Whew! That is impressive. My biggest was 1.111, brewed on 11/11/11. It has just started to come into its own! That one was all Golden Promise. I have decided since that my sweet spot is 1.085- even with sugar. But that may just be me.

Just bumping this one last time as I finally have a proper sample to taste that has been chilled and carbonated. Man, this is good already. I'm really going to have to fight the urge to sit on it for a couple of years for it to age. Lots of MO bread crust going on, with some toffee and caramel. There's some nice stonefruit esters from the Yorkshire Square yeast strain. There's also a nice bit of acidity to help balance the viscous mouthfeel. It's definitely sweet, but not as syrupy as something like Thomas Hardy. I already get a bit of fig, but this one is going to rock once it gets a little age on it and starts to develop more of that dark fruit.
