Danish: Amager Bryghus har fra branchekyndige erfaret, at storytelling er halvdelen af fornøjelsen ved at drikke dyrt øl. Så vi bad en velestimeret lokalhistoriker forske i bryghusets beliggenhed. Derfor var vores begejstring stor, da den følgende historiske sandhed blev afsløret: Amager Bryghus ligger ved et vandingssted på den traditionelle skralderute henover Amager. Siden oldtiden har vore forfædre slukket deres tørst lige her, når de svedigt har transporteret deres skidt til øens berømte lossepladser. På samme måde er det historiske Buffalo Trace bourbon destilleri i Frankfort, Kentucky gennem 200 år beliggende ved et vadested hvor store flokke indfødte bøfler har krydset den brusende Kentucky River i vild flugt fra hujende rødhuder. Således knyttes historien så smukt sammen – fra Amager til Kentucky. Vi håber du vil nyde, hvordan vi med denne særudgave af Hr. Frederiksen knytter fremragende og stærkt sort øl sammen med noget af den bedste Bourbon, der findes.

English: People with great knowledge of the craft beer business told us that storytelling is half the pleasure of drinking expensive beer. So we asked a local historian to dig into the location of Amager Bryghus. And to say the least, we were thrilled to discover that our brewhouse is located next to an old water hole on the historic trash trail across Amager. Since ancient time our ancestors have quenched their thirst right here while transporting their rubbish to the famous trash pits of Amager. Likewise is the Buffalo Trace Destillery in Frankfort, Kentucky located on what was once an ancient buffalo crossing on the banks of the Kentucky River. Thus history blends together beautifully – from Amager to Kentucky. We hope you’ll enjoy how we in this special edition of Hr. Frederiksen blends strong black beer with some of the best quality Bourbon ever made.

(50 cl bottle from the brewery; Batch #355 BBD: January 2018) Pours black with tan, quickly receding head. Decent regeneration. Aroma is wet oak and bourbon with some booze upfront that fades leaving notes of fruits like prune and plum. Soft carbonation, full body, oily texture and a leathery finish. Taste follows the flavour with some added caramel. Girlfriend says: "it’s less tasty than the Pride."

Bottled from Systembolaget. A few years old. Black with a small, bubbly, beige head. Mostly dark chocolate and sweet liquorice in the aroma. Vinous flavour with milky chocolate and cold coffee.

Unm4rk3d (86) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2015
Big bourbon taste throughout the beer. Would have liked this to be a bit more creamy, which would have help the overall feel of such a big beer.

Shark_Pants (534) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2015
Pours impenetrable black with moderate mocha head. Sweet aromas of bourbon, molasses, port wine, coffee, leather and booze. Massive port wine upfront in the taste, then come the additional layers of dark chocolate, licorice, port wine again, oak tannins and finishes with espresso bitterness and a little charred meat. Full bodied and creamy. Really, really good imperial stout with impressive depth of flavour.

Habanero (3569) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2015
Bottled. Pours black with an average tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, vanilla, wood andchocolate notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and slightly bitter with some alcohol. Medium bodied, oily texture and flat to soft carbonation. A very nice Impy.

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle... Pours dark brown (nearly black) with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. The aroma is fruity and almost perfumey, furnishing notes of dark berries and deep roastiness. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and adequate carbonation. The roasty flavor offers chocolate, boozy liquor, dark berries and charcoal. Finishes with moderate bitterness and burnt, carbonic notes. Dries out. Bottle courtesy of Plovmand!

LoFi (1700) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle from backlog. Black with a light brown head. Aroma: bourbon, grape juice, ripe red apples, chocolate. Taste: bourbon, sweet licorice, fruits and berries, wood, milk chocolate. Quite full-bodied. The regular version is a favourite, but this unfortunately didn’t meet my very high expectations. Still nice of course.

Beerconnaiseur (166) - BELGIUM - JUL 14, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2014 50cl bottles from a collector, aged at least 3 years. Never released in its home country (DK), this special edition of the famous Hr. Frederiksen pours black with medium foam and nice lacing. Explosive Bourbon aroma : so lovely! Mead, dark honey, booze, wood, dark chocolate, marzipan, malt and an overal mild soury aged character. Sticky Bourbon aftertaste that lingers on in the mouth. Very, very nice!

Sparf (193) - Östersund, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2014
Doft av choklad, rostad malt, aning rått kött och en träaktig spritarom. Kolsvart brygd och ett tunt lager av storbubbligt skum. Mycket kraftig fatsmak, ackompanjerad av alkoholtyngd, mycket kraftigt rostad malt samt en touch av salt lakrits. Förvånansvärt tunn i kroppen och med för mycket kolsyra. I eftersmaken tonar den rostade malten och saltlakritsen sakta bort.
