COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Et hundrede år efter at Carlsberg´s grundlægger Carls Jacobsen donerede statuen af den Lille Havfrue til København, er der brygget en øl til at markere denne lejlighed. Mermaid Porter er tjæresort med god fylde og et skum så kraftigt, at man skulle tro selveste Vestenvinden havde blæst det op. Øllet dufter indbydende af friskbagte beskøjter, tovværk og skippers nystoppede snadde. Smagen er rig på varme, malt og lakridsagtig bitterhed. Mermaid Porter er brygget til ære for Den Lille Havfrue udført af billedhuggeren Edvard Eriksen. Det var bryggeren Carl Jacobsen som fik ideen til statuen og det var takket være hans gavmilde donation, at Den Lille Havfrue kunne præsenteres for offentligheden d. 23. august 1913. Ingredienser: brygget af bygmalt, rugmalt, havregryn, hvedemalt, rørsukker, salturt, østers, humle og gær. Flaskens indhold svarer til 5 genstande. Alkohol styrke 10%. Mermaid Porter sælges i en gaveæske med 2 x 0,75 l. øl.

I am delighted to have sampled this beer thanks to the generosity of Cantabrian. Bless him. This appears as black as sin with a mocha head. The aroma is faintly salty but mostly of molasses and of darker chocolates, licorice and powdered cocoa. A taste reveals brine and thick oiliness. Have you ever tried Zouta drops - that kooky Dutch licorce that is salty and intensely salty? Yeah it’s a bit like that only not completely unpleasant like Zouta drops. There are flavours of molasses and oysters and just wow... sweet salty goodness. What a treat. Just glorious.

Bottle 75 cl. Pours an opaque black with a beige head. Distinct smoke aroma, tar ad iodine. Solid body with a sweet and rich maltiness, again lots of smoke but the iodine is a bit of a letdown. Rather ashy. 280913
