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

TAR (2671) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - JAN 16, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2013 Blackened chestnut. Creamy but dying off-tan head. Intriguing nose of carob, ink-soaked blueberries, shoe polish, hazelnut, smoky roast, vanilla. Distant peppery hoppiness. Strong presence of alcohol. Soft, minuscule carbonation. Opens with a gritty roast punch and an immediately ensuing tar-covered espresso bean cushion laced with silky, ink-soaked dark fruits. Massive amounts of tacky, tongue-caressing residuals, yet never cloying due to the ripe estery opulence and relentless roast. Toasted pumpernickel bread snugly nestles into the palate and lends ample crispness to allay the sugary onslaught. Expressively earthy and peppery hop bitterness supplies the body with additional layers of spicy spruce resin. Wealth of smoky roast dries it out as oily java and meaty molasses deepen the endless malt decadence. Bouncy vanilla-bean vibrancy adds lift to the center, keeping the colossal sugar content in check. Slippery rye fruitiness and a wheatlike twang also join in to help bring balance as they align with the dark, plush fruity esters akin to pen ink, blueberry and blackcurrants. Silky, edgeless malt finish, and sublimely plush as well, with rich, velvety truffles, fudge, and liquefied toffee lingering. This is a very unique and singular porter seemingly designed with the wine lover in mind as it’s quite the explosion of fruit. A fun one!

I love porters, I love rye, not too surprisingly I love this beer. Along with the usual porter notes this one features licorice, light smoke and of course rye spice.

Stoned99 (1233) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
Bottle From Craft Beer Cellar. Aroma: roasted malt, smokey and ashes, a tad of bacon and something that I guess is rye. App: dark burgundy, minimal to no beige head. Taste and palate: full smooth and silky body, medium sweetness, medium dry bitter finish. Overall: a fine porter. Well I was expecting a bit more but as it gets warmer it gets easier to drink. Probably updated this rating 5 times. The lesson is drink warmer to cooler.
