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

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle: Poured a dark black color porter with a large light brown foamy head with good retention with some lacing. Aroma of rich black chocolate malt notes with light spicy notes. Taste is also dominated by rich chocolatey malt notes with light dry roasted malt notes and light peppery notes in the finish. Body is quite full with some creamy notes with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Light green hoppy notes are also detectable but very subtle. Enjoyable porter with nice level of drinkability but falling a bit short on the complexity side.

500 mL bottle. Pours dark black with a medium khaki head that leaves a nice lace. Aromas of chocolate, spicy grain, breakfast roast coffee, tobacco and dark bread. Mildly sweet, offset by roasted grain bitterness and acidity and a touch of hop. Full bodied with a pleasant, coating mouth feel. Light to moderate carbonation. Spoiled by lots of good strong porters available in Ontario this year; this is quickly becoming one of my preferred styles.

i usually love rye beers but this was too dry and left a bitter film on the tongue. not much flavor otherwise.

Strange aroma and the flavor was equally weird. It left a coating on my tongue that I've never gotten from a rye before. Maybe these imports are losing something in shipping. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Murky dark brown pour, light brown head. Aromas of sweet chocolate, rye spiciness, lactose, barnyard aromas. Flavours of chocolate, grains, rye, a little funk. Thick mouthfeel and well-hidden ABV. Quite interesting, and pretty tasty.
