COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Som det danske bryggeri, der ligger tættest på Sverige, har vi altid følt en åndelig nærhed – grænsende til ømhed – overfor vore mange svenske fans. Især vores solide Imperial Stout Hr. Frederiksen har nydt stor popularitet hinsidan.
Derfor tøvede vi ikke længe, da vi fik en forespørgsel fra sveernes rige, om ikke vi kunne lave en særlig svensk udgave af Hr. Frederiksen. Gennem vore tætte - og indrømmet også lettere suspekte – forbindelser til den skånske underverden lykkedes det os at fremtrylle noget så sjældent som et træfad, der har rummet svensk rødvin. Jep, svensk rødvin. Vi vurderede at netop blågule tanniner og amagerkansk sort øl kombineret med fadlagring i et helt år ikke kunne undgå at blive andet end en heldig og hellig alliance. Vi håber, at du vil vurdere, at vi havde ret. Nyd Hr. Frederiksen – Swedish style.

Smagenoter:
I denne udgave fremstår Hr. Frederiksen stadig sort som natten med et delikat og cremet lysebrunt skum, der efterlader lette blonder på glasset. Duften rummer umiskendeligt en saftig og meget bæragtig let syrlighed, som dog aldrig overdøver basisøllens hårdt ristede malt. Fyldig og brændt med en solidt humlet kant, sådan er Hr. Frederiksen stadig i denne version. Rødvinen runder eller opbløder ingenlunde øllet, men tilføjer blot en diskret ekstra dimension.

thebeertourist (4651) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark as the night with a stable brownish foam. A wonderful aroma of vanilla, chocolate, fruit, marcipan. Some fruity bitterness and tartness countering the roasted coffee, chocolate and marcipan flavours. Dangerously drinkable, appropriate fizziness. What a treat!

Sigmund (4812) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2013
250 ml (though the label says 375 ml) bottle, from the brewery. ABV is 10.5%. Batch #300. Pitch black colour, moderate tan head. Strong roasty aroma with distinct notes of oak and red wine. Rich and warming mouthfeel. The flavour is oaky and roasty, with notes of red wine, dark dried fruits, coffee, chocolate and liquorice. Impressive stuff.

TheJestersBeer (1932) - SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours a very dark, almost black, with a firm brown head. Complex aromas, roasted malt, wood, vanilla, coffee beans, chocolate, tobacco, hops, ashes, honey, toffee. Off-dry, full bodied, medium to high bitterness, creamy CO2. Roasted, woody taste, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, smoke, tobacco, earth, chestnuts, mint, hops, fudge. The wood also adds a small, sour touch which is refreshing, and a fair deal of maturation – marzipan, walnuts, prunes. (2012-03-18)

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2012
Huge thick creamy light brown color head that mostly lasted and left lovely lacing in the glass. Pitch black color. Aroma of wood, hard roasted malt, dried fruit, chocolate, liquorish and light red wine. Over the palate came warming alcohol with roasted malt, liquorish, dried fruit, chocolate and some dry wood like feel. Full bodied with a soft carbonation and thick dry texture. Moderated to heavy sweet flavor with good counter bitterness. Lingering red wine and liquorish finish with the roasted malty feel at the very end. Great variation of a fantastic beer.

LoFi (1517) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle. Black with a light brown head. Aroma: chocolate, licorice, buttery red wine. Taste: chocolate, licorice, soy sauce, oak, red onions, red wine dryness, red berries. Full-bodied. Well balanced, the aging has removed the edges and the heavier flavours from the original Hr. Frederiksen, and has added quite a subtle touch of red wine. That doesn’t improve on the original (where for the record I love those edges) but this is a nice version all the same.
