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.

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2011
It’s pitch-black with a brown, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, rye, licorice, but also a little barnyard. The mouth-feel is nice. The flavour has notes of hard-roasted rye, salty licorice and a little sourness/barnyard. I cannot find smoke in neither aroma nor flavour, and the barnyard is a draw-back for me.

Dry earthy roasty rye taste with coffee and charcoal notes. Nice. Has awesome character, and is very balanced and harmonic. (0.5l bottle, Ølbutikken, Copenhagen.)

Christian (10778) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2011
Pitch black with a lasting tan head. Aroma dominated by chocolate, with some fruit, and weaker hints of smoke, spice and licorice. Lots of hop flavour along with licorice and roasted malt. Hoppy and bitter finish

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pours pitch black with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Never-ending retention. The aroma is a bold, scorched blend of charcoal, molasses, pouch tobacco and tons (I mean TONS) of dark chocolate and espresso to create the most wonderful, hearty, Cuban-like mocha. Full-bodied with a plush mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor supplies lots of hop and scorched black malt bitterness with a nice, not-so-subtle compliment of rye spiciness. Burnt, bitter, espresso and dark chocolate finish. There is absolutely nothing subtle about this overbearing, bad-to-the-bone brew. World class bottle of beer courtesy of Plovmand!

Borresteijn (4402) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2010
50cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Black colour, beige-brown head. Aroma of tart berries, hard roasted malts, light citrus hops, bitter chocolate. Flavour is light sweet, malty, hard roasted malts, very bitter, espresso, plain chocolate, light tart berries, hard roasted bitter light hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Don’t really know if the tartness was intended, spoiled it a bit for me.
