Alex and I review my "Even Odder Duck" homebrew

This is a very long overdue review of my homebrew. Based on a homebrew recipe that was in turn based on a 1901 Amsdell Brewing pre-prohibition porter recipe (made right here in Albany). Craig's recipe called for blending it with older beer, but I skipped that. I also used saison yeast instead of any kind of traditional porter yeast.
