    Sort of a clone, sort of my own take on things. For those who haven't had Black Sun, it's a hoppy stout that isn't bitter (like a lot of FFF brews). It's got some nice coffee, citrus, and pine aromas, and chocolate, coffee, citrus, and pine flavors. It's got a nice, smooth body and is extremely drinkable.

    Here's what I have right now after multiple tweaks.

    That would be because that's mine! lol. Check the usernames. But I decided to scrap the Simcoe for Centennial for various reasons. Mostly because Black Sun really doesn't have that Simcoe flavor IMO. Not a bad idea about the Carafa II, I might have to make an adjustment.

    I have two bottles of Black Sun left that I'm going to try to save, so I'll do a comparison.
