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

Cybercat (4288) - Georgia, USA - JUN 5, 2011
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!

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2012 Rerate, 500 ml bottle, batch #461, will soon be available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8.5%. Black colour, moderate tan head. The dryish aroma has notes of cold strong coffee and roasted malts, hints of woodwork and unsweetened liquorice. The flavour has initially some sweetness, but ends dry and very roasty, with a solid hoppy bitterness to boot. Notes of strong coffee again, hints of unsweetened liquorice and dark bitter chocolate. I’m upping it one point. Original rating: At Copenhagen Beer Festival. Black colour. Moderate roasty (coffee) notes in both aroma and flavour, hints of rye bread. Drinkable, absolutely nothing wrong with it, but as this is Amager, I expected something even better. BTW, we brewed a homebrew porter last year with exactly the same ratio of rye malts in it, and thought it was better than this. Did not taste them side by side, though - and we might have been slightly biased, or slightly drunk ...

Copenhagen Beer Festival. Opaque black stout. Thick creamy tan head. Interesting stout, soft and silky but has that distinctive rye spiceyness. Smooth and tasty.

20110517 500ml bottle from State Line. Perfect appearance for a strong porter, it is very dark mahogany with huge, lasting, sheeting tan head. Hoppy, floral, orange-tinged aroma with nice cocoa notes and some mild grassiness, plus some juniper and menthol herbal undertones. Soft, creamy mouthfeel with medium carbonation and minimal sweetness. Chalky, mildly ashy finish with some dry citrus bitterness. Light astringency. For a strong beer, this is a nice pairing with mild cheese, like the local aged farmers cheese I’ve got here, or I think fontina would be nice. Amager always please me, but there’s a definite house character that I could see others finding off-putting, notably the minty notes I seem to find in most of their beers.
