So I finally got my results back. I scored a 42 out of 50. Not bad, but not the best I can do. I got feedback like:
Great full body beer.
I really like this stout.
Beautiful creamy head
One of the best I have tasted.
Nice balance.
Oh I liked this one... @ 59 deg this was an EXCELLENT beer, I would LOVE to try it at 90* if you know what I mean.:)
They said I needed a little more hop bitterness.... I can do that!


This beer won 3rd place last year, 2nd this year,,,,, I have my sights on next year! :cross:
Cheers
JJ
