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

HammerTroll (480) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 15, 2014
Pitch black, medium sized tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, smoked and coffee, some dark fruits and vanilla. Very nice. Strong coffee and roasty chocolate kick. Medium body, soft carbonation, creamy. Long coffee finish. Definitely underrated.
(Pivoljub 0,33l bottle)

GBZ59 (1129) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - SEP 13, 2014
Botella de 330ml, saboreada en Vaso de ˝ pt en L´Espumossa. Aromas torrefactos, de café e intenso regaliz, redondeados por leves notas de carbonilla, al destapar. Brota con color negro intenso con espuma bronceada que mantiene una cremosa y pertinente corona y deja copos en las paredes. Tal como anuncian los aromas, el regaliz aflora de entrada y fluye por doquier. Cuerpo pleno y carbonatación moderada. Paladar oleoso y aterciopelado. Notas de frutos secos, leve madera, cacao negro y sutiles resinas que permanecen en el prolongado y amargo final. Una buena y refrescante cerveza !! 330ml bottle @ L’ Espumossa (Barcelona). ˝ pt glass. Roasted, coffee, caramel malt & intense licorice aromas rounded by slight charcoal notes, as cap is removed. Pours pure black with a tan head forming a creamy & lasting crown & leaving spots on sides. As aromas announced, licorice arises on the upfront & flows all over. Full body. Moderate carbonation. Oily & velvety palate. Nutty notes, slight wood, dark cocoa & subtle resinous linger into a bitter & extended finish. A big & refreshing one !!

Bottle at home. This porter punk rocks. Smoky. Roasty. Toasty. Brixton calling.

radzik5555 (281) - Gdynia, POLAND - SEP 10, 2014
Butelka 0.33L.
Wygląd: Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana ciemnobeżowa, wysoka, zwłaszcza drobnopęcherzykowa, trwała.
Aromat: Kakao, praliny czekoladowe, skórka razowego chleba, pumpernikiel, kawa rozpuszczalna, herbatniki, kawa zbożowa i słodkie nuty słodowe, może daktyle, figi i rodzynki.
Smak: Lekko kwaskowe od palonych słodów, mocno palone, kawa gorzka, bardzo gorzka czekolada - 90% też ma takie kwaśne nuty. Goryczka niska do średniej, palona i lekko ziołowa. minimalnie wyczuwalny alkohol.
Odczucie: Faktura gładka, oleista. Ciało średnie-. Nasycenie CO2 odpowiednie, niewysokie.
Całość: Lekki, mocno palony porter, bez wad, nieźle pijalny. Może nie wybitne ale na pewno porządne piwko.

pivnizub (8853) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2014
Bouteille: Really black, smaller and slowly collapsing tanned head; dryish ashy-roasty nose, accompanied by a tinge of molasses, balanced by a certain amout of dried fruits; quite solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied, soft MF; lingering roasty and fruity finish, mainly dry and slightly sour.Well crafted, well balanced…

Bozo_skeleton (500) - Grenoble, FRANCE - SEP 6, 2014
Noir aux reflets rubis, miuscule collet de tres fines bulles mais persistant. Arome bien marques café, moka, chocolat. Au palais c’est une merveille, onctueuse des l’attaque, ronde et enveloppante, final sur le café (et une pointe d’agrumes) avec une longueur agréable. J’aime !
