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

joeneugs (3120) - 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 (3965) - 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.

lusikka (6049) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2010
500 ml bottle @ Gastropub Nordic. Rated @ 19.5.2010.
Pours a cloudy brown colour with a large off-brown head. A lot of yeast on the bottle. Heavy malty aroma with rye, caramel and hop notes. Medium sweet taste with roastiness, chocolate, pine and rye of course. Very distinctive and original taste. Very dry finish. Well balanced porter.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2010
Tap at Olympen. Black as all hell with a surge of tiny dark brown bubbles rushing to the surface to form a fat, dense, creamy light brown head on top that stays the duration. Much sticky lace left along the glass wall. Gorgeous. Aroma is very burnt, loads of coffee, cocoa, sour burnt notes, dark milk chocolate, ash, a hint of smoke, something almost woody, and some citrus and caramel. Flavour profile is intense. A solid dose of coffe and cocoa, dark sour berries, burnt sourness.. The malt sweetness really has got a lot to deal with here, but it’s well balanced. No alcohol to be detected anywhere. It’s pretty raw, but it’s definitely good drinkin’. Long, long semidry finish. Nice and thick mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. I really liked this one. First porter I’ve really liked in a good while. Perhaps because it’s thicker in the mouth than most. Relatively complex, very intense, delicious mouthfeel.. all over very solid stuff.
