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”.

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.

Black with a large off white head. Nice chocolate and liquorice aroma. Flavour is similar, with some nutty notes. Full oily feel. Nice stuff.

DanielBrown (3717) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2005
Bottle at Olbaren during RBESG 05 pub crawl. Served to me by Jacob Lovenlund, who also produced his own version of this beer for RBESG, but with a bottle of whiskey added! Deep black, with a big brown head. Aroma - oily and understated. Oily mouthfeel. Smooth hazelnut flavour - no the strength I was expecting, but balanced and tasty. Good Porter, but not as different as I was expecting.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2005
Deep, impenetrable black. Complex aroma features dark chocolate, coffee, black licorice, malt, steel and smoke. A good, rich mouthfeel. Generous dark chocolate flavour is extremely rewarding, and is complemented by layers of coffee and licorice on the finish. Very, very nice!

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2005
Black colour, with a thick beige head. Salty nose with hints of tar. Flavour from liquorice, tobacco and coffee. Both aroma and flavour reminds me of the sea. Quite thick mouthfeel. Long roasty/burnt finish.

weepingsuds (222) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Bottle. Very impressed. Smokey and deep in character. BLack as night and filled with a full body carrying notes of coffee and heavy spice. Like a cross between a rauchbier and a porter.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Bottle. Smokey, nutty, hints of flat cola. Lots of smoke and ash, but in a very good way. Quite enjoyable.
