.

FYI, this turned out to have a bit more alcohol than planned, about 7%, but was hidden very well. When I bottled this, I conditioned it in the fridge.

This was my very first all mine recipe. I'm very proud of it.

Let me know how it turns out for you.

I wish I would have seen this thread. I did a 2.5 gallon Porter recipe that has the exact same proportion of ingredients (did extract with light DME) as this recipe just cut in half. Well needless to say my porter now tastes like Newcastle at bottling. So yeah, in a weird way I have tried this recipe out and it's good!
