4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
0,5 l bottle, bought at PreZBF Festival, Belgium.
Poured black with a fantastic foamy, beige head with small bubbles. Deep roasted aroma with a ton of dried fruits, fine espresso-like coffee and molasses, caramel, dark chcolates and a lurking hop perfume. Medium bodied stout witha well rounded, smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is full of coffee, roasted grains, dark chocolates and tobacco, some sweet molasses, nice hops in the finish. Roasted coffe-like, dry aftertaste. Very pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark brown with a small beige head. Some lacings.
The smell is of chocolate, smooth roasted malts and piny and peppery hops. Hints of coffee as well, and perhaps a faint smoky note.
The taste has some sweetness to it with notes f roasted malts, chocolate and wood. And again, I get a faint note of smoke. Lots of piny hops. The finish is bitter, but a bit bland aroma-wise with notes of coffee, hops and chocolate.
Rather light body, smooth and easy to drink.
Not as in-your-face as Herr Frederiksen and the brewery’s regular imperial stout, but there’s something about the hop profile in Amager’s beers that I don’t really like - it’s too raw, piny and unidimensional.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a black liquid with a rather large, beige head. Aroma is very roasted. Taste is rather hoppy with heavily roasted notes and a hint of old cucumber. A bit thin body, and a bit one-sided beer. Not bad, though.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a creamy froth of well-lacing dark beige head. Aroma of rich dark caramel, chocolate and roasty coffee with some dark fruity complexity. Starts with good dark malty fullness with some smoky roasted dark chocolate and caramel before a drier, earthy bittersweet finish with lingering dark chocolate. A very nice stout.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black colour, tan head some lacing. Aroma is extremely roasted and full of chocolate and coffee. Flavour is the same with a nice bitterness to it. Unfortunately the body is a bit thin and it is very flat as well. This is so much the case that it influences the whole experience of the beer. With a better mouthfeel I would have loved it, now I don’t.
