3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a nice dark black with clean copper tones in the pour and one finger of creamy tan head. Nose is rich and full of sweet coffee roast and mellow bakers chocolate, very nice and smooth with very little bitter notes and an almost java-ish quality. Flavor shows a bit more of the roast and acidity one would expect, black coffee and bittersweet bakers chocolate are compounded nicely by the spicy/grainy character of the rye. Medium body with a reasonably dry feel, nice.

Good beer, if perhaps a little overdone; could have been great. I let it warm a bit out of the fridge. Poured with a beautiful, thick, creamy huge, fluffy, tan head with brown highlights. Color is an opaque very dark brown. Aroma is dark roasty malts, overripe dark fruit, coffee and chocolate. Flavor is about the same as nose but with sharp edges. Alcohol stands out. Finish is like flavor and long. Not a session.

The pour reveals a pitch black color with a gorgeous, creamy, brown head. Pleasant aroma of rye, coacoa and roasted malt. The flavor is solid, there’s a nice match of coacoa, rye and roasted malt, there’s moderate sweetness and bitterness in the finish. The palate is really interesting, the body is full with a creamy, slightly vinous texture and the carbonation is medium to lively. This is really well-made and interesting, I love Amager and I love this beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark-chocolate brown with a thick and rather persistent light tan head. Aroma is strong and smoky and has an odd but not repulsive waxy component. Taste fills the mouth with malty and smoky flavors and a decidedly rye undertone, as well as a hoppy hint. Texture is restless and fizzy, not at all smooth, a bit thick and oily. Whether it’s Rye Porter or Rugporter, it’s worth seeking.

Sample glass at Øl og matfestivalen. Dark brown close to black, creamy brown head. Roasty aroma with chocolate, grain and herbs. Spiced taste with coffee, fruit, licorice, and a bitter end with long lasting taste of coffee in the mouth. Lovely porter!
