COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

It poured a black color with a light tan head. The aroma was of faint chocolate and some roasted barley. The taste was coffee, chocolate, bready rye, smoke and hoppy grapefruit. Very good.

8.5% ABV. Imperial porter. This tapped out an intriguing turbid brown suspension which looked more like commercial mocha mix and my first though was "end of keg". It had no head and the nose was dense with darkly hardroasted malt. The palate was reminiscent of a freshly pulled hunk of black bread. Buried in this wonderful rye-filled, yeasty musk were dark stewed fruits like prunes and dates. Interesting floury mouthfeel. Nice bitter hop finish. I guess this goes on my "once in a lifetime" list.

Shark_Pants (469) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2015
Deep darkest brown pour with small ruby highlights and fizzy beige head. Sweet aromas of treacle and licorice, with a little port wine, vanilla, leather and alcohol. Lots of dark chocolate in the taste, licorice, treacle, coffee, with light vinous notes too. Bitter and spicy hop/rye mid-palate, dry and roasty finish. Light-med bodied and smooth as silk. Excellent.

zacgillbanks (3347) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. An inky black beer pours with a thin tan head. It has a very rich liquorice and chocolate flavour, orange marmalade and vanilla notes followed by creamy vanilla and blackcurrant on the finish. Excellent!

On tap (for a short time I presume) at Roundhouse in Hong Kong. Excellent beer all around. Tasted it a while ago so can’t give specific notes but one of my favourite. Strong bitterness. Pours beautifully. Will write more next time I try it!

r464 (2074) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2015
Very dark brown with a tannish brown head. Thick, smooth, and toasty malt. Hints of cocoa, coffee, and char. A bit of nuts and toast, woodiness, and earthiness. Very full.

tom10101 (4020) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2015
Bottle (500 ml) as Amager Rye Porter. Split 3-ways with JulienHuxley and Minderbinder.

Appearance: Dark brown with a medium easy to revive beige head and little lacing.

Aroma: Molasses, perfumy notes, rye spiciness, peppery notes and light fruitiness( berries).

Taste: Molasses, peppery notes, rye spiciness, perfume notes, light berries and liquorice.

Palate: Medium body. Moderate carbonation. A bit silky. Peppery finish.

Overall: Too perfumy, which has probably something to do with the rye because this is the exact same impression I have with Goose Island Cherry Rye and Backyyard Rye. Lack a bit of balance. Other than that, it’s tasty and enjoyable.
