COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Egentlig skulle denne øl have heddet ”Portvinslagret Oatmeal Porter”, og selv om vi her på bryghuset ynder lange og komplicerede ølnavne, så er vi også bevidste om, hvor vi kommer fra. Så på ægtede populistisk maner forkortede vi simpelthen navnet til ”POP!” – så håber vi lissom at have alle med, fra Windsorvej til Holmbladsgade.
Men jo, dette er en Porter så solid, som du næppe nogensinde har fået den før. Brygget på de sorteste malte, vi overhovedet kunne finde på lageret, de bedste havregryn fra Netto – og så tilsat et et ægte portvinsfad fra...øh, Portugal....fordi vi synes, at det hele godt må være lidt fisefornemt. Forestil dig Bayeux-tapetet udformet som en Amar-nummerplade, på lænden af en af vor lille ø’s smukkeste bimb....øh...babes. Sådan er vi: fulde af modsætninger, og platte på den subtile måde.
Nyd synet af POP! når du hælder den op: sort som en vinternat i Kongelunden med et tommetykt og sejlivet lysebrunt skum som varer næsten forevigt. Duften er blød og rig på vanille, mens portvinsfadet ikke just dominerer, men derimod udbløder og afrunder de sorte malte og fremhæver den udprægede chokoladekarakter.
POP! er fuld af vitaminer og sunde mineralsalte, og den gør sig fortrinligt sammen med havregrød eller som erstatning for mælken på havregrynene. Åh jo, det er ganske vist....prøv det!

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2013
(Bottle) Black colour with creamy, beige head. Roasted, malty nose with black coffee, liquorice, chocolate, cacao and a touch of port wine. Malty, roasted taste with notes of liquorice, strong black coffee, cacao, oak wood, ashes and a fairly dry finish with a touch of port wine. Slightly sharp wood character. Almost full body, with a certain roasty bitterness. A bit different, but very nice.

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle share courtesy of sebletitje. The bottle pours with a very dark body that supports a nice looking mocha head of foam. The aroma has rye bread to almost mild spicy oak, brown sugar sweetened oatmeal cereal and a modest degree of boozy spirits with kind of a red wine twang going on. The taste is rich and deep with dark roasted malts, malty body thickness, creaminess and then running into boozy barrel and almost a red wine like booze note. The red wine taste sometimes, oddly enough, comes across as a mix of spicy wood and baker’s chocolate nuanced by a faint grape flavor. On the palate this comes across as a big beer. This rates a "yum" from me!

sebletitje (6761) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2013
37.5cl bottle from Systembolaget, Göteborg. Batch 245, BB 2022. Brune, belle mousse crémeuse beige, le tout sur un doré au verre. Arôme restitue le Porto avec un bouquet grains avoine laissant augurer une bière complexe et épaisse. Pointe de barrique restant en retrait par rapport au Porto, note de fruits rouges, céréales, pointe d’épices caractérisant l’usage d’avoine. Palais est hautement épais venant de cet usage d’avoine. Le tout garde une belle note de Porto léger, touche de boisé avec un palais réchauffant ainsi que d’une fine aigreur boisée. Note de sucre candi complémenté par un palais et une fin de bouche très épaisse. Laisse un fini collant aux lèvres avec un résiduel levure couplé à la présence de porto qui ajoute ce côte vin rouge-sucré.
