Danish: En dag i maj 2012 fik Amager Bryghus besøg av en af USAs mest karismatiske bryggere, Fred Karm fra bryggeriet Hoppin’ Frog i Akron, Ohio. Fred var på rundrejse i Europa og lagde vejen forbi for at gæstebrygge hos os. Og resultatet av denne hyggelige og givende dag i godt amerikansk selskab, finder du i denne flaske. "Frog Hops To Amager" er en lidt sjælden type, nemlig en Imperial Wheat Stout, brygget på hele 8 forskjellige malte, hvoraf de to er af hvedetypen. Og så ville det jo ikke være os,, hvis ikke den var humlet kraftigt, så vi har givet øllet en solid omgang Tomahawk og Chinook. du vil finde en kraftig og humlearomatisk øl, som måske er lidt blødere og knap så tung som andre Imperial Stouts. Håber du må nyde resultatet af dette transatlantiske samarbejde!

Murky deep brown body with a small brown head. This doesn’t look that good, but I guess it’s my own fault: the sample I’m rating is the leftovers from a lukewarm bottle with lots of yeasty sediments. The aroma is strong with roasted notes of coffee, hops and yeast. The taste is moderate sweet and heavy bitter. Strong flavour of coffee and citrus, a good malt/hop balance. Also too much dirty yeast, but again, that’s my fault. Oily texture, full body, very soft carbonation and a yeasty dry finish (the latter I assume is... wait for it... my fault). This is probably a very good beer, and I’m hereby ashamed of myself for rating this based on a small, warm, yeasty sample.
[Sample from 75 cl bottle @ Kaaz’ Ølsmaking på takterrassen]

There’s something about the Danish water that makes me constantly have problems with their dark beers. Sour, stone heavy and slightly gooey mess that is only lifted by a slightly salty licorice flavor.

Pours a pitch black beer with a nice brown head. Smells and tastes coffee, chocolate and cookie dough with a good bitter finish. Average carbo, medium body and a sticky texture. I like!

StoutHead (605) - DENMARK - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours pitch black with a medium sized light-brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, licorice and hops. Taste is of hard roasted malt, coffee, licorice, muscovado sugar, vanilla and hops. Full bodied and average carbonation. It’s bitter and dry, with wheat coming in in the aftertaste - quite atypical for an Imperial Stout imho, but even with the amount of hops in there I found it better than expected. Good.

Bottle. Pours black with a dark brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa beans, sweet liquorice, dark chocolate, vanilla, weak hoppy background and some bready notes. Taste of liquorice, roasted coffee, roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate, some bitter hops, bready notes and cocoa leading to a savory end. Very nice and different imperial stout! I actually really like this! Hops and wheat suit this beer!
