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.

Gerbeer (2039) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with slight tan head. Aromas of dark berries, sweet dark chocolate, and dry roasted malts. Flavors of bitter dark chocolate, ash, and dry roasted malts. Not getting the smoothness from the oats but still very nice.

jksipa (427) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. Opaque dark brown with a tiny beige head that doesn’t linger. Nose has lots of chocolate and coffee with a dose of vanilla, roasted nuts, toffee, dark fruit and underneath it all some pine and grass. First impression is of a medium sweet toffee start, but this is only momentary before a big coffee and dark chocolate bitterness takes over and continues through to a dry chewy finish. This is a big beer with a lot of flavour but still not enough to cover the 10.5% alcohol. Mouth is medium full with very soft carbonation. Needs to be savoured slowly.

bigda83 (310) - Jamestown, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours black, somewhat light and watery, and a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, coffee, and light floral. Taste starts kind of sweet, then gets more on the bitter level of black coffee. Full body, smooth to drink, very bitey and bitter to end. Not my favorite in the category, but I’d drink it again.

deepeary (204) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2014 500 ml bottle from the LCBO. Black with mocha head. Smells like sweet roasted malt, coffee, bitter chocolate, sweet cherry cola, some hops. Syrupy. Sticky. Taste follows the nose. This is a heavy , sweet sipper. Lingering bittersweet finish. A bit too sweet for me.

Deep black pour with a thin somewhat creamy dark brown head oily and light lacing ..... Aroma of burnt malts, dark fruity yeast, licorice, dark roasted coffee and dark chocolate ..... Taste of bitter cocoa, licorice, dark roasted malts, burnt malts and dark fruit ... Smells and tastes similar and the abv is hidden completely .... Finish is bitter, and dry with a lingering roasted malt .... Mouthfeel is oily and dry .... Excellent imperial stout well balanced flavors

Hopmaestro (249) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
Aroma is citric hops perfectly matched with a thick roasted malt smell. The taste and mouthfeel is full bodied, rich malts with the classic bitterness in it, some liquorice underneath and dark chocolates. I can’t say anything bad about this one except that it is outrageous that it is hard to get in Sweden nowadays. Someone has to fix that, if not, I’ll start a company and import it myself. Because if you don’t like their brews, you most probably are a Heineken man.

rejtable (1454) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2014
Man this is awesome! Pours pitch black with a good tan frothy head and tons of lacing. Nose is espresso, bitter chocolate. Flavours are espresso, bitter chocolate, maybe some molasses, some dark fruit like figs. Taste heavy/med sweet, med/heavy bitter. Big beer in the mouth, lots of carbonation and a long bitter finish. Alcohol is very well hidden. Crazy good beer.
