Danish: Amager Hr. Frederiksen (Portvinsfad) – en portvinslagret Imperial Stout.
Var den oprindelige Hr. Frederiksen en potent kraftkarl med skarpe kanter, så har han i denne inkarnation i udpræget grad fundet ind til sine kvindelige sider. De 12 måneder på portvinsfade har nemlig dæmpet temperamenterne og skabt en anderledes blød og fremkommelig øl – uden at den af den grund har mistet det mindste af sin virilitet, hvilket de 11% alkohol i udpræget grad vidner om.
Øllen er det sorteste af sort med et cremet lysebrunt skum, der efterlader de nydeligste ”gardiner” i glasset. Portvinspræget fornemmes klarest i næsen, som er blød og rund – prøv at lade den gå rundt til desserten ved næste familiefest. Kroppen er stadig fyldig med rigelig brændt malt og toner af mørk, bitter chokolade. Træfadet tilføjer en rustik og let oxideret kant – akkurat som i de bedste portvine. Til gengæld har de 12 måneder på træ ikke fået gjort det af med Amagers velkendte bitterhed, som i Hr. Frederiksen kommer både fra de hårdt ristede malte og en generøs tilsætning af humle. Og den indbyggede alkohol gør pejsen overflødig, for du kan varme dig ved Hr. Frederiksen med portvinsnæsen alene.
Brygget af: Amarkansk kommunevand, dansk pilsnermalt, tysk hvede- og münchenermalt, engelsk sortmalt, chokolademalt, umaltet ristet byg, havregryn, Centennial humle og amerikansk overgær.

English: In his original form Mr. Frederiksen was a potent, forceful fellow with some sharp edges, he has in this incarnation heavily taken to his female side. The 12 months spent ageing in port wine casks has subdued his temperament and created a different soft and rounded beer, he has however lost none of his virility to which the slight increase in alcohol to 11% will testify.
This beer is the blackest of the black with a creamy light brown head, which leaves the finest lacing around the glass. The effect of the port ageing can be felt most clearly on the nose which is soft and rounded - try sending it round the table in the place of dessert at the next family party. The body is still plump with plenty of roasted malt and notes of dark, bitter chocolate.
Wooden barrels add a rustic and slightly oxidized edge to this beer - just as in the best port wines. In contrast, the 12 months in wood has not done away with Amager’s familiar bitterness, as with the original Mr. Frederiksen flavours come both from the hard roasted malts and a generous addition of hops, the built- alcohol makes your fireplace superfluous, you can warm yourself by the radiant heat of Port aged Mr. Frederiksen alone.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, wheat malt, oats, hops and yeast

Theydon_Bois (12178) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2015
Bottle split at Chriso Easter tasting, thanks to the Chriso cellar, 04/04/15. Pitch black with a dirty tan covering that quickly dissipates. Nose is a rich roast base, light spice, dark fruits, woody notes, chocolate tones. Taste comprises rich roast, ashen tones, dark chocolate, spice, dark fruit rinds, tangy red berry, winey/port BA resonance. Full bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with subtle warming alcohol. Solid stuff, has aged very well.

Ughsmash (7331) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Bottled. Poured deep brown with a short-lived, rich mocha head. The aroma picked up lots and lots of near-burnt coffee and Port wine.. pretty much as expected, with spicy, older vinous notes on the edges of the nose (well-aged).. the barrel cut through the sugars and roast well.. very nice! The flavor opened with tangy barrel and vinous notes, with well-roasted coffee following.. vinous warmth rose as the drink progressed.. finished with lots of burnt coffee roast, lightly-tangy Port barrel, and belly warmth. Heavier-bodied with low carbonation.. this wasn’t quite brilliant, but it sure was very good.

Svesse (6857) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2014
(Bottle) Black colour with frothy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with black coffee, oak wood, liquorice, port wine, raisins, red fruit and dark chocolate. Malty, roasted taste with notes of black coffee, dark chocolate, raisins, roasted malt, oak wood and a finish with balanced coffee bitterness and a warming and vinous touch of port wine. Full body, with a certain sweetness. The barrel ageing works exceptionally well, the port wine character is clearly evident, but quite balanced, adding complexity to the beer rather than taking over the show. Lovely beer!

mcberko (8738) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2013
375mL bottle, courtesy of Nisse666 (thanks a lot, Tomas), pours black with a medium tan / brown head. Aroma of port wine barrel, subdued roasted malt, and charcoal -- very heavy and liqueurish on the nose. Flavour is dominated by the port barrels, bringing out notes of port liqueur and red wine, followed alcohol and subdued roasted malts. The port barrels have totally overtaken this, and not for the better, as boozy liqueur notes dominate making it a bit difficult to drink. The complexity of the base beer seems to be obscured by the barrel aging. Still, nice effort, but not too enthralling.

madvike (3072) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle - Pours dark cola color with a tan ring of head. Nose is boozy, sharp, and sweet, with dark ashy malt. Taste is smoke, ash, dry dark malt, and a light sweet booziness and a warm finish. Thin, slick, and low carbonation. Pretty limp.

jsquire (3695) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Dark beer with some garnet colors around the edges when held against the light. There was no pop when I released the cork, and the beer itself was was pretty still. Big sweet malt profile with molasses and brown sugar. This is a very dry beer with some grassy hops, some red wine/port flavors and a long dry finish. This beer is better warmer. The alcohol is well hidden until the end, when it kicks you in the head. Nice specialty beer.
