COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kom fra Thisted Bryghus i 1989 efter syv års eksperimenter. Navnet stammer fra Urban-bryggeriet i Aalborg, hvor brygmesteren fra Thisted Bryghus i slutningen af 70érne ”slog sine folder”. Her fik han første gang ”smag” for provinslivet og denne særlige øltype, som ofte i Thisted-regi betegnes som øllets gentleman. Navnet købtes efter Urban-bryggeriets lukning i 1986. Limfjords-Porteren ”kredsede” brygmesteren om frem til 1997, hvorefter han ikke mente længere at kunne forbedre produktet. Den rette blanding af maltene var opnået. Af usædvanlige ingredienser skal nævnes røgmalt og engelsk lakrids, der tilsammen giver en smagsmæssig balance på et lidt højere niveau end det sædvanligvis ses. Brygmesterens personlige favorit og ”hjertebarn”.

Very dark black colour, pours quite thick. Strong malt presence on the nose, with dark chocolate and nuts. Lovely and toasty on the palate, quite dry.

Pours a surprisingly thick, night black color, with a huge, spongy beige head. Smells of smoky, roasted malts, coated up by toffee, fudge and bakers chocolate. Creates an intriguing interplay between sweet and salty, while featuring a mellowing earthiness. Has a pleasantly low carbonation, with a soft mouthfeel, full of whipped cream. Tastes of toffee, smoked, salty malts, old coffee and roasted bread. Has a lot of whipped atop of this foundation, soothing the flavors, with ham and molasses cutting through, also providing a lactic sourness. Finishes with sweet toffee, while smoke prevails, balanced by almost scorched malts. Features a unique flavor mix, while its sweetness misses some balance. The mouthfeel is really creamy, finding its antagonist in bitter espresso coffee, remaining a bit thin on the tongue.
