Pours thick black. Huge aroma of coarse dark bread, dark toffee, raisins and heavily roasted malts. Palate is massive, flavours of dark bread and caramel. The finish lingers for minutes with a profound bitterness. The best overall beer I’ve tasted to date, a shame they don’t make it any more.

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.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Söt choklad, malt, rågbröd och rått kött i en magnifik och perfekt balanserad doft. Toner av katrinplommon och en aning blommighet (!) slår igenom.
Totalt ogenomskinlig, kolsvart brygd. Ett mockafärgat skum som halveras något för snabbt men som har trevliga efterlämningar.
Smaken har en maffig men mycket mjukt presenterad rostning. Kaffe, mörk choklad, tendens till lakrits och en viss nötighet. Eftersmaken är enastående i sin välbalanserade och mycket långa beska.
En suveränt silkeslen och stor kropp. Överträffas av ingen.
Kanske den perfekta stouten, enligt mitt förmenande. Extra roligt att den då är brygd på råg. En något större komplexitet i doft och smak och den hade fått full pott.

If you like Rye Stouts as much as me, then this is the beer for your. Strong, bitter flavours, great mouth feel, no watery flavors and a good hop character. Another fine co-operation between Danish Amager and an American brewery.

RyeKing was one of the beers I picked up at Ølbutikken. It has an intense flavour of liquorice and liquid sour Russian rye bread, a little salt and a deep bitterness. There is a malty body that is able to cope with all of this and balance it in a strange way.
Charcoal in the dry finish. Mouth-watering, and a great candidate for further barrel aging.

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.

Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is sharp roast, some rye, touch of Orval like sourness. Infected? Flavour is deep bitter & dry liquorice, roast, some wood in the finish. Big roast with a touch of Orval like brett, what’s not to like?
