I'm sitting down to a bottle of my first all-extract (non kit) brew at the moment. It tastes great, except for one thing, its got a smokey flavoured aftertaste thats overpowering the hop boquet :(

Any ideas what could have caused this? I suspect it may have been malt getting burnt in the boil? Hops getting burnt in the boil?

The smoke might have been from the twin towers falling.

This is taking 'digging up an old thread' to new levels...
