2013 Prototype Challenge
A recipe we originally devised to celebrate opening BrewDog Brixton in the city that gave birth to the Porter style. Unfortunately the deal for the site fell through at the last minute, but we still wanted to make the beer. Brixton Porter is a delightfully decadent yet eminently drinkable dark beer.
Malts – Extra pale, Dark crystal, Roast barley, black
Hops – Victoria’s Secret, Bramling Cross, Challenger

Maris (1167) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2015
From a 330ml bottle on 28/8/2015. Pours a deep drown with a small tan head. Has a light aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and a touch of caramel. The flavour is quite robust, with lots of roasted malt, dark chocolate, nuts and the barest hint of dark fruit. It finishes with a quite sharp hoppy bitterness. Rich and full bodied with soft carbonation. A very good porter.

colui72 (324) - HONG KONG - AUG 21, 2015
Black with medium beige head. Aroma of cocoa, roasted malts and cherries. Taste gets more roasted, with some coffee, vanilla, before the black hops take over. Light bodied but very creamily smooth. A good porter.

Cantabrian (953) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 21, 2015
Black, tan head, lovely aroma of dark chocolate and cherries. Less berry character on the flavor, but still the cocoa, liquorice, and roasted malts. Softly salted, a roasted bitterness to nicely balance the sweetness, it has a medium body and a lovely silky feel. Pretty much what I expect from a porter.

nazbion (125) - Tübingen, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2015
Pours dark brown with thin beige head. Nice chocolatey aroma, coffee and herbs too. Taste of toasted malts, sweet and light bitter, without a long bitter finish. Balanced, light carbonation, easy drinking. Very enjoyable.

Davros (2408) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2015
Pours black with a tan head. Nose shows roasted malt, soft liquorice and a hint of cocoa. Flavours include a fair bit of dry roast with further hints of cocoa and liquorice. Understated and very well-made. Low carbonation, perfect.

hawthorne00 (2876) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle, 10C. Black with a light tan head that ends up a fat coat. Aroma of licorice, mocha, roasted barley, some floaty floral notes. Smells like a bigger beer than it is. Medium light body, lowish carbonation. A real breadth of flavours here - sweet dark sugars, mocha, roasted barley (but not too much), a little deeper charred flavour, touches of fruit. Fairly but discreetly bitter at the finish. Good stuff.
