Dipping their toes into the English darker and more robust ales, Amager's imagination leads them to the footstep of chocolaty porter but with the strength of imperial stout. With the employment of rye grain, its going to take on an earthy charge.

Anything but delicate, the dark and hearty looking ale seems of dark-roast coffee until the nose towers over the glass. That's when the dark chocolate, kona coffee, walnut, vanilla, charred toast, cherry wood and kahlua liquor flood the olfactories and saturate the taste initially.

And that demeanor continues over the middle even as its malt-sweetness, peppercorn bite, husken grain, lightly toasted embers and woodish hops suggest an attempt to dry the palate. But with the rum-soaked cherry and merlot fruitiness and heavy whipping cream giving rise to the toasted taste, a bittersweet chocolate and coffee taste invites a warm and drying closure.

Bitterness grows but does does so with slightly acrid toast, peppercorn and a campfire type of oak taste but with little of the smoke, all the while retaining its seductive butterscotch and kahlua savory warmth.

On tap at the Avenue Pub, NOLA. Poured into a snifter

A: Dark brown, half finger tan head that settled fast. Frothy lacing.

S: Malts, chocolate and a healthy dose of rye.

T: Follows nose with a sweet, full bodied air of maltiness and rye punch. Chocolate comes in well. A solid sipper.

M: Medium to heavy with medium carbonation. Chewy.

O: A great porter from Amager. Glad I got to try it. I love the rye kick. recommended.

really good use of rye here, amager is fast becoming one of the kings of the dark malty beers, they have a knack for huge earthy bitter tones in a magnitude not often seen, as well as a penchant for robustness that fits well with american culture. this is a dark beer, similar in looks to a lot of their other stuff, impenetrable to light and holding onto over an inch of lace tan head. it smells like rye, truly spicy, almost black pepper notes, an intensity uncommon for rye, beyond the expected. the bitterness is intense from the roast, the flavor is long through the finish, not overly complex. not sure why this is a porter not a stout, i know the line is always blurry, always has been, but this is huge, huge beer. huge in body and flavor, the distinction between the two styles is lost on me here. the mouthfeel is great, rich and frothy, easy down and well hidden alcohol kick, but the belly feel, if such a thing exists, is not good for me. i love the texture of the beer, but i find it filling and a little disagreeable. i have found this with other amager beers too, without explanation. maybe their yeast? i just dont know, but dont let that detract you from buying, i think is some personal possibly allergic thing, i need to pinpoint it, but its only with amagers dark beers and nothing else. any thoughts on that from anyone with similar experiences? aside from a slightly uneasy belly, this beer is awesome. wonderful use of rye.

Purchased at the LCBO. Around $6.00 I think for a 500ml bottle. Served at 12deg C in a goblet.

A- Excellent! Opened well with a huge head for a porter. Dark, rich looking

S- WOW Excellent! Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, excellent!

T- See above!!

M- Super extra creamy and rich. Super malty and sweet

O- Fantastic. So glad I bought two!!

Looking forward to the other in a few years. I remember this one well. Will buy if I see again. Sat on this one for almost a year before opening.

Food Pairing

This wonderful porter paired well with extra cheese, mushrooms and pepperoni pizza on whole wheat.
