Spice Mix. Note, you only want to use A QUARTER!:

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground ginger

This recipe is roughly based on Jamil's Old Ale and his Winter Ale. I also added half of the base as Morris Otter since it sounded interesting and worth trying

2013-09-30. Main:

Below are my notes. Again I use italics to try to differentiate between what I wrote at the time and comments

I will update this later and as I go. Maybe I'll come back and comment too

2013-10-22 Bottling:

Wes helped me bottle while we were also brewing an APA (Beer 7). So the timing on this was more spread out.

2013-12-07 Tasting Notes:

I tried a bottle while I was brewing. I was actually pretty happy with it. Ididn't taste any spice ormolasses but it still had a nice flavor. A bit harsh in the throat but really not too bad. Especially since it is 9.2% ABV. Ididn't get any aroma but it tasted kind of like a dark brown ale but there wasn't really any roasty-ness. I will come back with more notes next time I have one
