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.

I stort sett svart öl med ett kraftfullt brunt skum. Av någon anledning så gillar jag inte doften hos rostade rågöl. Doften får mig att tänka på lätt brända grytpopcorn. Märkligt doftminne. I övrigt trevliga rostade toner i doften. Smaken är kraftfull med både en kraftig rostning och en ordentlig beska.

Ktwse (2241) - SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2012
Pours dark brown, almost black, with a low, frizzy tan head. Aroma is very stout-like, with tons of roasted malt, brown sugar, a hint of dark chocolate. There's some dark fruit as well, and maybe a hint of hops. Initial taste is sweet, creamy and malty, before giving up a slight bitterness. Body is medium full with low carbonation and a nice, creamy texture. Finish is a touch abrupt but there is a slight, lingering bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A perfect beer simply. Easy to drink with the meal. A bit expensive to buy, unfortunately. 49kr ($ 7) when it is in the shop. But clearly that this beer, I will buy again.

ClubGonzo (4237) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget in Torp, Uddevalla. Pours a deep brown, near-black body with a big creamy light beige head. Now THAT’s what I call a good-lookin’ beer! :-D Nose is dark malts and heavy rye tones, with light smokey hints of leather and licorice. The extremely assertive rye/dark malt tones continue in the taste, along with grains, licorice, leather, smoke and hints of alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel, medium carbonation. This one is definitely one of the best rye beers I’ve had; I just love it when the rye actually stands out a bit - and it should, at 22 % of the malt bill! :-) Very nice again from Amager.

Batch 426. 3 finger mocca-colored head that sinks to 5 mm, black body. Nose: Charcuterie and the slighest smoked notes. Aroma: Coffee, resin, dark chocolate and the slighest hint of smoked notes. Reminds me of an black IPA. Long dry bitter ending.
