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!

My favorite beer of 2013. I had this a lot of times. An amazing beer of it’s kind, with a dry ashy finish that I love so much. I hope this beer will become really popular as it hits so many marks. The malt profile is amazing, alongside the copious amounts of hops and solid ABV. Love, love, love this beer!

Shared bottle @ Cardinal. There is really no question that Hoppin Frog had their fingers in this brew. They created another wonderful ale, full of dark chocolate, burnt wood and licorice. Great hop tones and bitterness. Pitch black and full body. I really enjoyed this ale!

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!!

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 2, 2012
from Erzbierschof - black beer with a persistent dark beige foam; strong aroma of mocha and walnuts; a fair hoppiness shows up with notes of red fruits; grainy notes; full-bodied, fairly bitter and very dry; some earthy tartness; very tasty and lively; very long nutty and coffeish finish with lingering hoppy and earthy notes - a great beer

RichardW (1448) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2013
50cl bottle, beers of Europe. Pours a thick oily jet black, with one of the darkest heads I’ve seen for a long time. Spicy pine hop aromas battle against a rich coffee and chocolate backbone, combining to produce a stunning imperial stout. The finish is long, lingering, full and very satisfying. A really big beer deserving of time being spent admiring and savouring it

badlizard (5539) - Berkeley, California, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle. Black with a creamy light brown head. Dark chocolate, caramel, amber incense, leather and light hops aroma. Thick silky palate. Tastes of burnt coffee, grain, dark chocolate, light citrus, leather, and a hint of smoke with a robust earthy finish. Quite good.

mcberko (5941) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2014
500mL bottle, pours jet black with a medium creamy brown head - looks decadent. Nose brings out wonderful notes of roasted malt and dry cocoa powder - smells like my kind of impie. Flavour is quite divine, bringing out pretty much the same roasted malt and dry cocoa powder notes. No residual sugar, with just a touch of hoppy bitterness on the finish. A full-bodied, decadent imperial stout like many others, but this is exceedingly well-crafted. Sublime stuff.

humlelala (948) - DENMARK - JUL 13, 2012
(50 cl bottle courtesy of Papsoe, thanks! BBD: June 2015; Batch 454) Pours black with three finger thick, brown head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is solidly roasted malt with just a hint of the wheat acidity and plenty of hops that smell herbal and slightly ’electrical smoke’-like as with the Mikkeller Hop Breakfast. The hops fade from the aroma eventually however leaving solid roasted and licorice notes. Creamy texture, soft carbonation, solid body and a dark and roasted bitter finish. Taste is dry and bitter with roasted notes. For me the wheat seems to contribute primarily in the early aroma but that doesn’t make the beer any worse of in my view.

On bottle at olbutikken in Copenhagen. Very good and mellow with an excellent body. One can notice both Hopping Frog and Amager ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
