Kegging My Winter Dark Ale – 11/8/12

I kegged my latest brew tonight. My goal was to make some kind of dark winter ale. The beer was brewed with dark chocolate malt, carmel rye malt, and crystal 120. Northern Brewer and Nugget hops were used in the boil to balance the maltiness. OG came out to be 1.07 which I was very happy with. It sits at 7.9% abv after fermentation and tastes great. It has notes of dark chocolate and coffee and the hops give it a nice finish. I made a little video of me kegging it tonight for anyone who has never seen the process. Check it out!
