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”.

PorterPounder (6892) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - Quick N Save - 500 ml bottle. Deep dark sable black pour, sticky, mocha colored head, nice film of lacing. Aroma has some molasses accents, a touch of chocolate. Full-bodied flavor, sweet molasses like notes, some canned baked brown bread, some cocoa notes. Mouthfeel has a pleasant oily essence to it. Nice find for a nice price.

Flaske. Farven er sort, kulsort og skumkronen er brunt og vedholdende. Aromaen er ristet malt, røg og tørret frugt. Smagen hensætter en til molen ved havnen, hvor der dufter af saltvand, tjære og tobak,. Ud over tjære og tobak smager den af lakrids og kaffe.

Bottle. Pours a deep brown to black color with a beige head. Roasted aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, ash and some smoke. The flavor follows up with more roastedness and pleasant smoke. Has a silky and slick mouth feel, medium body, and a medium bitterness. A well balanced and roasted ale with a nice touch of smoke.

ContemplateBeer (1916) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 26, 2015
0.5 L bottle from Louisville Beer Store; shared with my Boo. Paired with homemade bread pudding featuring a bourbon glaze. Aroma: Quite smokey with hints of dark chocolate underneath; really avoids any notable level of sweetness. Appearance: Garnet black body with streams of light carbonation holding up a sticky dark tan head. Flavor: Smokey and a little toasty up front; dark chocolate gives a bit of a semi-sweet respite towards the finish, which is woodsy-dry. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Thoroughly enjoyable and of a high quality. Definitely one to linger on.

Autarkian (4) - DENMARK - NOV 20, 2015 does not count
Sufficiently foamy that makes for a creamy, sort of ’pillowy’ feel. The taste of liquorice is just there, definitely not too much, rather too little. There’s only a faint bitterness after the real taste is gone (however well-balanced and quite savoury that is). Overall, I’m a bit disappointed because I wanted this beer to taste more for a longer time.

(6) Slightly above average. This is without a doubt a highly overrated beer. Yes the front runner of beers - in the micro genre - but we are long gone does times. A stable beer, and a must try beer for people coming to Denmark - a good place to start a story about brewing in Denmark -

bartlebier (3167) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2015
50cl bb04/2016, Føtex Ebeltoft 09/2015. - Glad to finally get hold of this classic in the slowly rejuvenated style category of Baltic Porter. Label: "Double Brown Stout, Ekstremt Luksusøl." - Alluringly secluded aroma of tar-covered cranberries, woodsmoke, char, bitter chocolate and cold espresso. Overwhelming amounts of dried smoked liquorice in several nuances in taste, both drop/lakrids candy and liquorice root cooked as Kaffee-Ersatz aka Muckefuck (caramelised chicory root), minimal sweetness and a savoury quality going on beef jerky. - Very smooth velvet mouthfeel, no abv burn whatsoever. Lots of character in this beer and a great accompaniment to chili con carne, a bit too metallic and far less accomodating as dessert.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2016 From bottle. Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of smoke, heavy roasted malts, coffee, liqourice. Taste is lots of smoke, coffee, roasted malts, heavy liqourice. Re-rate: from tap. Much better!!
