COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

English: One day in May 2012, Amager Bryghus had a visit from one of America’s most charismatic brewers: Fred Karm from Hoppin’ Frog in Akron, Ohio. Fred was on tour in Europe and came by to guest brew with us. The result of this pleasant and rewarding day was Frog Hops to Amager. Frog Hops to Amager is a somewhat rare type, namely an Imperial Wheat Stout, brewed with eight different malts, two of which are wheat. And then it would not do for us if it was not hopped strongly so we gave the beer a solid game of Tomahawk and Chinook. You will find an intense and aromatic hopping beer, which is perhaps a little softer and not so heavy as other Imperial Stouts. Hope you can enjoy the results of this transatlantic cooperation!

Chocolate and biitterr aroma. Some sourness. Taste chocolate and coffee. Bitter but somewhat watery in the aftertaste. Missing some sweetness.

A bit too much Amager, not enough Hoppin’ Frog. A mix between the hop and the malt makes me wonder if it’s a Black IPA, Stout or Imperial stout I’m drinking. Aroma is nice with lot of complexity but falls short on taste/finish.

polo_marco (313) - milton, Vermont, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Smells of roasted malts with a slight winey boozy scent at the end. Super rich black color with no head. Really nice smooth roasted malts flavor with slight wine taste with wood like dry finish. Full body with exreamly light carbonation. Love the feel of the beer but not a fan of that winey taste not my thing. But still not a bad brew.

wombat23 (607) - Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2016
Shared 16.9 oz. bottle. Pours brown-black with a dark tan head. Nose is roasted malt, chocolate, and licorice with coffee notes. Flavor is similar to the nose and quite rich. There is a good amount of hops bitterness, but it doesn’t clash with roasted/chocolate/coffee flavors and adds a nice extra dimension. Medium-bodied. Could probably be classified as a stout. Excellent.

darbeer75 (435) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2016
Aroma: chocolatey and rich; Appearance: pitch black with tan head that dissipates quickly; Taste: also very rich and chocolatey with underlying bitterness and hops; extremely complex and delicious; Palate: heavy body with long, simultaneously sweet and bitter finish; Overall: possibly my favorite imperial stout yet, though perhaps just a teench too sweet; would definitely buy again.

anstei (1051) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle at Erzbierschof Zurich. Probably the most chocolate-y impstout I ever had, from start to finish having this very dark bitter cocoa aroma. Some sweetness on the tongue, but not on the palate. Lingering lasting finish, but not a sweet one either. Wow.

Theydon_Bois (16649) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle split at Amager Brewery mini tasting, RBESG ’15 day 3, thanks to Papsoe, 22/08/15. Pitch black with a decent dirty tan covering that retains well. Nose is rich roast, dark malts, spice, chocolate, hint of fruit. Taste comprises chocolate, malt, toffee fudge, roast malt. Medium + body, fine carbonation, dry roasty tones in the close. Decent enough impy.

TEJA (2368) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle from systembolaget sweden. Big and lasting brown head. Big chocolate aroma and taste. Big bitterness and a litle bit hard. Not as good as the original Frog but still very good.

AWISLguy (2458) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2015
500ml bomber from Liquor Max in Loveland. Black pour with a brown head leaving a lot of lace. Aroma has baker’s chocolate, caramel, and some light grain. Taste is of bittersweet chocolate, caramel, light molasses and a bit of espresso. Fairly smooth although not ideally so. Medium to full bodied with little alcohol presence. Finishes chocolatey bitter trumping the sweet side of bittersweet. Solid if not everything it could be. 14.3
