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

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.

330 ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.

Looks: Clear deep pitch black colour; Less than one-quarter finger head and residual soapy beige foam which fades in 20 seconds; Good sticky lacing with near zero carbonation.

Aroma: Very low-fi and unimpressive dark malt, with fair roastyness, toffee, coffee, cream, sugar and yeast.

Taste: Close to light sweet dark malt, with very strong roastyness, nuts, strong burnt toast, strong black coffee, thin molasses notes, earth, yeast, strong lemon, very strong bitter hops and very sharp grass.

Body: Light body. Thin and watery palate.

Mouth Feel: Fair dark maltyness in a very thin body. Very strongly roasted with subdued nuts but lots of burnt toast and sour black coffee. No chocolate nor cream low cream, light earth and sweet notes only. Strong lemon bitter hops to round. One dimensional!

Hoppiness: Almost no hop aroma. Lots of strong lemon and sharp grass in taste. Bitterness is strong for a lasting, quite high astringent roasty finish.

After Taste: Quite dry; Sour coffee and bitter to mouth.

Comments: Thought this one would be better than the Alice Porter I had yesterday but no - aroma went AWOL, taste is one-way coffee ground sourness and bitterness. The worst of all being its very thin and watery body, even an average Schwarzbier is better than this. No thanks!

Pours dark brown haze colour with light brown head. Aroma without notice of an alcohol, prevailing notes of roasted barley, coffee and dark chocolate. Similar is flavor: without notice of an alcohol, prevails notes of coffee, dark chocolate. Malt sweetness is medium, hop bitterness also. finish is somehow watery.

Bottle. Black body with a beige head. Licorice aroma with earthy hops and roast. Taste of coffee with chocolate, robust fruity bitterness at the end. A solid porter.

PawelD (312) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 17, 2015
Bottle. Coffee and dark chocolate aroma, not very strong. Pitch black with amber reflexes in colour. Very coffee-acidic in taste and only that. A good porter whatsoever but nothing special.

Tognetta (335) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JUL 2, 2015
Negra opaca, espuma bege de fácil formação, consistente. Aroma mais de chocolate que café, média intensidade, dulçor médio, toffe, bastante atraente. Amargor de torrefação, corpo médio certo para o estilo, carbonatação leve, leve toque defumado. Aftertaste lembra mais a café, cacau, persistente e bem equilibrado.

Le nez est surprenant : derrière le côté caramelisé/pruneaux typique des porters, on sent un côté fumé qu’on attribuerait presque à une scotch ale. La bouche est très similaire à la guinness export en moins écoeurante (car moins sucrée) et plus sèche. La note fumée se retrouve légèrement en bouche et finit perceptiblement sur un café assez rond qui coupe l’amertume. Le produit se révèle complexe et équilibré et à beaucoup de choses à offrir.
