Danish: Allerede når den hældes op i glasset, fornemmes det med det samme, at Hr. Frederiksen er en herre med både potens og stor personlighed. Begsort som Hr. Frederiksens humor er denne ”Imperial Stout” efter amerikansk forbillede med et tæt og cremet, lysebrunt skum, som efterlader pikante blonder i glasset, efterhånden som det modstræbende lægger sig. Vi indrømmer det gerne – vi er gået amok med maltene i denne øl, hele 8 forskellige har vi brugt, og det er de sorte og brændte, der giver øllet både dets farve og den nærmest ekstreme fylde – dette er nærmest et fudbyrdet måltid på flaske. Også bitterhed leverer de brændte malte sekunderet af amerikansk Centennial humle. Åh jo, Hr. Frederiksen er en oplevelse at byde op til dans, han bør dog nydes langsomt, men så kan han til gengæld også holde en hel aften, hvor man kan varme sig ved hans alkohol og udfordrende charme.
Vi har opkaldt denne øl efter en god ven uden hvis fantastiske støtte og assistance Amager Bryghus ikke var, hvor det er i dag.

English: Even when just poured into the glass, you feel straight away that Mr. Frederiksen is a master of potency and great personality. Pitch-black as Mr. Frederiksen’s humor, this American style Imperial Stout has a dense and creamy, light brown head that leaves an abundance of lacing on the glass as it reluctantly settles.
We are happy to admit that we have gone slightly berserk with malt in this beer, eight different varieties were used including black and roasted malts that give this beer its color and almost extreme density - this is almost a meal in a bottle. The bitterness is also supplied by the roasted malts backed by the American Centennial hops.
Mr. Frederiksen is an experience to be savoured he should be enjoyed slowly throughout the course of an entire evening where you can warm yourselves by his alcohol and provocative charms.
We have named this beer after a good friend without whose wonderful support and assistance Amager Brewery would not be where it is today.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, wheat malt, oats, hops and yeast

Garrold (3015) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle. Buxton Tap. Clear, very dark brown. Film, and a few bubbles of tan head. Lots of legs. Moves slowly round the glass. Nose has wood. Chocolate. Blackcurrant. Liquorice. Glue. Thick malts. Big hop. Taste is silky sweet, then big, tarry, acrid, roast bitter. Big hop bitterness too. Wow. This is bitter. Lots of chew on the palate. Some booze, although maybe not to the tune of 10.5%. Finishes long, roasty, boozy bitter. Big and daft and rough as you like.

Bottle shared at Chriso’s. 2012 vintage. Black, small foamy brown head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, pine, fruity hops. Body is medium, soft carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is coffee, tangy dried fruits, hoppy astringency with a dry ashy finish. Nice.

Kita (1592) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 19, 2015
Bottle, 0.50l & Hoppiness beer stop, shared with colleagues. Pours pitch black with large creamy brown head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, leather and alcohol. Taste starts with sweet and smooth roasted malt and chocolate, follows by licorice, herbs and dark fruits, mouthfeel is warming alcoholic, while finish is moderate bitter. Full body, thick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Still surprisingly drinkable despite the high ABV...

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2015 Pours black opaque colour with foamy stable brown head. Aroma with mild low detectable alcohol, hints of chocolate, coffe, mocha, vanilla and with some fruity notes. Flavor is similar: alcohol is very well hidden, with coffee, chocolate, vanilla and roasted like malt sweetness, oily smooth (oat) and with slight fruity note of cennential hop in the end. Malt sweetness is medium, hop bitterness also, body is sticky, carbonation low. For sure another very good brew from this brewery, for me much better then their imperial stout from sinner series Pride.

coachd (381) - Missouri, USA - AUG 8, 2015
Aroma of ice cream like sweetness, roast and hops with a burnt quality. Good, but not particularly strong. Pitch black appearance with fair amount of light tan foam. The thinness of the appearance keeps it from being a 5. Taste is a very sharp bite of roast and hops that lasts well into the aftertaste, finally giving way to a booze burn. Nothing sweet here, it’s a full fledged Imperial Stout. Surprisingly thin palate; I really wanted more in this aspect. Overall this was good; I would classify it as a poor man’s Bell’s Expedition Stout. Not 100 in my book by any means, but enjoyable and potent, bith in flavor and ABV.
