3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The notes of anise and licorice in the taste and aroma, that were more present when the beer was colder, are not very much to my liking. A little warmed up, I must say this is a terrificly well balanced and wonderfully complex brew. Coffee, chocolate, dried fruits, caramel and a lasting hoppiness make this beer very interesting. As I heard in a TV commercial, Audi cars were banned from some rallye car races due to "unfair advantages"; this beer, categorized as a simple stout, even with its 7% ABV, also has some disloyal advantages with its impressively rich and highly malty body... Audi makes great cars. Amager makes great beers, like this unboring stout.

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.

Bottle from Market of Choice, Eugene. Pours very dark. Aroma is sweet and boozy, lots of roastiness, chocolate. Mouthfeel is surprisingly lively, finish is slightly grassy, Centennial hops are saying hello. Very, very nice overall. Like a IPA had a baby with a barrel-aged stout. Yum!
