Danish: Det siges, at bag hver en barsk, brysk og brutal mand står en kysk, kærlig og ikke mindst klog kone. Sådan er det selvfølgelig også i øllets verden. For hvor vores måske kendteste øl, Hr. Frederiksen, er en kraftkarl, som nyder at stå og beundre egne muskler, så er Fru Frederiksen nemlig en klog kone, der udmærket ved, at man faktisk godt kan nå næsten lige så langt, ved at spare lidt på kræfterne. Fruen er dog ikke just nogen letøl, men den er alligevel tonet noget ned i forhold til Herren. Lidt sødere og knapt så brændt om end den med rigelige mængder sortmalt, chokolademalt og ristet byg ikke ligefrem er nogen helt bette tøs. Og den amerikanske Centennial humle sparker lige bagud i skridtet med sine 60+ IBU, hvis du skulle finde på at pille uden at spørge om lov. Hils på Fruen – hun er kommet for at blive.

English: It is said that behind every great man is an equally great - and above all - wise woman.
Now this can also be said of the beer world. Perhaps our most famous beer, Hr. (Mr.) Frederiksen is a powerful dude, who enjoys nothing more than to stand and admire his own muscles. Fru (Mrs.) Frederiksen however is a wise woman who knows perfectly well that it is possible to achieve almost as much without using anywhere near as much force.
This Lady is just as powerful but is somewhat toned down compared to the Lord. Slightly sweeter and less smokey although with plenty of black malt, chocolate malt and roasted barley she is no complete sissy - the US Centennial hops with its 60+ IBUs reminds you of this fact.
Bid the mistress welcome - she is here to stay.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, wheat malt, oats, hops and yeast

Travlr (21675) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2010
Bottle at Churchkey. Silky black with a sexy beige head. Delicate lacing, and nice legs! Scent of licorice, smoked espresso, nutmeg, and chastity. She is a bit drier than her husband, more subtle, slightly sweet, with flavors of prunes and grapes, but a spicy edge of black pepper. Very attractive.

Koelschtrinker (17730) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Aromatischer Malzgeruch. Malziger Antrunk mit leichter Schokoladennote, mitt-intensiv, für ein Imperial Stout mild wirkend. Dennoch vollmundig, die leichten Hopfennoten erfrischen. Im Abgang erheblich würziger, die Malzigkeit wird cremiger. Mittellanger Nachgeschmack. Endlich mal kein Imperial Sotut nach dem Prinzip „stärker=besser“! Guter Einsatz des Röstmalzes. 12/11/11/12//11

yngwie (16524) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2011 Bottle, thx to the brewer, Storm. Pours a beautiful black body under a finger-thick tan head. Chocolate and coffee in the aroma, as well as dusty, piney hops. Chocolate, coffee, molasses notes and a fine hop profile with piney hops giving a fine bitterness. Full-bodied. The lasting finish has both hoppy and coffee-like bitterness. As usual, Amager has made a beauty. Rating: 7-5-8-4-15-3.9. 081031

Bottle, shared by Meilby. A dark brown to black body is topped by a finger-thick, tan head. There’s lots of hops in the aroma, citrus and pine cones, but even more roasted malts giving chocolate and coffee. A good dash of chocolate in the flavor, coffee, licorice and a nice hoppy bitterness too. Full-bodied and smooth. Lasting finish with alcohol, coffee and hoppy bitterness. Definitely a lady I could dance with all night. 110114
