BrewDog VS Fierce - Neighbourhood
RASPBERRY AND BLACKCURRANT PORTER
The silver city unites and two become one in this dark brown Porter. Aromas of chocolate, berry fruit and roastiness rise.
Scottish raspberries and blackcurrants interplay with roasty, nutty and dark chocolate notes. A complex, layered Porter with a juicy sweet delivery, complemented by an underlying gentle bitterness and subtle spice from the hops. Good neighbours making good beer for our global neighbourhood.

The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
Original Gravity (abbreviated OG) is a measure of the fermentable and unfermentable substances in a beer wort before fermentation. Those substances are often the sugars that will be converted to alcohol during the fermentation process.
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
Amber, Carafa, Crystal, Flaked Oats, Pale
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
