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”.

33 cL bottle. Pours utterly black with a chocolate creamy brown head. Thick roasted and smoked malty aroma, notes of chocolate and coffee. Medium bodied. Lovely thick chocolate, liqourice and coffee flavour. Thick smoke note into the bitter finish. A true classic and a masterpiece amongst Danish brews.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2002
A black beer with a nice brown head. The aroma nice and that of smoked malt. The flavor is soft and dominated by the smoked malt. A really nice beer for a late evening.

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

joergen (19644) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2005
Black colour with a huge creamy brown head. It has the typical stout aroma with notes of liquorice and smoke. The aroma is a bit like the smell of new-tarred fishing nets. Powerful flavour dominated by liquorice and smoke with notes of coffee. Nice bitter finish. This beer is nice on a cold winterday, but much too powerfull and heavy on a warm summerday. But be aware it can give you serious hangovers.

omhper (18949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2003 Dark black, maybe because off the artificial colouring stated on the label. Big, malty body. Smoke and coffee in the palate. Rather sweet. A good beer, interesting beer. (6/4/8/3/15)
However like most Baltic porters this is ment for keeping and will improve significantly with time. Thanks to the brewmaster who let me sample some of the 1988 version at the Danish beer festival I relaized how good this ber can become. The aroma was full of sweet licorice, chocoalte and coffee. It was sweet, complex, rounded and mature. perhaps the tobacco flavoured I sensed came from the brewmaster smoking pipe. The finish was mild and velvetty.

Black color, creamy head. The aroma doesn’t impress me too much, because it tends to show too much burnt paper and bad coffee, but somehow there is a familiar Danish touch too. The flavor is much better, mostly due to a very good body strength, with strong black malt first of all, then caramel and some dry liquorice too. The final gets slightly sweeter and the liquorice balances more the black malt. I’m not too excited by "coffee" beers, but indeed it’s a good one.

Black color, thick head. Good aroma of roasted malt, nutty, but also some cardboard. Good body strength, strong roasted malt flavor and chocolate, hidden but good malt. Somehow a very interesting mix. Strong ending bitterness, with burnt sugar too. Very good.

2003-06-22, draught at Charlie’s Pub, Copenhagen, 7-5-9-5-17=43
Dark color, creamy dark head. Nose of coffee, cardboard, roasted malt. Full body, strong mouthfeel without being alcoholic. Good malt and roasted malt, lightly smokey.
