Aroma is dark fruit with coffee undertones. Very balanced flavor of dark fruit, chocolate, coffee and a hoppy backbone. Thanks Boutip!

Pours a deep dark murky motor oil colour, had to pour it from a foot or so up just to get some head on, which was a fizzy slightly off white to beige colour. The aroma sweet, big black licorice, old wood, drawer, smoke, spice, and more licorice. The flavour also sweet, big on licorice, bit of spice, chocolate, and dry roastiness that leads to a sort of woody note, and mouth feel. Solid, interesting and thoroughly enjoyable.

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Rich, silky dark pour with a finely bubbled brown head. Chocolate liqueur, spicy rye, and a healthy dose of smoke. Ends bitterly. Velvety smooth and full bodied. A pleasure.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours black with a fine tan head that leaves lacing. Aroma of raisin, rye bread crust, fruity yeast, dark malts, a bit of spice. Taste is sweet up front, medium - heavy mouthfeel, more dark bread, rye, spice and alcohol in the finish. Surprisingly hoppy too, balancing the big sweetness. Superb!

Amager Bryghus Rye Porter
Very dark opaque pour with a thick clingy tan head. Smells very muc like a porter. Malty smokey and caramel with chocolat. Mouth is very tart. It fades into a chocolaty smokyness. Just a touch warming and boozy.
TL/DR: great beer if you want to hear more follow +Big Dude Likes Food

Taster on tap at Neon’s. Very dark brown color. Near black, though not opaque. Minimal khaki head, couple ropes and bits of lace. A surprising amount of smoke to this, I really like that. Good big roast, light spiciness. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, with a light bite, very light sweetness. Drinks like it might be 9-10% (I was expecting around 7%). Bigger body, has a nice chewy texture to it. Lighter carbonation. Pretty dry finish, though that may just be my palate at the moment. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, minimal sweet, light alcohol bite to it. Light bit of belgian style spiciness, nice light spicy rye tingle. Pretty damn tasty european rye imperial porter, better than expected. Awesome chewy texture, good light coffee notes.

Ike it smells with a nice, rich mouthfeel. Good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a dark black color porter with a large light brown foamy head with good retention with some lacing. Aroma of rich black chocolate malt notes with light spicy notes. Taste is also dominated by rich chocolatey malt notes with light dry roasted malt notes and light peppery notes in the finish. Body is quite full with some creamy notes with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Light green hoppy notes are also detectable but very subtle. Enjoyable porter with nice level of drinkability but falling a bit short on the complexity side.
