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

Temptation (244) - - JAN 21, 2013
Simply amazing. Deep cocoa and sweet chocolate, fresh cereals and black bread aromas. Perfect bittersweet taste, with hints of coffee, cream and toffee in the back. Impressive, probably the best imperial porter I’ve ever tasted.

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 (2777) - 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
