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”.

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - JUL 31, 2009
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.

mikeyo1 (714) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2016
Bottle @ home, cellared five years. Best before 2012. Pours dark brown with a minimal head. Aroma of delicate milk chocolate, plums, dried figs, coffee, toffee, slight licorice, smoke, hints of charcuteries and ash. Medium to big body with good duration. Smooth texture. Taste is slightly sweet vinous with plums, figs, milk chocolate, toffee. Finish has coffee, licorice and more dark fruits. Lingering chocolate and balanced bitterness. Has aged incredibly well. Awesome.

Werckmeister (2473) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - NOV 8, 2016
0,33l bottle at home as part of Euro Local Swap courtesy of SlackerMads, big thanks for this one. BB 17.06.2017. almost black color, medium big coffee-colored head. smells of mint, spices, tobacco, milky, plums, nuts. ok smell. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes milky, spices, tobacco, cardboard, caramel, light grassy, nutty, marzipan. finishes lightly dry with notes of cardboard and tobacco. tastes rather simple and a bit on the cardboard-ish side, not a big fan, maybe some issues with my bottle.

neongolden (1289) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2016
(330ml bottle from boxbeers.dk) Pours black with a small off white head that fades to a ring. Aroma of roasted and burnt malt, moderate smoke, spent coffee grounds, ash, dark bread, slight baker’s chocolate core, a little liquorice, only slightly sweet from the malt core. Flavour is slightly more sweet but still dominated by impressive layers of roasted and burnt malts, ashy, somewhat smoky, bitter black coffee, some dried fruit, liquorice, a bit of dark caramel, earth, and fairly substantial liquorice that builds into the finish. Combined with burnt malt and coffee grounds, it makes for a dry bitter finish with lingering smoke. Medium bodied with slightly above average but smooth carb. Interesting burnt/smoked profile ends up being a better pair for liquorice than expected, a dry roasty beer with surprising depth.

Cimbasso (812) - - OCT 3, 2016
Bottle from Holmen1 - thanks Jan Magnus! Black as pitch with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malts and a massive taste of great complexity. Smokey flavours of bonfire and cigar ash. Lots of liquorice, coffee, dried fruit, Demerara sugar and pine resin. Excellent, rich and unctious mouthfeel. A really great stout, or ’double brown stout’ as it says on the label. A spectacularly fine beer from Thisted.

Idiosynkrasie (6714) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2016
500ml bottle [another Bartlebierian gem, tak og skål!]. Jet black colour with average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, beige to tan head. Bready, smoky, dark malty aroma, notes of pumpernickel, rust, bacon, coffee surrogate, chicory. Taste is bitter, roasty dark malty, slightly ashy, minimally metallic, notes of pumpernickel, a touch of treacle, char, liquorice, cautious honey interludes; full body, viscous, oily texture. Intense, heavy, neither flattering nor easy drinkable - hard and nicely dirty stuff.

ciocanelu (1613) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 30, 2016
Almost black color with brown head. Aroma has intense chocolate malt, fudge, caramel, roasted coffee beans, really complex. Taste starts with roasted chocolate malt and is followed by a weird, acrid flavor. It’s something I found in multiple baltic porters. Finish is roasty and bitter. Medium body with medium to light carbonation. Baltic porter is not really one of my favorite styles but this one is quite good.

tricksta_p (3757) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, touch of smoke, tobacco, dark chocolate, charcoal, touch of liquorice. Flavour is light sweet with good roasty bitter finish. Body is medium. A bit thinner than I expected, but I dig the strongly roasted aroma with a subtle touch of smoke. Good roasty bitterness. Tasty Porter, this must have been a true jaw-dropper back in the days.

dinkle50 (1384) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Jet black pour with a single finger espresso head. Very dry finish with loads of roasted malt. Smooth, creamy mouth with a sweet raisin like aroma. Hints of smoke, tons of flavor. A nicely crafted beer.

callmemickey (4344) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2016
Dark brown-black body, medium to thick pale tan head, and dense lacing. Rick, bittersweet chocolate, mild char, earth, roast, and coffee. Classic porter profile. Medium to full bodied, fairly dry in the finish.
