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.

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

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2016 (Re-rated on tap @ Taphouse on May 4th 2016) Poured at fridge temperature into a Taphouse snifter glass and allowed to sit for twenty minutes reveals a pitch black body with one finger of tan head that fades but leaves lace and a nice ring of foam around the sides of the glass. Aroma is very pleasant with well-rounded notes of roasted malt that carry an almost smoky quality. On the palate it’s obvious that the carbonation is quite soft and the body is surprisingly light for the ABV. It’s all very harmonic though. The texture is oily and the finish lingers with a slightly dry and lightly roasted quality. There is a complete absence of ascerbicity and toffee oxydation from the brew and this makes it very, very pleasant to drink. Flavour follows the nose. Compared to when it was fresh this one is better in appearance yet a bit worse off in palate. Aroma and flavour remains unchanged. Original rating from October 26th 2013 - A: 7; Ap: 3; Fl: 8; Pa: 4; O: 15 (75 cl bottle #4192 from the Jacobsen shop; BBD: August 23rd 2113) Pours black with big tan head that recedes quickly leaving surface film and some lace. Aroma is roasted malt with notes of tar and licorice. Creamy texture, soft carbonation, medium to full body with a long, roasted bitter finish. Flavour is somewhat remniscient of salt licorice. The alcohol is very well integrated.
