COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
bottled, special
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

Silvan7 (823) - Samarate, ITALY - MAY 19, 2015
Bottle @ home. Marrone scuro, velata, schiuma beige molto fine, abbastanza persistente. Aroma tostato, fondi di caffè, cacao amaro, salamoia delle olive, erbaceo da luppolo. Gusto abboccato, cioccolato, e cacao in polvere, poi amara, tostata ed acidula. Corposa, molto carbonata, astringente. Non rotonda senza eccedere nello spigolosa. Poco calda, abbastanza equilibrata. Armonica.

Zwart zwart. Ruimt sterk naar drop. Smaakt vol, en droppig zoet. Best lekker, misschien iets te droppig.

De couleur brune voir complètement noir on ne vois vraiment pas à travers; la mousse et de couleur beige et persiste peux. Au nez on va sentir des arômes de cacao en poudre, café doux, Ricoré, chocolat noir. L’odeur est assez puissante. En bouche on va bien sentir des saveurs de café; en fait on sent principalement que ça... L’amertume et moyenne voir faible. Elle manque peut-être d’un petit degré d’alcool en plus pour avoir une meilleure longueur et plus d’amertume après cela reste une porter ...

Bottle from Uba ja Humal in Tallinn (€ 3.50). Dark brown, head with great retention but not big, leaving some lacing. Nice roasty aroma, got some coffee and chocolate there. Tasty stuff - not too sweet, not too bitter, roasty, body and carbonation just right. Good one.

GSAP (558) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2015
Toegankelijke sterk donker bier, niet te zwaar, zelfs iets waterig in de smaak, subtiel kan je ook zeggen. Neus is licht kruidig, wat koffie tonen en wat verweven vanille. Smaak is ook wat zoetig in begin, maar wordt koffie bitter op het eind. Bruinzwart met weinig tot geen kraag. Niet mijn favoriete brewdog, maar kan ook aan de stijl liggen. Wordt wel beter naarmate alles vordert.
