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.

Tabbe (13) - - JAN 15, 2013
Nice amber color, with a nice tan head. Lots of citrus hops, and a faint caramel taste. The high alcohol (8,5%) is well hidden in this badboy, so be careful - it’s hard to only have one

Back log. Pours dark amber, with a creamy head. Loads of resiny hop notes on the notes. Citrus, caramel and burnt bread. Very smooth and a easy drinker even with the high ABV.

This is a SERIOUS solid beer. This beer has the great roasty maltiness one would expect with an amber, with some of the wonderful hop bit of a hoppier style (IPA). If you’re ever in Bergen, you really need to get this beer.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2015
On tap at Henrik, Bergen. A hazy amber to brown colored beer with a dense, finger-thick beige head leaving some lacing. Roasted malts, caramel, pine cones and resins in the aroma. Some bread too. Toast, bread hints, roasted malts, pine cones and resin in the flavor, with a nice bitterness. It’s full-bodied, lightly warming and pleasantly carbonated, with a lasting finish. Sure a nice one. 151005

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 (4805) - 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 (14356) - 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 (878) - 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.

Deep clear amber color, good white head. Sweet fruity aroma, light hoppyness. Medium-bodied. Sweet fruityness, finish has strong bitterness and alcohol. Quite heavy stuff.
