COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: På Amager Bryghus bliver vi vist aldrig færdige med at eksperimentere med det sorte og fyldige øl. Og trænger vi til inspiration, så henter vi den gerne udefra. Amager Rug Porter er således resultatet af et frugtbart samarbejde mellem det bedste i amarkansk og amerikansk brygkultur. Af vores sædvanlige base af fornærmende hårdt brændte malte udgør kornsorten rug denne gang hele 16%. Det giver en fantastisk sødlig fylde, en pirrende krydret kant, som kombineret med en diskret og balancerende syrlighed ikke overraskende giver mindelser om rugbrød. Dette er ikke en øl for de svage i troen, men vi er glade for resultatet og håber, at du vil være ligeså.

English: Amager Rye Porter is the result of fruitful cooperation between the best of Danish and American brewing cultures. It’s base is made of hard roasted malts and 16% rye. It adds a fantastic sweetness, and a titillating spicy edge, which, combined with a subtle and balanced acidity, is reminiscent of rye bread. This is not a beer for the weak, we’re pleased with the outcome and hope you will be too

phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - OCT 23, 2010
Black pour and curry brown head. Aroma has coffee, chocolate, good malt sweetness, lots of roasted caramel, alittle hops, the rye makes it really robust. Taste is thick roasted, roasted bitterness, coffee, hints of hops, still roast from the rye. The sweetness and the malts are overpowered by the heavy roast, but wins terrain again in the late after taste. Gets significantly better as the temperature rises. Really nice porter.

Jaksmart (407) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2010
Bottle, courtesy of Phredrik. Black pour, small brown head. Aroma is rather heavy, probably from the rye, lots of roast, coffee, faint liquorice, alcohol, faint dark fruits. Taste is also quite heavy-duty, with roast and coffee. Also some hops in the end. Very nice and challenging, while also being easy to drink.

joeneugs (3175) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 6, 2010
On tap at the Trappist. It pours a dark brown with an orangy tan creamy head. The aroma is complex with notes of cocoa, licorice, roasted grains, and a hint of dark fruitiness. The flavor is very potent with a strong dry spiciness, roasted grains, cocoa, coffee, hints of black licorice and molasses. A really great brew with a pretty potent bitter/roasted finish.

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2010
On tap @ The Cheeky Monk in Denver. Very heavy dark brown pour, with a creamy tan head that left substancial lace on the top. Smell is earthy malt and caramel-infused hot chocolate...perhaps a bit of a wood note as well. Tastes like a porter should; heavy notes of chocolate, some ground coffee, bits of toffee, bits of caramel. Medium bodied with subtle carbonation. Mild hop spice at the end. Very clean finishing with almost no aftertase, very light mouthfeel accompanying the robust, albiet medium bodied flavor. It’s a stereotype average porter, but I like porters. It’s a fine beer, just nothing special.

On tap at Olympen, Oslo. Black with brownish hue, small beige head. Rich, dry, smoked wood, roasted malt, tar aroma. Medium-to-full body, slick mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Rustic, verging on harsh, bitterness. Subdued sweetness - very well balanced.
