Notes
1/26/2010 Racked to secondary
- Tasted like ASS (hecnce the name), I can’t even swallow it (that’s what she said?)
- Not sure of the flavor. Maybe astringent. (Later on, I’m guessing it’s fusel alchol)
- Very strong flavor. Offensive. God have mercy on my soul.

2/12/2010 Bottling Day
- The beer has calmed down quite a bit. It might actually be drinkable.
- 17 days in the secondary probably did it some good.

3/5/2010 Open first bottle
- Tastes great. Good candidate for re-creating
- The aftertaste is a little bitter, but otherwise not to shabby.
