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.

Lukasmh (348) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2015 Tap. This one is rye bread! Pours pitch black with really nice creamy thick brown head which lasts for a long time. Aroma is hard roasted malts, roasted coffee, some spicy rye, anis, dark chocolate along some grassy hops. Makes is reminiscent of citric espresso. Taste is very roasty and dark. Dark malts and coffee along the anis and spicy rye. Dark bitter chocolate and same kind of espresso as aroma. Body is rather full and really smooth with dry roasty and bitter hoppy finish. Really nice for the ABV, feels like more and is also bit noticeable as i warms.

It has a thick rich body with a bit of roughness and semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with rough roasted malt, rye spice, woodiness, bitter bakers chocolate, spice, pine and rough earthy harshness. The finish has licorice, molasses and lots of rye spice. Good, but very rough tasting.
