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.

hopscotch (9065) - 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 (4622) - 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.

csbosox (1223) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Once again the android Ratebeer mobile app didn’t record my rating, gotta love that...Anyway, the ever generous Hopscotch shared this one with me. Spicy herbal rye aroma, pepper, dark chocolate, and light smoke. Thick bodied, almost oily, but with a very a balanced finish. Spice, pepper, chocolate and roast flavors. Very enjoyable.

phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - DEC 20, 2010
Pours black with a nice and creamy nazelnut brown head. Aroma is a punch of hops and roasted malts. The roast is really robust, bitter cocoa powder, a fairly obvious smoke component, some roasted nuts and a bit of caramel. Hops are piney, a bit lemony and add a nice touch to the heavy roast. The taste is very roasted as well. Bitter, bitter espresso, hints of smoke, a wee bit of burnt caramel sweetness and just hops by the bucketload. Insanely bitter for a stout, just a facepunch of bitterness in the after taste. This is like a psyched up hybrid between Beer Geek Breakfast and Dark Hops. Screw balance, just hop it up. But as a hop lover, I can only indulge in the bitterness. A good beer to end the day.
