COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Henrik Imperial Amber is a heavily dry-hopped ale somewhere between an American Amber Ale and a Double IPA. Bucket loads of American hops were used to balance the malts in this powerful beer. Henrik Imperial Amber is brewed by Gahr Smith-Gahrsen and Kim Odland at Lervig Aktiebryggeri and was originally brewed at 8.1% and served on tap at Henrik Øl- og Vinstove, Bergen, exclusively.

Draught. Holy jesus. A hop uppercut! Beautiful amber color and a nice tan head. Loads of hops balanced with a smooth but dry malt profile. Dangerously easy drinker. Very nice!

Holmen1 (3409) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2015
Fra fat på Henrik’s (sammen med Børge): vakker, dyp ravfarge med flott skum som varer. Både aroma og smak er farlig fristende, og denne ble stående som kveldens beste ølopplevelse. På en solid maltbase var der gjort plass til kveldens mest komplekse smaksinntrykk med karamell, kvae, citrus, rosiner, fiken og ristet brød. Farlig god, før jeg hadde rukket å planlegge neste punkt på agendaen var glasset tomt.

mcberko (9220) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
On tap at Henrik Øl og Vinstove, pours a clear dark amber with a medium beige head. Nose brings out caramel malts and bready malts. Flavour is along the same lines, with caramel malts, resinous hops and bready malts. Robust and well-balanced. Exactly how you do a big imperial red. Excellent.

kustie (388) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Humalan tuoksu on melko voimakas. Erityisen pehmeä maku ja miellyttävä suutuntuma paistaa heti lävitse. Jälkimaussa on varsin paljon katkeruutta. Kuitenkin tasapainoinen maku, joka kehittyy mielenkiintoisesti alkumausta loppumakuun.

lusikka (7047) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2013
Draught @ Gastropub Nordic, Tampere. Pours a golden copper colour with a thick head. Aroma of sweet heavy toffee, grass, floral hops and hay. Flavour of heavy caramel malts, floral hops, grapefruit, grass and some berries. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a warming, sweet, lingering bitter finish. Alcohol warms nicely and gives a heavier body. Great.
