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.

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.

mateuszk (2056) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 3, 2016
Draught. Almost black with tan head. Aroma of chocolate, rye bread, roastiness and some fruits. In taste sweet with rye sour note, flavour is chocolate, coffee. Medium body, soft carbonation, solid bitteness and some alcohol in finish. Really solid stout.

Jest wpisany jako FES, ale spokojnie mógłby być RISem. W aromacie sporo palności, kawy, ciemnej czekolady. W smaku podobnie - paloność i czekolada, trochę mniej kawy, wychodzą gdzieniegdzie jakieś słodsze nuty, ale ogólnie smakuje jak bardzo klasyczny, palony i raczej wytrawny RIS. Goryczka wysoka, kawowa, może nieco za ostra. Poza tym piwo bardzo dobrze ułożone.

HKdIPA (678) - HONG KONG - SEP 3, 2016
Draught at TAPS in KL. Pitch black pour with a little tan head that sticks around the edges. Aroma isn’t too strong - general roasted notes with some burnt dark chocolate. Taste is also sort of unremarkable - solid straight down the middle stout with some dark dark chocolate, coffee, a hint of licorice but not in a way I dislike. Super creamy palate, but not too thick. This is the beer’s best feature I think. Solid but wouldn’t get again sort of a disappointment.

I drank this beer yesterday at the Pibar Lausanne at the draft. It is a perfect foreign stout, we could say that it is an imperial stout. The color is black and there is a small brown foam. The carbonation is low but it is normal for the style. The taste is simply powerful, roasted malt, coffee, hop, vanilla, licor, plum. It is just wonferful and you drink it step by step. It is the paradise on the earth.

Holmen1 (4813) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2016
Fra fad på DØE Lokomotivhallen mai-16 (dag 2) med Steven: kulsort med kort skum. Aroma af mørkbrente malter og ditto kaffe. Rugsyrligheden er påtagende i smagen, sammen med kaffe og overmodne solbær. Lang og tør eftersmag. 10 cl var akkurat nok.

Nocturne (1795) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2016
Tap at Kufle i Kapsle, Warsaw. Near black with a brown head. Looks the part. Notes of liquorice, molasses and roast dominate things. Slight spiciness from the grain and quite a chewy mouthfeel. Good stuff but a bit below my expectations.
