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.

pushkinwow (2195) - Ottawa, Ontario, - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle from Angst. Dark black with a gorgeous creamy brown head that eventually fades. Nice roasted and sweet malt, molasses, bittersweet chocolate, resiny hops, some anise, bit of plum, brown sugar, vanilla. Full body and lower carbonation, bitter with sweet undertones, some fruit, bit of alcoholic kick, becomes nice and dry with a hoppy roasted malt and a great finish. This is a delicious beer.

Tap (VI FDP). Barwa czarna, mega bezowa piana, obfita, gesta. Aromat czekoladowy z delikatnymi nutami palonymi. W smaku czekoladowe, delikatne, glagkie, alkohol swietnie ukryty, tylko przyjemnie rozgrzewa od srodka. Pije sie bardzo przyjemnie.

tomekboniek (178) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 29, 2015
Beczka. Barwa czarna nieprzejrzysta z niską beżową piana. Piana różnej wielkości utrzymująca się do samego końca. Aromat palonych słodów, kawy. W smaku dominuje kawa z czekoladą z wysoką palonością. Piwo prezentuje charakter wytrawny, goryczka dobrze zaznaczona. Brak pełni jak na dobrego Imperiala przystało.Pozostaje gorzki posmak w ustach i duży niedosyt po takiej kooperacji świetnych browarów.
