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!

gyllenbock (4460) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget, bought in May 2012. Black with a medium brownish head. Aroma of roasted malt, licorice, oak and some salt. The taste was heavy and not elegant. Vinous with licorice, ash, roasted malt and salt. Drinkable but a bit tough in the long run.

abemorsten (2622) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2012
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Pours a black body with a small light brown head leaving fair lacing. Port, roasted notes, liquorice and tobacco on the nose and faint barrel notes. Salty liquorice that lasts throughout the mouth. port notes, roasted, fruity flavors with a subdued sweetness. The beer is full bodied and smooth; it grows and fills the mouth in a most pleasant way.

SirLimpsalot (2084) - SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2012
@ Silenzi: doften består av fat eller treflis. Smaken är udda och för mig inte särskilt god. Mycket vinös med en mycket torr eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

laiti (5574) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2012
37,5 cl bottle @ home. Batch #245: BBE 2022
Aroma is slightly sour with oaky notes, some rubber and hints of lactic acid. Flavour is sweetish and salty with oaky notes, rubber, salt and licorice. Too salty and rather weird too.

olio (5978) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2012
375 ml bottle. Batch #245. BBE 2022.
Pours deep dark brown color with minimal head. Aroma of bourbon, ash, leather, salt and liquorice. Flavor of salt and lots of salt, cocoa, vanilla, burnt malts, chocolate and creamy salmiac. Smooth creamy and salty palate with dryish finish. Not bad but obviously the strong salt flavour was not intentional.

tiong (3684) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2012
375ml bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen

Pours pitch black with virtually no head at all. Aroma of spices, sweet roasty malts, syrup, sugary notes. Taste is sweet and salty with some licorice, oak, hints of roasty and syrupy notes. Finish is salty and sweetish, hints of roastiness. Unbalanced, too salty and sweet for my taste.

lusikka (6075) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2012
375 ml bottle. Batch #245.
Pours a dark brown colour with a small head. Aroma of roasted malts, coconut and honey. Flavour of roasted malts, strong salty licorice, burnt rubber, wood, coconut, syrup and really, really strong salt. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and silky smooth mouthfeel. Really disturbing salty, coconut and leather-like finish. Weird, weird and weird. Saltiness does not fit in at all, even though I usually like it.
