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.

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.

50cl bottle via trade with rlgk, thanks Ronny. Batch#426, BB 03/2015. Brune foncée, col moka crémeux. Arôme est malté grillé-caramel et torréfié, sur ce bouquet très agréable de seigle laissant une pointe épicée. Se complète avec un nez léger d’agrumes houblonnées. Le tout reste dominé par le malt. Palais alterne houblonné et un palais solide malté entre café, grillé avec ce fini grains/seigle donnant une rondeur en bouche le tout sur ce profile épicé du même seigle. Fin de bouche présente une fine amertume houblonné dans les agrumes. Au final, une belle surprise, pour moi plus une sorte de Black IPA que un stout.

Marsiblursi (2999) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2012
(Bottle) Pours black with a large and creamy brown head. The aroma holds minty, spicy, bready rye and dark chocolaty, cocoa-driven and tary roast up front with undertones of smoked meet, wet asphalt, wet stone, black berries, green hops, citrus peel, raisins, dates, figs, cold coffee, earth, tobacco, chilly oil, green bell pepper and nougat. The nose is clean and fairly intense. The flavour is light sweet, near medium bitter and tiny acidic with notes of balanced roast, friendly yet fresh hops, minty/bready rye and complex earthy notes of tobacco and dark fruits. The mouthfeel is round, smooth and velvety with a tiny tartness. Soft, tiny crisp carbonation. Clean and well balanced finish. Medium to full bodied.

Bottle thx to benzai. Pitch black colour with a very nice tanned, light brown head. Smells chocolate milk, sweet, deep.. Perfect! Tastes dark chocolate, roasty, deep, bitter. The aftertaste is what makes this beer lovely. The initial taste is a bit flat and soft, but the aftertaste is amazing. Medium body, great carbo. Oh boy the aftertaste..

jacobwennbom (352) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2012
Pitch black. Brown head, not lasting. Niether nose nor taste is very aggressive. Sort of mild even. Balanced. There is sweet licorice, burnt malt as well as à sort of yeasty sensation. Very good indeed.

SirLimpsalot (2105) - SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2012
Lätt rökt doft med tydlig brända toner. Vätskan är tjock och krämig. Smaken är bränd, mustig, trivelige kaffetoner och en lång eftersmak. Mycket bra. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
