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

Aroma of chocolate and hints of coffee. The taste is mostly chocolate and some rye/spices in the background. A little overcarbonated. Good balance between sweetness and bitterness.

StefanSD (2387) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2016
Bottle. Black with a medium tan head that has good retention and ample sticky lacing. The aroma is big and bold, I can smell it clearly from several feet away. In the aroma I get sweet dark fruits and chocolate liqueur. The taste is not quite as big as the nose, i get cocoa, coffee, plums, hay, and pepper. The palate is full and velvety smooth. The finish is long and dry. Overall: Very nice.

Big light brown colored head with a dense brown body. Aromas of hops, mild dark chocolate, and lightly roasted malt. Nothing too special, just solid. Full, thick and lightly slick feel. Hints of tar in the finish. Very solid porter. 12/10

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.
