Bottle from the local taphouse shop. Exceptional, nice spicy notes. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, vanilla, notes of liquorice, chilli. Taste is sweet and bitter, with very long length. Palate is creamy, spicey, and full bodied. Black, with a frothy head. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Trump! This brew is very special indeed. From the rich aromatics of chocolate to the density of body which lays across my tongue like melted cocoa with perfectly creamy carbonation. This brew is incredible. I would’nt say the rye portion was noticeable in an obvious way but I’m sure without it the balance on this very chocolate malt forward brew would not exist. The finish lingers forever. Despite this brew richness it is very drinkable. Do yourself a favor and try this sometime. You won’t regret it.

De color siena tostada y burbuja fina con persistencia alta se presenta Rugporter de Amager... con aromas a fresas y cerezas... arándanos y moras... frutas tropicales con hueso como mango y papaya... con toques a malibú con piña y un final curioso a chicle bang bang de fresa... en la boca café y regaliz... y un amargor que recuerda a los tallos de las acelgas cocidas... muy agradable en conjunto.

Simply amazing. Deep cocoa and sweet chocolate, fresh cereals and black bread aromas. Perfect bittersweet taste, with hints of coffee, cream and toffee in the back. Impressive, probably the best imperial porter I’ve ever tasted. thebusstop (178) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Wow! This was one powerful brew. I enjoyed it on cask at Tap and Mallet. Definitely the smoothest beer I’ve ever had. It’s a bit like chewing on a coffee bean, though. The nose and flavor is like drinking straight espresso in beer form, but darker and more bitter. There was some dark chocolate in the bouquet as well. It exhausts the palate quickly, that’s for sure. Beware, it’s pretty strong and packs quite a punch.

Nearly black pour with a light brown head. Aroma is unreal. Molasses, prunes, dark raisins, toffee, coffee, chocolate and booze. Flavor is sweet and boozy. Chocolate, molasses, prunes, italian roast coffee and vanilla. Awesome shit. Linnet (1813) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2013
Ar: vanilla, firm but soft coffee, dark and milk chocolate, roastiness, alcohol, soft, refined and lovely cloaked in a soft spiciness.
Ap: black colour, medium Brown head, ridiculousy creamy, lacing.
F: spicy, roastiness, burnt and black malts, soft licorice, again extremely refined and sophisticated.
P: just lovely!
T: this is not in your face fantastic, it is refined, subtle but still, just as impressing! JefVerstraete (3307) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2013
Dark brown/black colour. Medium carbonation. Very rich taste. Aroma of hops, burned malt, coffee. Very well balanced. Long intense aftertaste. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Black with big, foamy, coffee head, fine lacing / Deep, intense nose of dark fruit, coffee, molasses, coconut / Full body, chewy, inky, sweet but with excellent balance, smooth and creamy, with long finish and a hint of bitterness / Flavors of plum, prune, dark roast coffee, fruit bread, cream, grass, lemon, caramel, rye / A real beauty. The difference between this sort of porter and an imperial stout escape me. hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 15, 2010
batch 199 mindst 3/13...another treat dished out by dakine on 5/31/10. muchas gracias, amigo.
thick opaque pour is orange-brown tinted black with a tan head. lots of spotty lacing remains.
it smells ashy... but really soft/mellow smoky mixed with some vinous sour raisins, vanilla, wood (mmm... woody porter!), toasted nuts, dark chocolate, molasses and florals.
holy crap, this is good stuff!... flavors of molasses, roast, coffee, vanilla, smoked malt, earthy yeast, florals, wood, rubber, chocolate and some prunes.
creamy, crisp, smooth and yummy. 9/4/9/5/18/4.5
