Editor’s note: a special one-off only available at The Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012.

Danish: På Amager Bryghus er vi kendt for at gøre tingene grundigt – når vi endelig gør dem. Således også med vores fadlagrede øl. Vores signaturøl Hr. Frederiksen gav vi således en seriøs omgang træ, faktisk hele 26 måneder på et whiskeyfad fra det lille og eksklusive Colorado-destilleri Stranahan. Der går ondsindede rygter om, at vi havde glemt alt om dette fad, hvilket naturligvis ikke er sandt. Amager Bryghus har et fuldkomment og præcist overblik over sit fadlagringsprogram. Til Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012 har vi fremstillet denne helt særlige udgave, som vi har lagret yderligere 3 måneder med hele vanillestænger. Det har givet den rustikke øl en diskret sødme og en blød krydret kant. Men selv med disse formildende omstændigheder må vi advare om, at dette bestemt ikke er nogen hanrej af en øl.

English: Amager Hr. Frederiksen (Colorado Whiskey Vanilla Edition) A barrel aged Imperial Stout with whole vanilla – festival special, only available at CBC 2012, 11% We barrel aged our signature beer, Hr. Frederiksen, for nothing less than 26 months on a barrel that formerly held Colorado whiskey from Stranahans. Then for CBC we wanted our fans to have an extra special treat, so we aged the beer for another 3 months, this time with whole vanilla. It both mellowed out the edges and added a discreet and subtle spicy edge. But don’t worry, this for sure still ain’t no cuckold of a beer. Hr. Frederiksen still kicks some serious ass.

Palme (4122) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2012
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. This is a pretty damn black one with a quickly fading off white head. It completely vanishes actually. Lots and lots of vanilla on the aroma! Heavy woody also, with coffee and sweet chocolate blended with smoky whisky. Really nice! It’s average carbonated and has a thick oily texture. Heavy vanilla flavors! Lots of chocolate, some dark black espresso and it’s light stingy as well. Really heavy on the vanilla! Just gotta love it! 12.05.2012

Scopey (12507) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2012
Tap at CBC, May 2012. It pours very dark brown, with a thin, light tan head. The nose is toffee, vanilla, toasted coconut, coffee, bourbon and amaretto. The taste is vanilla, toffee, charcoal, whiskey, meat, coffee, alcohol warmth, hay, floral, amaretto, almond, touch of spice and toasted coconut. Full body and fine carbonation. Good balance and surprisingly smooth.

jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Tap @ CBC. Deep black color with a creamy tan head. Attractive. The nose is STRONG whiskey and vanilla. The aroma is nose-stinging in heat, quite sugary. Light chocolate, roasted malt. The taste is deep hot chocolate, spicy wood. Loads off vanilla. Muddled roasted malts and chocolate-dipped fruits. Full-bodied, slick and heavy. Overall, it’s good, but I find this a heavy touch of a stout. The more nuanced flavors of this beer have no chance to show themselves alongside the dominating boozy vanilla.
