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!

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2012
Bottle 37 cl. Large bubbly light chocolate brown color head that really lasted. Good display of lacework. Pitch black color. Aroma of roasted malt, English liquorish, coffee, dark chocolate, dried fruit and hint of vanilla and wood. Over the palate came strong notes of burned malt, hard roasted coffee, dark chocolate and liquorish. It really has this oatmeal feel to in. Very full bodied with a soft carbonation and very thick texture. Heavy sweet flavor with good counter bitterness. Lingering roasted malty and coffee finish. Excellent.
