Target is Boone Valley Halligan Porter. Website says IBU = 35. I have no clone to go by. Only my memory of the taste. Chocolate forward, nice roasted barley black malt ending. THIS BEER IS A WINNER. VERY GOOD BALANCED PORTER. Very close to Halligan Porter.
I don't normally use LME but recently bought a can of Brewer's Best (Cooper's) Dark LME, not thinking at all. If anything, Light LME would've been more useful. This recipe was concocted to make the best use of the Dark LME - an alternate version of my Robust Porter. The boil time, bittering hop variety and hop schedule may change before brew day.
