In this episode of Brewnology, Dean and Jason look at what it takes to judge beers in the specialty categories. They also take a look at 2015 style category 16B, Oatmeal Stout. The sample tasted today is New Hollands The Poet. After that we talk a little bit about astringency. We would also like to take this time to mention our newest sponsor supporting Brewnology, Grape Grain and Bean Home Brewing Supply!
