Danish: Fur Porter er en overgæret øl af typen Imperial Stout. Mørk, mahognifarvet med tæt nøddebrunt skum, der har en lang holdbarhed og giver fine blonder på glasset. Dejlig duft af røgmalt og engelsk lakrids. Fyldig maltet smag med en ekstra tone af røgmalt og engelsk lakrids, der afrundes i en for øltypen frisk afslutning. Engelsk inpireret porter brygget på fem forskellige malttyper - bl.a. røgmalt, karamelmalt og chokolademalt - samt to humletyper, hvoraf den ene er med til at give øllen et friskt pift. Humlen tilsættes af to omgange.

English: Fur Porter is a top fermented beer of the Imperial Stout style. Dark mahogany color with a nut brown head which has a long durability and leaves nice lacings on the glass. Nice aroma of smoked malt and English licorice. Full malty flavor with an extra note of smoked malt and English licorice which ends in a fresh finish, even for this style. English inspired porter brewed with five different types of malt - smoked, caramel and chocolate malts amongst others - and two types of hops where one of them gives the beer its fresh note. The hops are added in two stages.

Near black colored, slight red tones there. Little light brown head. Fine smoke, chocolate and roastiness in aroma, good aroma with mild alcohol and licorice. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is also rich with roastiness, coffee, smoke, licorice, fine hops and some sweetness. Aftertaste has hoppy bitterness with slight licorice. Again good danish brew.

flemmingwillum (1185) - Nysted, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2006
Fur Porter has a nice malty and full body with hints of minerals from the unfiltrered water of the island of Fur in Denmark. Is also has, except from the taste of chocolate, a taste like tobacco, but in a good way like old pipe tobacco. This is maybe because that the water used to brewing the beer has been naturally filtered through volcano layers on fur in milleniums? The Beer is quite dry which is great, but it could use a little more roastyness. It still really makes you want one more sip, though.

pilsnerrogge (2829) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2006
[Bottle] Black with a large head. Aroma is liquorice and smoke. Schlenkerla Rauchbier springs to mind when you taste this dry, smoked, wet wood, ashy brew. Quite tasty.
