Year of New Beer: Beer Geek Limfjordsporter, Thisted Bryghus/Mikkeller (Denmark)

Written By: Dion on 06/25/2017

This already roasty, chocolatey brew is kicked up a notch as the folks at Gralehaus give this tap the "Coffee Rocket" treatment, running the beer through their house blend of Intelligentsia before it hits the glass. The nose is rewarded with bold waves of coffee bean, bitter chocolate, burnt sugar, and hints of licorice. On the tongue, the coffee presence is again noted as it blends into a charred roast with traces of caramel and a light fennel. Dry with an earthy bitterness and near smokiness on the finish. A nice pairing to my breakfast of Biscuit and Duck Gravy, but over-the-top good at balancing the shared sweet dishes at our table, a cookie butter crepe and a delicious French toast.
