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”.

i like stouts and porter - this is my favorite one. Very strong taste and thick body: roasty, chocolate, coffee, very black. Good beer to mix with other liquid, for an example "snaps", pilsner, citrus etc. U gotta try Limfjords Porter!!! ;-)

Den bedste stout man kan komme i nærheden af. For mig er den referencepunkt for alle andre øl. Det er toppen af ølbrygning.

It just don’t get any better. Only competition I can think of, is Ølfabrikkens Porter.

What can I say, it’s distinctive and delicious. There is a strong smoked-meat character here, I won’t say bacon, that’s just too easy. More like smoked salmon. Smoked salmon in a bottle. Yum. Now that’s good beer.

Whoa, character up the wazoo! I let the bottle warm up out of the fridge. Poured with a magnum sized foamy, frothy, fluffy, billowy, sudsy, tan head and lots of clingy lace. Color is an absolutely opaque black brown. Aroma is complex with licorice, dark ripe fruit, roast malt, earth, musty, old leather, gin, cocoa. Flavor is similar but also is quite dry with only a suggestion of possible sweetness if you’re being good; plus a little salty tang, leftover coffee, unsweetened cocoa. Body is full, carbonation is spot on and the overall effect is just perfect for this beer. Finish is like flavor with the extremes diminishing first and softer components tapering later in a fairly lengthy process. Too big for a session, but what a work of art!

Bottle (also had it on tap a few times). Pours blacker than black and has a beautiful brown head. Aroma is smoke and coffee. Taste is of roasted malt, coffee/cappuccino, liquorice, tar (as if I ever ate that) - very complex and full bodied. This is one of my absolute favourite beers - and has been for about 10 years. It’s the best danish beer for the money it costs and fantastic value for money (it doesn’t cost much more than mass-market lager) and I return to it time and time again.

Bottle via Mys Wap 4.0 (thanks dkachur!). Pours black with grey highlights (is that a contradiction?) and a way chunky tan head. Nose is awesome, chcolate, licorice and coffee. Taste starts with chocolate, then some coffee, some licorice and anise, some more chocolate and a LONG lingering coffee/cacao finish that is absolutely divine. I swear i taste some plums and raisins in that finish, as well as some oats and lactose. Damn there is hardly a dark beer flavor i do NOT taste in this divine brew...even some subtle smokiness...!! Bravo to Thisted Bryghus, this is a stellar world class beer.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a huge tan head that lasts a good ten minuets into this lovely beer. As I type there is still a thick layer of tan foam covering the beer, also leaves some awesome lace. Aroma is peated malt smokiness over chocolate. Flavor is smoky peated malt, chocolate, coffee and some raisin in the mix. The black licorice really comes through in the finish, along with bitter chocolate. Very creamy mouth feel, this would go great with chocolate cake. Wow! This was a huge surprise to say the least, I’d heard to was great but this one lives up to the hype, and only $4.99 a bottle. Better stock up.

Whenever I go home to Skagen on vacation, I head to my local Brugsen to see if they have Limfjords Porter. For some reason this beer is never around in Norway. It is somewhat odd, as most people who know anything about beer in Norway knows this one, and they love it. In the days before Mikkeller, Beer Here, Amager and all the rest, if there was one beer from Denmark in a beer book, for a while, it would be this one, and no other. A beer that tastes like expensive and exclusive riches, this storebought, somewhat in-asuming gem hits all the marks. Pours a thick and vicious looking black with a candy dark brown frothy head. The liquorish and ashy burnt flavours make my toes curl. This is the kind of beer you’d expect a doctor to proscribe to you for various health reasons. Before you stuble into the most amazing beer bars, brewpubs or beer shops, be they in Copenhagen or Aalborg. Do yourself a favour, go to a well stocked grocery store and buy yourself a couple of these bad boys!
