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”.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2005
33 cl bottle. No yeast in bottom. Very black colour with a nearly creamy head. A really pleasant smoke aroma. I love this flavour of roasted malt, smoke and hints of coffee it ends very smooth and tasteful.

Soapy cocoa-colored head. Very hoppy aroma. Tobacco taste at the end. Slight burnt taste that lingers on the palate. Nothing spectacular.

Firemoose15 (567) - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Out of bottle,thanks rich. Aroma of strong hops and mud. Pour was a dark brown. Flavor was dark roast almost burnt, peppery and tobaccoish. Palate was okay but I just couldn’t get past the earthen dirtlike taste. Overall it was okay just not for me.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2005
dark brown with a fizzy ring around the edge of the glass. nose has burnt malts and licorice. flavor is very burnt, with a peaty tobacco finish. the burnt flavor is a little bit too heavy for my liking. there is a distinct hoppy vein running through the background on this as well.

This is the best porter ever made. Black colour with aroma of licorice and malt. huge brown mostly lasting head. Smooth taste of chocolate and a full body.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2005
Quite creamy and roasty with a burnt mouthfeel - like a charred tree. Vinous and thick with plenty of flavor. Tar-like in some ways. A serious stout-ish porter for purists. Not to be trifled with. Perhaps the slightest hint of alcohol, which is remarkably subtle given its ABV. Well done!!!! A superlative example of the best Denmark has to offer.

On tap at Christian Firtal, Odense. Very dark, very smoky. Loads of coffee and dark chocolate. Licorice too. Quite a lot of sharp bitterness and some woody notes on the finish. Full mouthfeel. There’s a lot going on, but the abiding memory is of the smokinesst. Top notch.
