Thisted Bryghus Limfjords Porter Double Brown Stout

This is the first time we have seen this beer since 2011!!

Thisted Bryghus Limfjords Porter Double Brown Stout...$7.99 / pint
Rated 99/100 Ratebeer
"Baltic Style Porter"
Limfjords Porter came to Thisted Bryghus after seven years of experiments at an urban brewery in Aalborg where the brewmaster of Thisted Bryghus used to work before it was closed. THisted bought the name in 1986 and in 1997 the brewmaster finally decided that he had achieved the perfect composition of malts. The most notable ingredients are smoked malt, rye malt, and licorice from England. Limfjords Porter is the Brewmaster's pet project and is often called "The Gentleman of Beers". -- importer

Notes from the late Michael Jackson:
"... The surprise climax to the tasting was labelled in English as a Double Brown Stout and in Danish with the local name of Limfjords Porter. Like other Danish beers in this style it was bottom-fermenting, but it was full of character, a dense, brownish, head over a slatey, black, brew; full-bodied and lightly oily; a touch of burnt-grass, rooty, peatiness; a long, warming, finish, and an alcohol content of 7.9%. The flavors were very complex, and I was not surprised to hear that both smoked malt and licorice were used." -- Michael Jackson
