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.

Rune (7361) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2012
500ml bottle, batch 426, via Gaute. Pours a big, tan-coloured, bubbly head covering a more or less jet black body. Inviting aroma of cocoa malts with bread and hints of anise. Cocoa, roast, and coffee beans in flavour reinforced by dusty hops and followed by a lingering and smooth malt bitter ending. Full bodied. Sits just right (at home in Tromsø, 27.10.2012).

daje (1875) - NORWAY - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle from Kihoskh, enjoyed september 15th 2012. Black bodied beer with a foamy light brown head. Malty aroma with roast, light smoke, rye, chocolate and prunes. Lovely. Taste is also pretty malty, with chocolate, coffee, honey. Bitterness is pretty good and is in no hurry to leave the party. The bitterness combined with a taste of dark bread and cocoa makes a great aftertaste.

Bottle (SBWF2012)
Lovely rich aroma, bready and with a fair bit of coffee too. Lovely mellow palate, smooth but not too sticky or sweet. Great full taste, mellow but rich roast. Coffee and a bit of cream. Delicious finish - more of the roasty highlights from the taste. Full. Coffee. Yum!

Melker (186) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle. So the beer is black and the head is big and light brown. Theres not that much smell to it but i definitely get milk chocholate, roasted malt, coffee and some vanilla. Tastes sooooo smooth! Dark, bitter chocholate and roasted, sweet malts. Nice bitter aftertaste. To me this was perfectly corbonated and the body and texture were nice and mellow.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - OCT 6, 2012
Dark brown/black beer with a big brown head that quickly disappears and leaves alot of lacing. Smoky and sweet aroma. Good malty flavour, with the same smoky character as in the aroma. Also some wood in there, maybe it’s the rye I’m getting.

50 cl. bottle sampled thx. to Sebletitje. As was stated at the table this was awesome because the bottle has an american flag on it, also a Viking. Apparently this is a collaboration with Goose Island which sort of explains the american flag, also why it is significantly better than what I would expect from Amager. I have absolutely no idea what the text on the label means since it is in Danish but it looks pretty damn random, mentioning among other things, the man known now as Snoop Lion, Frank Zappa and 22 %. I assume now that they are mentioning people born in Chicago. Pours old school black with a patchy tanned head. Nose is yummy sweet combination of mocha, rye and spices, some chocolate and lightly hoppy. Taste is a light roast with oodles of yummy sweet mocha, light coffee, some light complimenting hops, tad molasses, on the lighter side of bitter finish, some rye structure and tad flavour build into it, small hint of vinous, tad dark fruits with a medium, smooth body. This is the good stuff.
