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”.

nearbeer (4879) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 16, 2016
500 ml. lot no. 23022015. Assuming this has aged for over a year from that info. Nose is cured tobacco, bacon, raisin, toffee, chocolate malt and a hint of oats. Look is opaque jet with a creamy disc of lasting foam. Flavors of dark toffee, citrus zest, char, prune and smoky bandage. Medium-plus body has a smooth, low-medium carbonation and a drying finish that brings a drinkable balance to the big malty brew.

flying_pig (1424) - SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2016
500ml Bottle from Netto Supermarket, Copenhagen (18 Danish Krone):
Strong, slightly boozy with some alcohol showing but far from a bad beer. Good roasted flavours & a malty taste complimented the chocolate sweetness & liquorice. Full-bodied & smooth, the beer seemed warming & was very enjoyable; good stuff all round.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2016
500ml bottle. Unfiltered looking brown-black body. Steady beige head rims the glass. I was a little hesitant with the licorice, but this is a fantastic Baltic Porter, has a lot of English sensibility while still amping it up a notch. The smoke is more prevalent than the licorice to me, I’d be comfortable calling this a Smoked Porter. Quite excellent, I will definitely revisit this.
