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

TET (1616) - 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 (1914) - 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.

Frothmeister (551) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours almost black, with a one finger tan head. Heavy aromas of molasses, raisin, light cinnamon, dark chocolate, light acidic notes, and sponge toffee. Smells SO delicious. As for taste, HUGE rich molasses notes with a mineral streak up front that leads into light ash, light fruity notes, with some very forward bitterness in the dry finish. The beer is GIANT. If I’m learning anything, it’s that the brewers of Scandinavia like their dark beer exactly like I do. This is excellent.

Dark beer with a frothy brown head. Sweet nose with some roasted grains. This is a very sweet porter with lots of brown sugar and molasses, sweetened coffee, and milk chocolate. Some puffed grain softness and some rye bite in the finish. Very tasty, full flavored porter.
