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

Bottle shared at puzzl’s place: Deep muddy brown pour with a thick khaki head. Huge chewy rye presence in the aroma- almost chocolaty. Very chewy body as well. So damn thick in flavor with a chewy dark rye bread heartiness, lots of chocolate notes yet it remains dry with a rich hop presence to dry out the back. This is really good.

.5 liter bottle shared by puzzl. Pours a deep dark brown with a good lasting head. Aroma is spicy earthy rye malts, chocolate malts, green grassy herbal hops anise- spice and bready with hints of tar and minty licorice. Big rye malt flavor, earthy zesty spicy malts, mostly clean, toasty biscuit, burtn chocolate malts, toffee, leather earth and a smooth medium to big bitter finish. Good stuff.

shared at puzzl’s tasting: Arouma is amazing; rye bread and minty spices. Pours black with a tan head, nice boozy edge with molasses and prunes. I wasn’t sure if the dark malts would mix well with the rye, but this was good.

Bottle from Anker. Great, big, fluffy head. Tons of rye in the flavor, very spicy, decently thick body, with a chocolate, rye, spice aroma. Very full and rich. Not sure if there is much complexity here, the rye is a bit overwhelming, but this is good stuff.

16-JAN-2010, bottle @home, from "Fish & Beer" Pours very dark brown with nice high brown head. Nose is very expressive with loads of liquorice, coffee and chocolate. Very roasted, very full, almost fat on the palate. High bitterness from hops, and a very long aftertaste that is very creamy. Again a fine effort from the "local" brewery:)

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2010
(Bottled) Very dark brown with a small, firm and tanned head. Strong aroma of licorice, with very evident, liquourish alcohol, and lots of roasted malt. Flavor is more straightforward, with licorice dominating, and less alcohol than expected. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, slight alcohol burn. A bit like DH2 diluted, but with some strange Belgian yeast feel. Interesting, yet not the most balanced.

Bottle at home. Pours black with a beige, rocky and lasting head with some lacings. Low sweetness with some dryness. Strong hoppy aromas. Aromas of rye towards the end. Hints of toasted malts and tiny hints of alcohol. Full bodied. Medium to soft carbonation. Long bitter finish with more rye notes. Well balanced.
