Danish: Tilbage i maj 2010 havde vi her p Amager Bryghus besg af en mand, som ved frste jekast kunne ligne Frank Zappas barnebarn - eller mske 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 p byens frende bryggeri Goose Island, og kontakten til ham opstod, da vi tidligere p ret deltog i World Beer Cup i netop Chicago. Dengang spurgte vi John, om ikke han havde lyst til at brygge l p Amager, som jo sdan lidt er Danmarks svar p Chicago oh well, nsten John fik helt frie hnder og kom op med noget s sjldent som en letrget Rugstout derved var Amager RyeKing fdt.
I glasset str 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 vre tung, mens rgen aldrig bliver overdvende, men i stedet tilfjer et lille pikant strejf. Bitterheden er tr og kontant og kommer fra bde 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 vre liges, nr du har smagt Amager RyeKing!
Brygget af: 8 malte, havregryn, 2 humler, amerikansk overgr og det gode Amar-vand.

martjoobolut (4084) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 5, 2017
Bottle, batch 1465 (from UJH). Pours dark brown-black with brown head. The head stays. Aroma is rye, spices, dark chocolate, roast, malt, metallic notes, iron. Flavor is sweet and bitter, very burnt roast, malt, coffee, chocolatemetallic notes. Finish is burnt, metallic and booze. Overall: drinkable beer. This is from the more is better school (rye is the best part of this!), but Im not really enjoying this, too burnt for me.

neongolden (1527) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2017
(500ml bottle from kihoskh.dk, BB 11/2019) Pours pitch black with a huge, dense mocha-coloured head that fades slowly leaving a truly beautiful wall of lace. Aroma of heavily roasted, smoky malts with ash and iodine, dark bitter chocolate, cocoa powder, light coffee, dark rye bread, light hoppy notes. Flavour is semi-sweet dark malt and brown sugar, semi-sweet chocolate, quite heavy roasted malt, a little ash and smoke on the back end, black coffee, vanilla accents, a touch of liquorice, spicy rye building into the finish that has fairly hefty hop bitterness, pine resin and slight citrus, and quite a lot of bitter roast as well. Lingering chocolate notes. Quite full and thick body with creamy carb. This is a tour de force for a <8% stout, huge flavours and mouthfeel, heavily bitter but still pretty balanced. That being said, as it warms, the bitterness can become a bit overwhelming, almost like a big black IPA on the back end.

klm1 (1464) - Bled/SF, - DEC 29, 2016
Pours black oily color, haze/opaque, with creamy light brown head. Aroma: intense malts aroma, with notes of espresso coffee, dark cacao coffee, cacao nibs, hint of peat, roasted, hint of molasses & licorice, some rye spicy notes, citrusy, piny notes of hops.... Flavor: medium roasted grain & malts flavor, which takes on espresso coffee, dark chocolate, cacao, lighty burnt - peated, supported with gentle dark fruits esters, slightly spicy note of rye, moderate hop flavor with notes of citruses and pine...but hop bitterness is high. Finish is dry. Body is full, almost very full (plato 22!!!?), texture smooth almost creamy, carbonation is medium. What a surprise!

waggerlager (14) - - DEC 23, 2016
Not bad, but not deserving of the hype. After a few, hop profile becomes overbearing. I guess thats what you get at this bitterness level.

mortsbrews (10) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2016
Towering dark pour, frothy head. Profound malt notes, reasonably sessionable for 80 IBUs. Colour is robust and taste profile clean.

suurjuust (3504) - ESTONIA - DEC 23, 2016
500ml bottle. Dark brown beer, medium brown head. Nose is hops and cocoa dust, woody notes. Flavor is roast, dark chocolate, a hint of coffee. Hoppy bitterness and mild rye acidity in the finish, chocolate notes, woody dryness. Aftertaste has milder, but still pretty bitter, hops, chocolate and rye. Smooth mouthfeel, hides the ABV well.

Hoprider (614) - DENMARK - DEC 9, 2016
Creamy black pour with a crema like head. The nose is seriously roasted with smokey meat and coffee. The taste is medium full with pretty big coffee and raw licorice, a little sweetness from the rye and substantial bitterness too - not overly complex. The mouthfeel is medium rich and nice and oily. Drying finish and aftertaste, developing into bitterness.

mariuspoenari (2555) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2016
50cl bottle. Pitch black pour with a tall espresso head with decent retention. Notes of roasted malts, dark chocolate, licorice, more roasted malts and some smoke. Full body, thick and oily, medium to low carbonation and a roasty bitter finish. An excellent Russian imperial stout.
