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. Very dark brown with not much of a head. Fantastic aroma of chocolate, licorice, light coffee, some bread-ish and toasted qualities also . The flavour is sweet with caramel, chocolate, roast malt and licorice. The body is close to full. So smooth and so delicious.

TET (1992) - FINLAND - AUG 22, 2014
A very dark brown, almost black beer with a medium and beige head. A yeast particles in the glass. The great aroma with lots of enjoyable chocolate, coffee and some liquirice, rich and dark bread in the background. Complex taste has roastiness, salt liquirice, some chocolate, spicyness of rye combined together with herbal hops that turns the end to personal and aggressive. Medium+ bodied, drinkable. The great and challenging beer, not a cream candy, more like of rough enjoyment.

jstraw (1943) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Black with big, foamy, coffee head, fine lacing / Deep, intense nose of dark fruit, coffee, molasses, coconut / Full body, chewy, inky, sweet but with excellent balance, smooth and creamy, with long finish and a hint of bitterness / Flavors of plum, prune, dark roast coffee, fruit bread, cream, grass, lemon, caramel, rye / A real beauty. The difference between this sort of porter and an imperial stout escape me.
