I made this beer about a year ago using the same recipe from Extreme Brewing. Well I still have about 1/2 to 2/3 of a keg left.
I've had the midas touch before and from what I remember I thought I liked it. This gave me a good enough reason to brew it. It turns out I'm not a fan anymore, although my friends have been enjoying it.
I did a side by side taste test. I nailed everything but the nose. Mine has the grape nose but not in the same way as the original.
I will say that this beer needs a lot of time to round out. It has greatly improved with age. So be patient and wait.
