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!

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!

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 (448) - 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.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours almost black with a thin tanned head. Smells of roasted malts, coffee, port and oak; alot of dark sins in here. Taste is medium sweet, quite roasty, lots of coffee, some chocolate and port, some booze. Moderate bitter, coffee and earthy hops. A fantastic brew. The port is very well integrated, very nice complex aromas and flavors

Miksu (4948) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2012
0.375 l bottle from Copenhagen. Black color. Roasty and vinous aroma with raisins, tobacco, cocoa and red wine. Sweet roasty salty licorice flavor with charcoal, oak, red wine and raisins. Full body, some woodiness in palate but not too oaky. Quite unique taste, plenty of salty licorice like in some couch medicines I had as a kid.
