Very dark brown, near black, and minimal head. Heavy rye on the nose along with roasted malts, Taste is roasty, almost smoky, with sweet nuttiness. Finish is bitter that in some way is balanced by the other bold flavors. Heavy body and lower than average carbonation.

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.

Enjoy!

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.

This is a strong, sweet, but also slightly nutty and extremely bitter. The beer is utterly black with a deep tan head. The aroma is boozy and charcoal...roasted, smokey and grainy. Warming and extremely full in body. However, it is jumbled and harsh.
