Danish: Historisk har der hersket tætte bånd mellem Amager og Nederlandene. For næsten 500 år siden lokkede Christian d. II således en flok hollændere her til øen for at lære amarbønderne at dyrke avancerede afgrøder som hvidkål og rødbeder. Og det blev vi skam ret gode til.
Det er disse varme og venskabelige forbindelser, som Amager Bryghus nu tager op på ny ved et samarbejde med Hollands førende mikrobryggeri De Molen, som har gjort sig kendt her i landet ikke mindst via de årlige ølfestivaller, hvor bryggeriets både delikate og potente øl har gjort mangt en festivalgæst mere end almindeligt rundforvirrede.
Amager Double Cuvée er en blandingsøl bestående halvt af ”De Molen Cuvée” og halvt af specialbrygget ”Amager Special Cuvee” fra vores egen produktion, som vi har haft liggende og lagre i hele to år. Vi er ikke vant til at bruge så fornemme ord her på bryghuset, så måske skal vi lige forklare, at ”Cuvée” betyder en særlig batch eller et særligt eksklusivt blend. Og det synes vi er pænt betegnende for dette unikke samarbejdsbryg, som der kun er flasket 190 små flasker af.
Op uw gezondheid!

Bottle. Dark red/brown pour, lasting light carbonation and an aroma of sour cherries and wood. Flavor is very alcoholic dark stone fruits, lightly malty and mildy sour. Not bad, but I wish the ABV would have been dialed back.

portableparty (1909) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours murky amber brown with a thin fizzy off whit khaki looking head that leaves a wispy film and collar. Aroma has sour yet more funk yeast and dirty rotten cherry and hidden malt. Taste is funky sour alcohol subtle cherry and malt with yeast and cough drop. Palate is thin fizzy and drying with warming alcohol.

(bottle courtesy of Papsøe, huge thanks! Batch 0A; bottle 54/190; BBD: September 2014) Pours a slightly hazy, dark copper with little, tan head. Aroma is peat, plastic, artificial and not really funky. Medium carbonation, oily texture and a strange, malty slightly sour finish. Flavour is quite weird somewhat green, slightly sour and maybe malty.

250mL bottle, sent from St. Fun (thanks a lot, Josh), pours a filthy, murky dark brown with an amber tinge and a quickly-dissipating medium fizzy beige head. Aroma brings out vinegar, tart red berries, wood and some mild wild character. Flavour is both sweet and sour, bringing out notes of candied sugar, vinegar, and tart red berries. Palate is extremely acidic and extremely carbonated - not bringing out the flavours even close to optimally. Nice enough flavours, but the body is messed up. Not very enjoyable due to this.

Cloudy dark brown beer. Thin biscuit coloured head. Unpleasant nose of pee! Softish dry palate, over dry. Milky sweetness underpins malty coca cola sourness. Some aniseed and a dry finish. Warming afterglow. An okay beer but I was expecting something much better.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2012
Bottle with thanks to Papso. Pours a murky light brown with dark tan coloured head. Aromas of sour stone fruits. Some maly sweetness. Flavours show heaps of the malt with decent vinegar sournes to finish.

Pour thanks to Aaron, awesome, out of 180 mL bottle, dark brownish red very opaque pour with fizzy tan head, dissipates quickly but to be expected. Aroma brings notes of some plum, cherry, other dark fruits with some cocoa powder and vinegar notes, slight hint of alcohol in there. Taste is creamy chocolate and dark fruits, hints of rum soaked fruits with a touch of warming alcohol, touch of vinegar but really restrained compared to the aroma, a bit of thin grassy and caramel notes, spicy notes of cumin and ginger, finishing fairly alcoholic. Very, very unique but not the best blend of brews, some weird spices as well.

Bottle courtesy of my secret santa. Thanks Mads! Cloudy, reddish brown appearance with a big bubbly, tan head. Tart, dark raspberry, plum, really spicy, almost curry-like, tangy aroma. Thick vinegar, rich spicy, dark cherry, plum, acidic, slightly roasty, somewhat boozy, fruity flavor. Spicy, vinegar aftertaste. Not my favorite.

The bottle is a slow gusher; it pours a cloudy brown color, with big frothy head. The sour aroma is initially very nice, fruity and vinous too (7.5); then it turns into dusty chocolate, with sourness, Chinese spices, wood (6.5).
The carbonation is too high, disturbing; there is a mixed flavor of chocolate, dark caramel, limited residual sweetness, some woody sourness, hints of liquorice; adding to all this, also a quite high alcohol perception.
The final shows caramel and chocolate, with light and soft woody astringency.
Chocolate, alcohol and sourness are difficult to match: chaotic.

Bottle. I had fortunately kept some in my cellar. Rich aroma of malt, chocolate, nuts. spices and alcohol. Dark brown colour with huge beige head. Very dry flavour with wood, roasted and smoked malt and some plums or raisins.
