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."

Sampled from bottle at Borresteijn’s place, best before January 2018. Very dark red to black with a tan head.

Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty, a little boozy taste of molasses, dark chocolate, vanilla and dark ripe fruits, followed by a medium long, warming-alcoholic finish. Medium body, slightly oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice, but very boozy.

Flavour is medium sweet, wood, roasted malts, chocolate brownie, hint of varnish and green apples, harsh bitter and boozy finish. Medium bodied. The base beer is much better imho.
