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 (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, 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!

Turboninja (130) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Tap@Konttori, Tampere, Finland. Medium aroma with salty licorice and some vanilla. Black reddish color with small/medium beige head. Ultra-strong taste dominating bit bitter salty licorice. Licorice, some roasted malts and hint of dark chocolate and vanilla. Wide taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with malts and licorice. Balanced. Strong body with light carbonation. Overall perfect Imperial Porter with own touch, though almost stout. Could have more roasted flavors.

jookos (2898) - FINLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Tap@urho. Black dark brown, cream light tan head. Nutty soft roasty malty nose, herbs, pine, or something bit different- sort of wintergreen vanilla. Full bodied, salmiak licorice. Bitter, almost harsh, weren’t it for tye massive sweets. Confusing beer. Flavourful, and pretty nice really, but strange. ...the vanilla, the pines.

RexTalionis (2774) - FINLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Draught. Black in color with a nice tan head. Quite strong roasted notes with coffee here, some sweeter ones too, feels like some dark fruits would be behind these. Lushy licorice and whiffs of smokey rye notes later on. Smoothish mouthfeel. Roasted coffee and dark chocolate with kind of soft spicy rye-breadyish notes in taste. Light nutty, some sweeter licorice and slightly vinous dark fruity vibes appears towards the finish.

tobias (204) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2015
500ml bottle: black pour with minimal sand colored head. Sweet coffee and chocolate aroma with hints of caramel. This beer is all about the malt. Hops take a backseat in both flavor and aroma. Bright bold flavors of coffee and chocolate dominate with hints of caramel and spice and a tinge of smoke. Impressive balance and drinkablity for such bold flavors! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
