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!

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

22oz bottle pours a fairly inky black with some foamy, lacing, brown head. Nose is interesting, roasted mushroom, malted milk balls, some pencil lead, some burnt root veg, black strap molasses, a little burnt matchstick. Flavor has some cherry cola, some pencil lead, heavy molasses, burnt caramel, lots of mushroom, a little lacto sugar. Lightly roasty, malty finish. Smooth.

> Bitter, dark chocolate powerful RIS but perhaps shelf damaged

[ Bottle ][ Holiday Wine Cellar ][ 50cl ][ ? ][ Pizza Boy Snifter ][ 4/14/14 ]
>> Ink pour with medium to low semi-rocky espresso foam. Red highlights. Nose is bitter dark chocolate wedge, Godiva liquor, chocolate mousse, red cedar, camphor, really rich. Taste is a tad lemon tart for me, but it is still fairly silky, low ash, and big on bitter melted dark chocolate. It is robust, dense, and never sweet or thin. Palate is chalky, dusty, medium bodied. Pretty good, but perhaps a bit shelf rotted.

>!< fairly dusty, mild lemon, woody tannic

A savory, dry and rich imperial stout with strong bitterness. Full-bodied beefy mouth feel delivered with soft, low carbonation. Peppery phenols and trace of alcohol burn in a bitter and dry finish. Angular and sharp.

Huhzubendah (2266) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 24, 2014
The beer is near black with a half inch of dense beige head. The aroma is more Danish than American, offering rich, roasted, dark malts and chocolates with a hint of smoke. A delicious beer. These two breweries both make great imperial stouts, so it’s no surprise that this collaboration turned out well. Smooth on the palate with soft carbonation. A delicious beer.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, dark brown, fully lasting. Body is black (opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately to heavily malty (roasted grain, coffee, dark chocolate), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, grapefruit), with notes of vanilla, charred wood, hint of blackberry. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, creamy/velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. A happy surprise, considering both Amager and Hoppin’ Frog are pretty hit-and-miss breweries. Both have produced some good strong porter/stouts, but both have produced some clumsy messes in that department too. I’m kinda surprised this is "only" 8%, considering both breweries like high-octane stuff, but it’s just about the perfect sweet spot for a beer of this kind. It’s not syrupy or overly sweet, nor is it overly hoppy or bitter. And perhaps the biggest shock of all, the hops are just floral and citrusy, no suggestion of raw resin to my nose at all. Lovely lasting head, first-pour opacity, and a luxurious mouthfeel (without being too viscous to enjoy the act of drinking it)...I wouldn’t say it’s quaffable, of course, but it certainly doesn’t suffer the usual boozy sugar-bomb mistakes of so many of its brethren. This is just a solid, no-frills strong stout, but done well (and frankly there’s not enough examples in this vein...Green Flash Double Stout comes to mind). Enticing, balanced, rich and tasty...major kudos to both breweries for not making yet another 12-15% kitchen sink (bourbon barrel, 10-malt, 10-hop, chocolate nibs, vanilla beans, etc., etc.) atrocity. It’s ultimately too pricey at $9/500mL, but hey, at least it’s really good, so I won’t grumble too much.

500 ml bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a murky brown color with medium sized bubbly tan head. The aroma and flavor have big roasted malts, dark chocolate, rye, earth, some mild sweetness, creamy. Medium-bodied, dry mouth feel.

Bomber. Pours clear dark brown with a spotty tan cap. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, dwarf fruit, coffee, molasses, medicinal qualities. Taste is sweet and bitter. Medium-light carbonation, short dry finish. A bit thin.

Botella de 650ml - gentileza de Humlelala. Copa de Vino. Brota con negro intenso y capa de espuma marrón claro, color café con leche. La corona muy tupida, amplia, cremosa, firme y persistente deja copos de algodón en las paredes. Un sorprendente perfil aromático que despliega maltas caramelo, tostadas y torrefactas, con trazos de chocolate fundido, herbales y de toffees, con matices quemados y de humo; notas de plátano maduro afloras según alcanza mayor temperatura. Una entrada dulce y chocolateada que queda desplazada por un ascendente amargor herbal. Cuerpo pleno y carbonatación suave. Soberbio paladar de textura sedosa y viscosa a la vez. Los sabores de malta cremosa, leve cítrico y cacao negro, redondeados por un toque de madera, desembocan en un prolongado final amargo. El ABV, increíblemente bien integrado, se percibe como un gentil calorcillo en la garganta. El retrogusto reseco y presenta contundente amargo de resinas y notas quemadas junto a frutos secos. Para disfrutar de un trago pausado y lento que permita saborear cada sorbo de esta sabrosa y compleja elaboración. Sin duda, una de las mejores que nunca haya bebido; todavía estoy impresionado !! 650ml bottle - Thanks to Humlelala. Wine glass. Pours pure black in color headed by light brown - toffee like- foam. Crown is very close, thick, creamy, sticky & lasting. Rocky spots are left on sides. Amazing aroma profile displays caramel, toasted & roasted malt aromas, fudge chocolate, toffee & herbal hues, hints of smoke & burnt notes, as well as ripe banana on the back when warm. Chocolated sweet upfront but arising herbal bitterness moves it out. Full body. Soft carbonation. Superb mouthfeel is silky while viscous in texture. Creamy malt, slight citric & bitter cocoa flavors rounded by subtle woody touch resolves in a long bitter finish. Incredibly well integrated ABV is felt as a gentle heat through the throat. Dried aftertaste shows dried nut & sharp bitterness made of resinous & burnt notes. For a long & paused drink where every flavorful & complex sip is enjoyed. No doubt, this is one of the best I´ve ever had. I´m still shocked!!
