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”.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2007
Thanks to thewolf for this beer. Thick black poor with a sticky foamy brown head. Aromas of hickory, moca coffee, hint of vanilla, bananas and makes me think of a nice night around a camp fire... You cannot feel or taste the alcohol. Good bitterness, dark bitter chocolate... Very evolutive palate... Creamy mouthfeel. Long lasting Smokey bitter taste that turns slightly sweet towards the aftertaste. Very good beer, this beer is an obvious stout...

jspruit (122) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 14, 2007
Pours dark with a copper head from the bottle-even though I brought it back from DK a couple of months ago. Smells great and looks great too. There are some hints of coffee, licorice, and smokiness in the smell-but it isnt overpowering at all. I think that it drinks relatively smooth for a beer with an ABV this high, but it isnt for the faint of heart as it is a porter (or ’Double Brown Stout’ according to the label.) I could drink these all night as they aren’t too filling initially, but you do feel the ABV a bit after drinking it so watch out! This is becoming one of my favorite beers from Denmark and I will continue to bring at least a bottle or two home from each visit if I can.
