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

asheft (2990) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2008
[on tap at EBF 2008] Vanilla aroma with some pleasant sweet, roastiness and definite hops (British?). Reddish-opaque black with nice light brown ring and dots. Very good, dry roasty flavour with a nice bitter bite and some hops bitterness. Mostly roast but still a little sweet malt. Perceptible hops flavour. Dry finish, clean, moderate carbonation, does not seem like 7%.

Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2008
Bottle. Huge dense work creamy brown head that really lasted. Excellent display of lacework. Pitch black bubbly color. Lovely and strong notes of roasted malt, coffee, liquorish. Also sweet chocolate and a hint of berries. Over the palate came a solid base of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Also some underlying floral – hoppy notes. Medium to full bodied with an average carbonation and somewhat dry and at the same time thick texture. Moderated sweet and bitter flavor in balance. Tasty liquorish and roasted malty finish with a touch of sweet chocolate.

MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2010
(bottle) Coal-black coloured hue with a brown medium-sized foamy head. Sweet and rich roasty malty aroma with notes of dark and milky chocolate, combined with fruity notes of dried berries, noble hops, as well as leather and liquorice-spice. Roasty bitter flavour with a present and well-rounded malty sweetness, full bodied with a very smooth carbonation. Balanced roast-malty and subtle fruity taste with notes of chocolate, burnt caramel, leather and liquorice; dry-ish and intensively roasty and hop bitter finish with light vinous notes and almost the ultimate length. Great. 22.VI.10

Abio (1859) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JUN 23, 2010
Bottle at home, shared with Erwin. Pours out very dark brown, looks like pitch black at the glass. Very little, to little, head, that won’t hold neither it seems. A bit sad. Very good aroma of coffe, lightly chococlate and red fruits inside. Like this one for sure allready. Roasted, very good nespresso- chocolate taste, pretty well balanced biterness and roastiness. Don’t ask me why, but I likt this one more then the HR. Frederiksen, wich is pretty good also. But I think this one, for me, seems more balanced at tastes, only a bit sad the head costs some points. Gonna buy more if I can.

From Butters @ 12th Richmond Gathering: Charcoal aroma with black chocolate hints. Clear, dark mahogany, tan medium head, good lacing. Tobacco and black chocolate flavor. A wisp of smoke in the finish. Full body, well rounded, good mouthfeel. Delicious. No wonder the Danes pwn this site!
