Sampler at CBF 2011-05-27. Black with a light brown, creamy head leaving excellent lacing. Wooden, roasted, milky and burnt aromas, liqorice prominent. Full bodied and flavors of liqorice, light alcohol and acidity. Dry long roanted finish. Cybercat (5832) - Georgia, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Pours a dark-chocolate brown with a thick and rather persistent light tan head. Aroma is strong and smoky and has an odd but not repulsive waxy component. Taste fills the mouth with malty and smoky flavors and a decidedly rye undertone, as well as a hoppy hint. Texture is restless and fizzy, not at all smooth, a bit thick and oily. Whether it’s Rye Porter or Rugporter, it’s worth seeking.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2012 Rerate, 500 ml bottle, batch #461, will soon be available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8.5%. Black colour, moderate tan head. The dryish aroma has notes of cold strong coffee and roasted malts, hints of woodwork and unsweetened liquorice. The flavour has initially some sweetness, but ends dry and very roasty, with a solid hoppy bitterness to boot. Notes of strong coffee again, hints of unsweetened liquorice and dark bitter chocolate. I’m upping it one point. Original rating: At Copenhagen Beer Festival. Black colour. Moderate roasty (coffee) notes in both aroma and flavour, hints of rye bread. Drinkable, absolutely nothing wrong with it, but as this is Amager, I expected something even better. BTW, we brewed a homebrew porter last year with exactly the same ratio of rye malts in it, and thought it was better than this. Did not taste them side by side, though - and we might have been slightly biased, or slightly drunk ... madmitch76 (24806) - , Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2011

Copenhagen Beer Festival. Opaque black stout. Thick creamy tan head. Interesting stout, soft and silky but has that distinctive rye spiceyness. Smooth and tasty.
