COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Tilbage i maj 2010 havde vi her på Amager Bryghus besøg af en mand, som ved første øjekast kunne ligne Frank Zappas barnebarn - eller måske en ukendt lillebror til Snoop Dogg. Men navnet var dog ikke hverken Zappa eller Snoop men derimod Laffler, Mr. John Laffler fra Chicago, Illinois. John er til daglig brygger på byens førende bryggeri Goose Island, og kontakten til ham opstod, da vi tidligere på året deltog i World Beer Cup i netop Chicago. Dengang spurgte vi John, om ikke han havde lyst til at brygge øl på Amager, som jo sådan lidt er Danmarks svar på Chicago – oh well, næsten… John fik helt frie hænder og kom op med noget så sjældent som en letrøget Rugstout – derved var Amager RyeKing født.
I glasset står Amager RyeKing sort som beg med et lysebrunt skum. Hele 22% af malten stammer fra rug, og vi vil godt garantere, at det kan smages. RyeKing har en fantastisk robusthed uden nogensinde at være tung, mens røgen aldrig bliver overdøvende, men i stedet tilføjer et lille pikant strejf. Bitterheden er tør og kontant og kommer fra både de ristede malte og fra Northern Brewer humlen. Vi er ret godt tilfredse med dette transatlantiske samarbejde, og er ikke et sekund i tvivl om, at du vil være ligeså, når du har smagt Amager RyeKing!
Brygget af: 8 malte, havregryn, 2 humler, amerikansk overgær og det gode Amar-vand.

Tasting @ De Molen
Dark, nice brown head. Funky aroma, like lemongrass. Taste at first is also lemon, then some sweetish chocolate and then lemon bitterness again. Infected?

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - FEB 15, 2012
Dark black, creamy medium tan. Nutty, roasted pine nuts, double cream. Sharp start but throughout the taste as well. Very full body, roasted. Hops are only to give a dryness. Hint of wild yeast. Tough beer, tough drink, quite nice. Taste grows on you. (At De Molen tasting)

Bottle. Didn’t get much of this, less than 10 cl actually, as I used it to marinate my cellar floor. Well, it poured a really dark brown body, almost black, topped by a two-finger, tan head that lasts. The aroma escaping my cellar floor and glass had loads of dark chocolate, as well as coffee, salty licorice, piney hoppyness and an almost boozy touch. It’s full-bodied and warming in the mouth, silky and smooth, with flavors of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, salty licorice and bitterness. Sweet, yet dry, finishing mostly dry. A bit thin in the finish maybe. Overall, a beer that’s both tasteful, balanced and sort of easy drinkable. Didn’t sense much of the smoked malt, would be interesting if that was beefed up a little bit. 111207
