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”.

Bottle. Smokey, nutty, hints of flat cola. Lots of smoke and ash, but in a very good way. Quite enjoyable.

After a run of average porters, this took me in a new direction, and it is easily the most sympathetic of the beers I had. big coffee, roasted, with big-time smoke notes. Not a lot of carbonation and not too much going on in the finish, just a mild bitterness and an array of wholesome roasted malt flavors. Good stuff.

black with a reddish tint and a grey head. sweet roasty aroma with a vanilla note. taste is strong roast wood flavor with a nut flavor of pecan and almond. smokey sweetness really comes out later in this. clean finish of bitter coffee and chocolate with the bitter fading to a rich nuttiness. a good one. thanks to Bierkonig for sending this gem.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2005
Appearance is perfect! -Although it’s what’s the inside that counts. (A little not too clever allegory.. sorry). Pitchblack and with a creamy head which color resembles roasted marshmallows. Flavor is delicious. Liquorice and roasted malts and a slightly bitter finish. But this is heavy stuff. I might consider mixing some of it up next time..

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Pitch black with a thick, creamy, sticky and retentive head - but a lovely appearance. Smoked and burned nose. Medium-bodied with very burned - almost tar-like - malts and a smoked touch. Rather discreet bitterness. A beer with a great personality. 020606

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2005
Bottle: Black, dark brown edges, large light brown head, rocky, wonderful lacing.   Roasted malt, slight smoke, subtle wet sock aroma.   Malty, charred wood, light but smooth on the tongue.   Fairly sweet, slight lactose as well.   Not big, but nice body and smooth.   Milk sugar finish, on a bed of roasted malts steeped in coffee.   Soft hop appearance too.   Tasty!   Thanks Lars!

Dense creamy head. Opague. Aroma has malt, caramel, coffe and chocolate. The flavor is even more intense: roasted malt and coffee hide the malty sweetness. Cacao. Thick mouthfeel. Very bitter. very complex and very powerful. A world class beer, without any doubt. Thanks Ivo K., for bringing me this one!
