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”.

Thin creamy medium tan head, blackish-chestnut opaque body. Aroma is smoky dark roasted malts, a little salty, belgian dark chocolate sauce, and beef jerky. Flavor is a bit of anise, then roasted/burnt caramel malt, salty smokyness, and a dry/salty finish. Bitter dark chocolate aftertaste and faint boozyness.

Pours pitch black with nice creamy tan head. Aroma has smoky malts, caramel, toffee, bready malts, liquorice. Taste is sweet at first, english caramel malts, toffee, then hits you with dry smoky finish. Dark malts and roasty finish. Yet smooth medium to full body. Awesome for the price!

Svart med lite skum på toppen. Kallt kaffe i doft och smak. Fyllig och fin porter, sticker inte ut men är god och balanserad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen. Pours black with beige head. Nice lacing. Roasted malts, chocolate, bitter finish. Bit too sweet for my taste.

Smoked and very creamy with notes of liquerice. Simply put the best Baltic porter around. Perfect blend!

Den perfekte stout! Tyk, smager af alt godt der hører til en porter/stout. Billig øl, dansk øl. Man skal kun have en aller højest to!

czlowiekwiadro (384) - POLAND - JUN 25, 2015
zapach przyjemny choć mocno alkoholowy. kawa, kakao, gorzka czekolada, jogurt, praliny, trufle, drobna nuta suchej karmy dla psa. kolor czarny, nieprzejrzysty, ale klarowny. piana beżowa/bura, średnio obfita, dość szybko znika, ale potem trzyma się dzielnie cienką warstwą. w smaku pełne, słodkie, mocno słodowe, zdecydowanie za kwaśne, palone, lekko alkoholowe, pralinkowe, kawowe. lekko ostre. goryczka średnia, ziołowo alkoholowo kawowa, długa i osadzająca się, niestety średnio przyjemna. piwo zdecydowanie niezbalansowane, przywodzi na myśl zdecydowanie za mocną kawę rozpuszczalną.

Bottle. Best by date 28/4-12 (4 years old?). Dark brown/black, no sludge/yeast at the bottom, nice thick pale brown head, nice speckled lacings. Very nice and smooth mix of roasted malts, chocolate, smoke and sweet licorice. Maybe just a hint of dark fruits. Flavour is smooth and rich with velvety chocolate and english licorice, dark bread, toffee and also here hints of dark fruits. Really nice. There’s just a slight metallic/ashy acidic note that disturbs the smooth picture, but it’s fairly weak and totally acceptable. Could it have done with another year in the cellar perhaps? Body is still nice and sturdy with soft carbonation and an oily thick texture. Very nice beer for a very nice price if I remember correctly. I should have bought more bottles.
