Bottle: Poured a dark black color porter with a large light brown foamy head with good retention with some lacing. Aroma of rich black chocolate malt notes with light spicy notes. Taste is also dominated by rich chocolatey malt notes with light dry roasted malt notes and light peppery notes in the finish. Body is quite full with some creamy notes with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Light green hoppy notes are also detectable but very subtle. Enjoyable porter with nice level of drinkability but falling a bit short on the complexity side.

500 ml bottle purchased from LCBO. Served cool.

Appearance - Very dark brown in color and opaque,3 fingers of dark tan head poured and is foaming and frothy. Head lasts for a few minutes leaving spidery lacing all over the glass. Glorious.

Smell - Light coffee aroma with some grainy rye scents. Also a floral component in there. Nice blend of smells that is welcoming.

Taste - Coffee up front, transitioning to a rye grainy bitterness with some mild hop presence. A roasted quality in here as well and a slight bit of heat in the back of the throat presumably from the rye. There is also the faintest trace of smokiness in this liquid adventure.

Mouthfeel - Slick and smooth. Low carbonation levels but still slides down the throats without a second thought. Full flavored and a moderate finish.

Overall - Excellent beer that i look forward to purchasing again when the need for a rye porter strikes me. Highly recommended.

Pours an oily dark burgundy colour, nearly black in the glass with a thin but dense chocolate coloured head. An impressive amount of lacing for such a limited amount! Creamy and fulsome mouthfeel is befitting the high ABV. Rye and roasted grains are the focus of the aroma, with coffee and dark chocolate tones as well as a real smokiness that's more apparent as it warms. These elements combine nicely in the taste, from an initial chocolaty sweetness to a decent bitterness in the finish. The rye and roasted dark malts give the body a nice depth. And the alcohol burn in the finish is scarily well hidden by the bittering hops. I had hoped this would be a "sipping beer", but it is going down far more quickly than I'd planned...

Poured this 1 pt .9 oz bottle into a Sierra Nevada hops glass. No date. The body was a deep brown and the creamy head was medium tan.

The smell was smokey. Fruit and grain. Not the strongest.

The taste was also faintly smokey. This one puts me in mind of a chocolatey granola bar. Spicy and rich. There is almost an oily texture (in a pleasant way). Very drinkable.

The mouthfeel was medium to full with an understated carbonation. Very smooth and rich.

500 mL bottle picked up at the LCBO; best before June 2016. While I've had plenty of macro crap from Denmark over the years, I think this is the first true Danish craft beer I've had the pleasure of trying. Served slightly chilled, and poured into a mug.

Pours black as night, topped with two fingers of frothy, bubbly, extremely resilient beige-coloured head. It seeps away in an excruciatingly slow fashion, coating the glass with a honeycomb pattern of lacing as it does so. This is one of the finest-looking beers I've had in weeks. Nice aroma, too - a tempting blend of roasted malts, rye, dark cherries and chocolate, with lesser notes of coffee, licorice, alcohol and smoke. Alright, I gotta taste this stuff.

This is a delicious porter. Roasted malts, molasses and rye bread get things started, with a big wave of dark chocolate and espresso flavour. This is followed by hints of dark cherry, raspberry syrup and char, with a nice, long roasted malt and dark chocolate finish that has a touch of spicy rye. The alcohol content is noticeable, but works nicely alongside the prolonged aftertaste and roasty flavour profile. Full-bodied, with low carbonation for a luxurious, creamy mouthfeel that coats the palate with each sip; a little sticky on the lips.

Final Grade: 4.2, an A-. Amager Rye Porter is an outstanding winter sipper that I encourage all readers to seek out and try. The flavours are bold and fairly complex, with just the right amount of warmth from the alcohol to make this an ideal night capper for the cooler months. Great stuff - too bad this one isn't available locally (and I only opted to take one bottle), as this is the sort of strong porter that I could make a habit of indulging in frequently.
