Big Red A.S.S.

Dark red with a touch of spice and roast, hopped to hell and back, this beer would have been my entry in the "new grains" contest. As it turned out, I couldn't get off of work for that particular meeting, so I had to drink all 5 gallons myself! Actually, I did bring a growler to the July shop brew/LACF check-in, where it was well-received.
