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

Aroma is dark fruit with coffee undertones. Very balanced flavor of dark fruit, chocolate, coffee and a hoppy backbone. Thanks Boutip!

Great porter. Strong notes of roasted coffee malt. With a taste of oat or rye. Some fruitiness as well.

Pours a deep dark murky motor oil colour, had to pour it from a foot or so up just to get some head on, which was a fizzy slightly off white to beige colour. The aroma sweet, big black licorice, old wood, drawer, smoke, spice, and more licorice. The flavour also sweet, big on licorice, bit of spice, chocolate, and dry roastiness that leads to a sort of woody note, and mouth feel. Solid, interesting and thoroughly enjoyable.

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Rich, silky dark pour with a finely bubbled brown head. Chocolate liqueur, spicy rye, and a healthy dose of smoke. Ends bitterly. Velvety smooth and full bodied. A pleasure.

Bottle. Pours black with a fine tan head that leaves lacing. Aroma of raisin, rye bread crust, fruity yeast, dark malts, a bit of spice. Taste is sweet up front, medium - heavy mouthfeel, more dark bread, rye, spice and alcohol in the finish. Surprisingly hoppy too, balancing the big sweetness. Superb!

Amager Bryghus Rye Porter Very dark opaque pour with a thick clingy tan head. Smells very muc like a porter. Malty smokey and caramel with chocolat. Mouth is very tart. It fades into a chocolaty smokyness. Just a touch warming and boozy. TL/DR: great beer if you want to hear more follow +Big Dude Likes Food

DrSilverworm (6455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Taster on tap at Neon’s. Very dark brown color. Near black, though not opaque. Minimal khaki head, couple ropes and bits of lace. A surprising amount of smoke to this, I really like that. Good big roast, light spiciness. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, with a light bite, very light sweetness. Drinks like it might be 9-10% (I was expecting around 7%). Bigger body, has a nice chewy texture to it. Lighter carbonation. Pretty dry finish, though that may just be my palate at the moment. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, minimal sweet, light alcohol bite to it. Light bit of belgian style spiciness, nice light spicy rye tingle. Pretty damn tasty european rye imperial porter, better than expected. Awesome chewy texture, good light coffee notes.

Draft to taster. Looks good; cola with thin beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; dark malt, dark chocolate, and roast. Tastes Ike it smells with a nice, rich mouthfeel. Good beer.
