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!

Ibrew2or3 (7107) - 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!

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.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2013
0.375 corked and wired champagne bottle. A shade away from entirely black. Firm, lightly tanned head. Strong barrel notes hit the nose first, then a whiff of fortified wine, and tones of coffee-scented dark malts. Big body, fairly soft in the mouth. Vinous, roasty and distinctly bitter. Coffe, licorice and some wooden tones. Warm, nicely bitter finish. Good stuff.

Opaque black beer, good tan head. Softish semi dry palate. Rich malt - silky and barleywine like. Small amounts of roast and licorice. Nicely joined up red berry fruits from the Port Barrel, integrated very well indeed. Trace of hops before the semi dry finish. Lovely!

Stew41 (1759) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JAN 12, 2013
Incredibly thick palate structure although surprisingly the flavours don’t really belt you in the face. Can almost be passed off as some sort of bitter PX! I wish I could read the commercial descriptor as I bet there’s some interesting beer making techniques going on. Heavy red wine-like aromas lead into some rich cooked fruits and some tangy minerals. Very good really and unique palate structure.

Garlic_of_Doom (488) - SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours dark brown with some red hues, no head to talk about. Wood, vanilla and vinous aroma in large amounts hits the nose, followed by some chocolate. roasted malt and liquorice. Taste is dry, has chocolate, red berries, roasted malt, wood, some warming alcohol at the end. After taste is long, dry, roasted and a bit bitter. Mouthfeel is quite thick and dry, the thick feel probably comes from the oats. Medium carbonation, the bubbles are tiny and really nice to look at. Very interesting porter, definitely one of the better ones I’ve had.

kjorup (24) - DENMARK - DEC 21, 2012
375ml bottle. Pours very dark brown with a reddish tint and a thin tan head. Aroma is faint but of vanilla, oak, roasted malts and port. Medium to full body, creamy, low carbonation. Flavor is smoke, roast, oatmeal, vanilla and oak with alcohol notes. Starts quite sweet before finishing bitter and dry. Overall nice but lacks a little complexity and roundness.

Pours black with a red hue. Aroma is port wine, raisins and plums. Flavour is a fuller version of the aroma with a light alcohol warmth and burn
