Beware of the possibility of an extreme boil-over. I will review taste as soon as it is properly aged.

I tasted my batch using this recipe, and its ummm.... delicious! Especially on a nitro tap, though still good on CO2. Creamy, sweet, proper color, its like a cross between Boddington's and Caffrey's to my mouth.
