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.

jacobwennbom (353) - Uppsala, - 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.

JStax (3665) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle pour into a brandy snifter. The beer is dark brown to black with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has a lot of the rye character coming through. I get a big spice and chocolate character in the taste. Bigger body and medium carbonation. The rye spice is really the dominant character in this beer. Very nice.

Sigmund (5696) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2015
500 ml bottle, batch #272, from the brewery. BB date 07.2014. ABV is 7.7%. Pitch black colour, moderate brown head. Aroma of liquorice and black rye bread, also coffee and fruity hops, just a hint of smoke. The flavour has roast malts, coffee and liquorice, also piney hops, black rye bread and a hint of smoke. Good beer. Gets even better as it warms up a little. I’m upping a point or two.

500 ml bottle. Black body with a small brown head. Strong aroma of dark malt, chocolate, smooth roasted coffee and rye bread. Flavor is smooth, sweet, dark roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, rye and nice bitterness. Fine balanced body and good, long lasting aftertaste. Another nice one from Amager.

bytemesis (4468) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Bottle. Pours inky black, large puffy brown head, creamy and slow to dissipate, nice lacing left behind. Aroma is roasty, hoppy, pine, chocolate, anise, tobacco, ashtrays, coffee. Flavor is pretty light sweet, quite bitter, a hint of burned rubber, but very roasty, borderline burned malts, lots of anise and dark unsweetened cocoa, ashtrays. Fullish body. This is a solid one for those who like their impys (and lets face it, this sits right on that border), with low sweetness and high bitterness.

alteregoo (282) - POLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Po przelaniu do szkła tworzy się gęsta obfita, brązowa piana, trwała i pięknie oblepiająca szkło, barwa ciemno brązowa, prawie czarna z nieśmiałymi rubinowymi refleksami. Aromat mocno palony, kawowy, kakaowy, ale nie słodki, bardziej gorzki koniak, trufle. Po ogrzaniu się dochodzi dojrzałe mango i marakuja. W smaku paloność i spora goryczka na pierwszym planie, w głębi czekoladowo-waniliowe nuty, włoskie orzechy, posmak whisky, torfu i starego drewna. W odczuciu lekko ziemiste, średnia w stronę wysokiej pełni, nieduża słodycz marcepanowa, delikatna kwaśność od palonych i wędzonych słodów. Nagazowanie niskie, w afterteasie suszone śliwki węgierki, cygaro i chmielowo-popiołowa gorzkość. Alkohol perfekcyjnie ukryty. Raczej wytrawny i ekstremalny Stout, z z nieco zalegającą goryczką zapożyczoną od Black IPA i agresywnością RISa w intensywności doznań sensowycznych. Oczywiście brak tu nieco więcej ciała, ale i tak jest dobrze. Piwo intrygujące, skierowane zdecydowanie do beer geeków i hop headów.

[4/28/15] Draught at Taphouse in Copenhagen. Black with a nice light brown head. Nice roasty aroma with dark chocolate and some coffee. Bittersweet flavor, roast, with chocolate, espresso, and a burnt bitter finish. Full-bodied.
