Liberty Pale Ale (batch 44) and bottling Framboise (batch 43)

Bottled Stout and Framboise

Tuesday night I bottled up my oatmeal stout I made.  Let’s just say it starts like a Guiness and finishes with a smoky bitter taste.  I won’t blame anyone if they don’t enjoy it.  I think it will be an OK drink, but not what I was hoping for (my next one will be brewed …
