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.

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2010
Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Exqusite looks! Deep black, no brown to be seen. Lovely staying, creamy, cappucino head. Wonderful duration and it leaves great, fat lacings on my glass. Aroma is elegant. Dark chocolate, dark berries, spiciness, rye bread (sour dough), some slight smoke. Low to medium carbonation, light and very dry mouthfeel with a little creaminess. Flavour is very different from a lot of other stouts. The rye is very evident, adding a lot of spiciness. Some roasted malts, mild smoke, light vinious. Mild dark chocolate. Heavy bitter hoppy finish. Long, lingering bitter finish with a good bitterness.
