Default AG darker beer that is easy

On my fourth batch of AG, been just doing different variations of Edworts pale ale.

Looking for a darker beer or just a really good other AG beer that is preferably higher ABV. Preferably not too many ingredients, and fairly easy to make.

Thanks,
Daum

Try a porter. Single infusion, simple hop and grainbill, lots of flavour.

Orfy had a good looking and simple recipe:

Not sure how dark you are wanting to go but here is a thread with some good darker Red ale recipes in it: LINK

Cheers

Porters are great. I really like oatmeal stouts, too. I've got both in my recipe list. The vanilla porter is a big beer with a lot of ingredients. The oatmeal stout is straightforward. I've made both a few times with very good results.

Try a dry stout.

70% two row
20% flaked barley
10% roasted (unmalted) barley
OG about 1.040

bitter at 60 minutes boil to about 30 IBU's with your favorite bittering hop - I use my homegrown Nugget

US-05 or 1056 yeast

I'm making a porter this weekend, but it uses 5-6 specialty malts and 3 kinds of hops...easy, but not exactly at the 'low' end of required ingredients.

but it was the best porter I'd ever tasted, so what's a guy to do?
