COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Tilbage i maj 2010 havde vi her på Amager Bryghus besøg af en mand, som ved første øjekast kunne ligne Frank Zappas barnebarn - eller måske en ukendt lillebror til Snoop Dogg. Men navnet var dog ikke hverken Zappa eller Snoop men derimod Laffler, Mr. John Laffler fra Chicago, Illinois. John er til daglig brygger på byens førende bryggeri Goose Island, og kontakten til ham opstod, da vi tidligere på året deltog i World Beer Cup i netop Chicago. Dengang spurgte vi John, om ikke han havde lyst til at brygge øl på Amager, som jo sådan lidt er Danmarks svar på Chicago – oh well, næsten… John fik helt frie hænder og kom op med noget så sjældent som en letrøget Rugstout – derved var Amager RyeKing født.
I glasset står Amager RyeKing sort som beg med et lysebrunt skum. Hele 22% af malten stammer fra rug, og vi vil godt garantere, at det kan smages. RyeKing har en fantastisk robusthed uden nogensinde at være tung, mens røgen aldrig bliver overdøvende, men i stedet tilføjer et lille pikant strejf. Bitterheden er tør og kontant og kommer fra både de ristede malte og fra Northern Brewer humlen. Vi er ret godt tilfredse med dette transatlantiske samarbejde, og er ikke et sekund i tvivl om, at du vil være ligeså, når du har smagt Amager RyeKing!
Brygget af: 8 malte, havregryn, 2 humler, amerikansk overgær og det gode Amar-vand.

Tsekouratos (481) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - APR 13, 2015
500 ml bottle from The Hoppy Imports, Thessaloniki Greece. Black body with dark brown head. Aroma is really strange. Spiciness from the rye, something like peppers, coffee, chocolate, some hoppiness. Taste is similar, and quite strange and balanced. Coffee and chocolate of course, with spicy rye notes, roasted, some hops there as well. maybe some beechwood, some oak. Medium to full body with medium carbonation. Great!!!!!

Strykzone (5534) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2015
Bomber. Black with a big tan head that seems to have an amber tint, too. A cool looking beer. A robust and roasty aroma also seems to have that regional aroma. Some chocolate and ash in there, too. The flavor is also robust. Dark bitter chocolate leads. Floral notes and ash. Interesting. Then spicy hops. The beer settles into a rich chocolate and rye stout but continues to evolve. Soft fruit pops up followed by grapefruit bitterness. Very good. The feel is creamy smooth. An awesome beer.
