Molly Stout

Molly's birthday was just a few days ago and this momentous occasion called for a good spring beer to offer party guests. Sadie was kind enough to grace the brewhouse as I brewed Molly Stout:

The beer is ok - it kind of has that nutty taste I'm not too fond of in browns and darker beers, but usually only on the first few sips.

I put some cold brew coffee into half of it, but I haven't got around to kegging that portion, so I'll have to report back on if that was a good idea.
