Batch 10: Papa Bear Porter: Tasting Day

This beer turned out well. Re-pitching before bottling paid off--too well; the beer ended up over-carbonated for the style. Next time, I'll use considerably less corn sugar, perhaps as low as 2 oz. Because of the carbonation issue, the beer tasted a bit too acrid. Overall, though, the beer tasted good. The vanilla is balanced nearly perfectly with the coffee/chocolate notes. I was proud to give these gifts!
