David Bowie Porter

I wish my camera worked so I could take a picture of my computer desk. It's littered with tons of 3 dolla-a-can Fuller's London Porters. I just tried this stuff recently for the first time and I'm absolutely hooked. Cocoa nose,deep toffee flavors and a slight creamy sweetness that is somewhat similar to coffee. So I had to brew some, off to check out brown porter recipes, I ended up brewing this.
Oh and I decided this beer will be named after David Bowie, Ziggy Stardust era in particular, It's made more than a few brewdays go quickly.
