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”.

Aroma: smoky, fresh fruit, wax, dark syrup, toffee/caramel, flowery hops, roasted almonds, licorice...
Flavour: weird, slightly of cardboard. Bitter, orasted malt. Slightly of pinesmoke & rubber. Bitter cocoa aftertaste. Roasted nuts, liqueurish but subtle sweetness of malt, figs & licorice.
Palate: fluffy but rather thin. Low to moderate carbonation. Lathery. Pretty good.
Appearance: very dark reddish brown with brown-tinted head /thick, lacy, lathery foam).

ContemplateBeer (1823) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 26, 2015
0.5 L bottle from Louisville Beer Store; shared with my Boo. Paired with homemade bread pudding featuring a bourbon glaze. Aroma: Quite smokey with hints of dark chocolate underneath; really avoids any notable level of sweetness. Appearance: Garnet black body with streams of light carbonation holding up a sticky dark tan head. Flavor: Smokey and a little toasty up front; dark chocolate gives a bit of a semi-sweet respite towards the finish, which is woodsy-dry. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Thoroughly enjoyable and of a high quality. Definitely one to linger on.

Autarkian (3) - DENMARK - NOV 20, 2015 does not count
Sufficiently foamy that makes for a creamy, sort of ’pillowy’ feel. The taste of liquorice is just there, definitely not too much, rather too little. There’s only a faint bitterness after the real taste is gone (however well-balanced and quite savoury that is). Overall, I’m a bit disappointed because I wanted this beer to taste more for a longer time.

33 cl Tyskland. Köpte ett 12 pack med blandad öl och denna var en av få som gick ut att dricka!

(6) Slightly above average. This is without a doubt a highly overrated beer. Yes the front runner of beers - in the micro genre - but we are long gone does times. A stable beer, and a must try beer for people coming to Denmark - a good place to start a story about brewing in Denmark -

bartlebier (2820) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2015
50cl bb04/2016, Føtex Ebeltoft 09/2015. - Glad to finally get hold of this classic in the slowly rejuvenated style category of Baltic Porter. Label: "Double Brown Stout, Ekstremt Luksusøl." - Alluringly secluded aroma of tar-covered cranberries, woodsmoke, char, bitter chocolate and cold espresso. Overwhelming amounts of dried smoked liquorice in several nuances in taste, both drop/lakrids candy and liquorice root cooked as Kaffee-Ersatz aka Muckefuck (caramelised chicory root), minimal sweetness and a savoury quality going on beef jerky. - Very smooth velvet mouthfeel, no abv burn whatsoever. Lots of character in this beer and a great accompaniment to chili con carne, a bit too metallic and far less accomodating as dessert.

rekvium (140) - Odense C, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2015
From bottle. Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of smoke, heavy roasted malts, coffee, liqourice. Taste is lots of smoke, coffee, roasted malts, heavy liqourice. Iconic Danish beer, but not my favorite style, to say the least.

bytemesis (5183) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 8, 2015
Bottle, gift from my secret santa. Thanks! pours deep rich black, medium creamy tan head, slow to dissipate and leaves nice lacing behind. Aroma is roasty, smokey, molasses, anise and cocoa. Flavor is light sweet and medium bitter, rich and roasty, hints of hardwood smoke along with molasses and a hint of anise root. Full body, rich creamy mouthfeel. This is a very nice beer.

Smoke, coffee, licorice and dark bitter chocolate. This stout has it all in a wonderful mix. I’m simply never tired of enjoying the new flavors are constantly appearing. Enjoy it from the refrigerator or from the box, the experience is new every time.

Such a classic in Danish brewing and still holds up to many newer beers. Smokey, great body, some hoppiness, plenty of burnt malts..
