Bottle shared by the Amager guys. Wow, first off... just wow, this has the most upfront rye taste of any beer and it is a wonderful thing. I thoroughly enjoyed this, what a unique taste and it is presented perfectly. Big rye flavor, very full, creamy, smooth, natural acidity is excellent, sour grain flavor, just full of wonderful spice, well attenuated, light chocolate back ground.

Bottled, thanks baggio! Almost completely black, rich head. Dusty fruity nose. Dry and well rounded with full body. Dense and somewhat bready with peppery alcohol coming through in a finish with growing bitterness.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer pours a dark ebony you can’t even shine a maglite torch through. The head is bubbly coffee brown and stays pretty stable making it a picture perfect glass of beer. The aroma smells of fruity esters and has a tingle of alcohol. A mouthful of this beer reveals carbonation a bit higher than what you might expect from a porter. And then there’s that taste. It has a salty note to it, like minerals dissolved in black coffee. Way less sweet than porters tend to be. That must be the characteristic brought to this beer by the rye it is made with. Just like rye bread tends to be more wholesome and less sweet. The palate lingers as the prickly effect of the carbonation dissolves. Dry notes of bitter hop and strong cocoa remain. Maybe a bit too much carbonation for that style of beer, but again a more than worthy addition to the Amager line of outstanding beers.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy dark brown look with a hige dense foamy brown head leaving lacings. The aroma is very powerfell yet leaving room for the more subtle notes. First off is grapefruit and pine hops with a strong coffee aroma, the subtle notes are of rye, milk chocolate and bread. Flavor is big aswell with the moutharoma being just as interesting as the initial hit. The bitterness seems to come mainly from the hops while the malts leave a sweet chocolate and bread feeling ending in a sleightly acidic and warming finish. Great!
