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!

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2014
Flaske, 375 ml, batch 242, med champagneprop. Mørk og rødbrun med et beige skum, der langsomt vokser til og så dør ud. Desværre er aromaen præget af prop. Øv. Efter et par minutter dukker nogle kraftigt brændte maltnoter op - med mindelser om saltlakrids og mørke bær. Den mugne smag af prop er lidt mindre tydelig i smagen, der er intens, lettere sprittet, mørk, ristet, maltet, sød og brændt bitter. Slutter muggent, desværre. Ikke så meget Pop! som Prop!

jackl (4797) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Sample @ RBWG Grand Tasting. Brown pour with a small head. Fire pit ash, robust licorice and anise character. The taste isn’t really my thing. More anise. Some chocolate. Hints of something like ginger. Full body, soft carbonation.

SlackerMads (1681) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown close to black with a medium sized light brown head, good retention and lace. Has noticeable port in the nose, but the flavour is a different story. Lots of salty liquorice, tarmac, light burnt malt, warming alcohol, wood, dry port wine, light ash. Full body, oily/light sticky texture, soft carbonation, medium/heavy sweet and bitter and quite salty. Very flavourful and demanding, but has a nice texture and just when it’s about to get too rough it mellows out a bit. One of a kind.
